A Canvas full of Texture...

 Hi Blog friends...

At the end of November we had our Christmas all-nighter at Fruitful Hands in Benoni,where I created 2 pages and this canvas...and then due to some silliness, {black dog of depression and severe nervous eye twitching} nothing was done during December...I am trying very hard to get my self back into the creating mood,  but in the meantime I can show you what I did during the night and early hours crafting with friends. Amazing how the time flies...all dark until suddenly you blink and a new day has broken...

Now, with this canvas my aim was to do less and have some glorious white space...epic fail...LOL!!! Let's blame it on the awesome products I took with me, just HAD to use them all! I am really going to try to work 'cleaner' this year...don't know how far I will get, but let's give it a try at least...

I did however have fun layering different materials, canvas strips, paper strips, lace and fibres and colouring them with my Lindy's Magicals mixed with water. I took only them with as I tend to work with my mist sprays regularly and neglect my mica's and magicals.
I used the following colours on the canvas.

Pumpkin Mist
Rusty Lantern Lime
Steampunk Sepia

On the frame I used Autumn Plum and Terra Cotta. I also brushed some black Art Sugar into the crevices with some Soft Gel Medium.


From Finnabair's Art Ingredients range I used these products...

Copper Glass Glitters
Gold Leaf Mica Flakes
Black Art Sugar

I used Ranger's Texture Paste which held the colours of the Lindy's Magicals beautifully.

The next three shots are just some close-ups of the sides of the canvas.

Thank you for visiting me...I will have the second LO for you tomorrow...Take care...
