Altered Canvas inspired by Liesbeth Fidder
I was inspired to have a go at a canvas this week after seeing the one Liesbeth made for PaerArtsy, have a look here.
I don't have any Lynne Perrella stamps in my stash and wanted to have a change from my usual florals - not sure if that was a good idea.
I chose the car and houses from Hotpicks 1207 and a large flower from 1109 - mainly as I really love these image but never use them !
I stamped onto tissue and applied to the canvas with matt medium, a few stamped cogs and stencilled in a few leaves (had to use either JOFY or Lin Brown stencils or stamps somewhere !) - all good so far.
I had it in my head I wanted a red car so on went watered down Blood Orange fresco paint - this is when I nearly gave up.
Anyway I persevered with some Hey Pesto, a touch of blue (can't remember which) and a smidge of Butternut - not loving it but loads better than where I thought it would end up.
At this point it was all looking a little flat so I've added some GP stencilling to the top. Not my favourite project but was fun to do (anything messy is always good in my book lol)
I need to lift the car image is anyone has some ideas ?
