Experimental Canvas

... for the Frilly and Funkie challenge: Get Crafty with Canvas. It is the first time that I tried my hand on a canvas and on tissue paper. It always scared me but I also really wanted to create something with both. The solution: take a masterclass with Lucy. Now, Lucy is the master and I took the class! It was great fun, a lot of mess and I learned a lot, thank you Lucy.
I covered the canvas with distress stains, stamped Crafty Individual images onto tissue paper and tore it up. Once the paint was dry I glued the images to the canvas - what a revelation!
 As the canvas looked a bit lost at first I added some rings stamped with a pen cap and white ink and some embellishments.
The edges of the canvas are covered with lace ... more canvases to follow .... Petra.

Gorgeous, Petra! Beautiful colors and images, and the white accents are such a great touch. :)

I absolutely love how it turned out, Petra. I think you added the white circles after I saw it and I think it softens the vibrant colour a lot. I think the way you chose the clock and the birds for your composition is terrific!

Petra, fabulous use of the CI stamps. Love those stamps against the bright background.
You obviously had lots of fun.

How have I missed Lucy's tissue class or maybe it is not an online class? I must go check this out! Petra, your canvas is so cool and I totally love the colors and all those stamped images! The lace is a sweet touch, kind of like your yummy baked goods! So thrilled to see you play along at Frilly and Funkie!
