I finally made my first altered canvas! What fun! I used an atc-sized canvas from Dick Blick Arts, crackle paints, grungeboard, stickles, distress inks, mixed up a spray of distress ink refill, water, and perfect pearls in a mini mister and sprayed the wings with that, and a word brad. I think that is about all I used. Ranger all the way! I don't know why I waited so long to try it. It was soooo easy and fast other than waiting for the paint to dry and crackle. It didn't crack a lot, so next time I need to go thicker on the paint.
I also used gold metallic paint dabber on the edges.This is for a dear friend of mine , Pat, on one of my groups as she won the Winner Takes All contest for January, so this is what I am sending her. She is so sweet and selfless and is always so giving to everyone in the group, so I want to do a little extra for her this time. I hope she likes it!
