Canvas art

My grandkids spent the night a couple week-ends ago and wanted to work on some more canvases again. Here is the one I made with them. They took theirs home before I got any pictures if them. AJ's is very similiar to mine except his coloring was richer and deeper and Victoria's used a lot of Dyan Reevely stamps and was very quirky and fun. We started out with Distress stains and then held up the canvases and misted with water to make them run. After dry, we added some distress ink here and there. Stamped out images with black archival on white tissue paper. Many background stamps and colors of Archival inks and then adhered the stamped images down. Added some washi tape here and there, some buttons, coins, and a compass. They just love making these and they each have another background done and waiting for the next play-date with Grandma Kathy.
