Altered Canvas

 I've joined a swap on UKscrapper to make an altered Canvas. There wasn't a theme so we could do anything we liked.
I thought I'd show how i altered my canvas for this swap. The canvas size is 5x7 inches.
First i painted my canvas with brown acrylic paint. I had a piece of material which i wanted to use for this canvas. I frayed the edges & stuck it to the canvas.

I needed to decorated the sides which was done using a Dylusions stencil & an acrylic dabber colour Pool. I needed a tape measure but didn't have one but had a stamp tape measure & stamped it on a piece of cloth using Archival Aquamarine.

with a die cut dress dummy i coloured it with Distress stain Wild Honey & then stamped over that with a B-line back ground stamp in Aquamarine. The I coloured a little corrigated card with Pool acrylic paint & then used a boarder punch to make the edges look nice.
I had to saw in half to wooden cotton reels for this project because using them whole didn't look right.
The cotton reels were coloured using Wild Honey & edged with Inka gold. The buttons have been cut from card & then painted with Pol acrylic paint , edged with inka gold  & a pattern stamped on top.
Here is the finished Canvas i'm going to find this hard to part with as i'm rather pleased on how it turned out.


  1. Lovely canvas. I can understand why you would be reluctant to part with it. I don't think I could. I think the colours are well matched and look great.

  2. This is Gorgeous, I LOVE the colours detail and design x
