Memories


I had this one on the go too whilst I was doing the one below, as I had to keep waiting for bits to dry on each one!!! I covered a piece of glossy card in gold acrylic dabber paint. Used a photocopy of the girl and transferred the image into the paint. When it was dry I slid the piece of card into the back of the canvas. I painted the wooden frame with sandal acrylic dabber paint and added a touch of gold. To the middle I added a copper skeleton leaf, gold heather, 3 yellow flowers and 1 white and finished them off with a bow. Around the frame, the label, arrow and hinge are grungeboard shapes covered with gold acrylic dabber, washers, wire, screws and a bracket have also been added. The squiggle on the left and the word memories were done freehand using gold outliner paint
