Canvas



This canvas has a bit of everything!!!! I tore the main image from a book, covered the canvas with mod podge, stuck the image on and gave it a coat of mod podge too. I used walnut distressed ink and juniper acrylic dabbers to create the background colours. I stamped the tickets and the word journey in black stazon. I tore a ticket in half and used that along with a black clock face and a grunge board letter j with gold wire wrapped around it to embellish. I cut and stuck various words relating to the image. I used a TH fragment to enhance the word luggage. I used my new craft tool to melt some green wax crayon and iron it onto the canvas. I covered the main image with a coat of bees wax. To finish I added 6 rusty nails along the top!!!!

This is a great piece - are you going to display it? I would. I've heard of 'mixed media' but I think you mixed practically everything you can lay you hands on here and what a stunning end result - a real masterpiece.

You've really pulled the theme together with the items you've added, the words and the image.

xxxxxxxxxx
