Mega Swap - Lotstodo


This is the mega swap piece that I made for the swap on the Lotstodo Forum which Andrea arranged. My maker is Ellen and my reciever is Ju. Andrea set the criteria for the swap and mine was to use, a canvas the wrong way round, incorporate brown and silver, use a word and a number and a piece of metal. The background is a tumble dryer sheet sprayed with glimmer mist and distressed re-inkers. I painted the top of the canvas silver and the sides brown. I added the image, the various metal pieces, the silver bow and the gems to the crown. I cut a piece of wire mesh to fit the canvas and stapled it to the wood, added the 4 brown buttons, cut the letters from brown card with my new storybook cartridge for the cricut machine to spell out No1 Prince.
