Here I am again trying to upload to my blog. I really must try to post more often. Everyday I tell myself to post my new projects, must somehow time runs away from me. But I am trying to make that one of my New Years' resolutions. So here I am posting a canvas I created as a gift for my cousin. She will in turn gift it to my aunt.
This is a 12x12 canvas. I used a piece of tissue, like you would use to put in a gift box, and glued it onto the canvas with mod podge. When it dried I used my distress ink pad and went over it lightly so that the textured areas would pick up the color. I usually start off with a array of colors from white to purple, and I just paint each embellishment to the color of my choice.
