A larger canvas........

I've been playing and made a canvas using a pic of the kids taken a couple of months ago. This is bigger than previous canvasses I've worked on...it's about 7" x 10".

I started by covering the canvas with pieces of Provocraft paper and also some illustrations from an old Enid Blyton book  - these were of 2 brothers and their younger sister!! I then completely covered the canvas with gesso before using sequin waste and distress ink to add some details. After adding the photo I used various rub-ons and embellishments to complete it:

Materials used: Provocraft papers, old book pages, Claudine Hellmuth gesso, Ranger distress inks, Kaisercraft rub-ons, Fancy Pants rub-ons, Creative Imaginations rub-on, 7Gypsies rub-on, Maya Rd sheer ribbon, Heidi Grace plastic flower and heart, Heidi swapp plastic flower, Doodlebug buttons and brad, K & Co fabric brad, MME button.
Also used: cotton lace
