Small Canvas number 1

I recently bought a pack of 4 canvas's and had been inspired to have a play with them.

I painted the background with a chalk based paint. When it had dried I placed a flower stencil onto the corners and spread paste across it. Another stencil onto the centre and dusty concorde distressed ink to add pattern. The strapless dress lady has been paper pieced and her arms, legs and face were coloured with copic pens. I added wings from the heart from the beetle from the Steampunkery stamps. The flowers are cut with Tim Holtz Tattered flowers and I cut them from wallpaper.

Thanks for visiting

I love the way you added wings to her & how they echo the shape of the ribbon in her hair too. The buttons alternate beautifully with those little daisies & I rather like the way that large stencilled flower melds into your Tattered Florals dimensional flower.
