Today I am sharing an altered canvas that I have created back in July but I have been saving it until now to share. It turned out pretty good and the whole process was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. The hardest thing is waiting for layers to dry.
For this project, I decided to give photo transfer a go. The only thing is I don’t have a printer at home so I asked my husband to print a photo at work with a laser printer. He wasn’t sure if he had one and I am still not sure the print was printed on a laser printer as the actual transfer process didn’t work as easy as the tutorials I watched on YouTube.
I added heaps of recycled embellishments and bits that I had been hoarding to this canvas. I really love the depth of texture and details.
Here you can see a bottle cap and some of the chipboard and lace embellishments under all the colour.
I left all the tails of the hot glue gun as I liked what they added to the finished piece. They look a lot like threads all over or even cobwebs. No need to dust it later on 😛
I used a whole heap of Colour Blast Products on this piece. I used Colour Sprays, Shimmer Sprays, Embossing powder and the Texture paste. Every product added a little bit more to the piece.
Here’s a tip: The Colour Paste can also be added directly to metal embellishments without any need to prime them. Here you can see I added it to this metal butterfly.
I then added black and white drawing ink splatters and a bit of Royalty Colour Shimmer Spray in splatters to tone down the white. ( I went a little cray cray) Finally I added some more metal embellishments and a quote cut into strips. The quote is from the very first Kit the Habit Kit called Brave. That was one of my favourite kits. The other thing I did was add a chipboard title. This one is from Imaginarium Designs. I coated it in two layers of Bling Embossing Powder to make sure it was super shiny and really stood out.
I have wanted to make one of these for ages. They look more complicated than they actually are. So give it a go. I also created a process video you can check out here.
