Mini Canvas

Flicking through old issues of Craft Stamper the other day, as you do, and came across a mini canvas project.  The colours are far too bright and I don't like the way the colour is across her face.  However, what I love about acrylics and gesso is that I can just paint a couple of layers of gesso over it and ta da, it's gone and I can start again.  So maybe tomorrow I'll show you the altered version.
Well, it's dark, cloudy, rainy, cold and totally miserable here in North Sheffield, so I've put the heating on, going to clean up and then get into the craft room and play.  Have a good day all.

  7. I love your canvas, the colours are great and the image looks fine to me.
    Hubby kept putting the heat on this weekend and I kept turning it off as it was too warm for me and he's supposed to be the hot blooded one being Spanish.

  12. Oh this is so lovely,I'm not so sure it needs any more alterations but i look forward to seeing your altered version,just to compare. Oh absolutely foul weather, i was at work all day, so at least i was getting paid for being stuck inside, although crafting would be better than scanning and packing. xoxox Ann
