ECLECTIC ELLAPU CHALLENGE...."Anything Goes"

Hi Everyone,
Today is the start of the weekly Challenge at Eclectic Ellapu.. This weeks theme is Anything Goes...  that means... cards, tags, Boxes, altered art projects.. anything you have created yourself..sounds fun .. well you can link up HERE See you there!! Have fun.






I choose to alter a little canvas! On the background of the canvas I added the netting that you get  in the supermarkets that hold the oranges in!! I put that on first with pva glue.. than added the elements.. I them painted everything in Gesso white & left to dry, Then I just had fun with the Dylusions inks (vibrant Turquoise &  cut grass & White Linen)  when all dry I used a little Inka Gold around piece.... Highly rec for fun & inky fingers for days... tee-hee x x x

Thank you so much for your visit today Enjoy the BH Weekend.... Hugs May x x x x
