Hi Everyone...

Welcome to December gosh this year has flown by....Today the new Challenge over at Craft My Life which will run throughout December & January so lots of time to make your wonderful creations.... we would love to see anything you make...No Cards or scrapbook pages please... we would love to see altered items, sewing, crochet, knitting, boxes, albums, anything that you create.... I have altered a canvas I hope you like it....





I used the stamp set Butterfly Dreams from JustRite stamps, I stamped onto tissue paper then transferred on to the inked canvas...I used DI inks...peeled paint & vintage photo the bottle image on the side is from paperartsy I used a swirl mask to create some movement in the middle, then sealed with some mod-podge...

Thank you so much for your kind visit today........

OMG --- , WOW, WOW,WOW, THIS IS IT which I would like to start near the future …
I tried to research in Japanese, " What is Altered Canvas ? ". I just found some nice video on You Tube " Mixed Media Altered Canvas ", and I had not seen like that art !!! And this YOUR Altered Canvas is also such a BEAUTIFUL ART !!!
I was very interested in this art, so the other day, I went to craft store and it was Black Friday Shopping (in U.S. very BIG shopping day after Thanksgiving day ! ), and I found the 60% off canvas, so I got some small canvas, and following day I got GESSO also.
I still do not know well what " Altered Canvas " is ..., but I just LOVE this type BEAUTIFUL ART, and I would love to try to make it for the future !!!
I LOVE YOUR ALTERED CANVAS, SUCH A GORGEOUS AND BEAUTIFUL , MAY !!!
LOVE, LOVE , LOVE IT !!! p(^o^)q"""

May
This is stunning.
I so like the fact that you held back from embellishing it, letting the stamp do all the talking. Imagine me saying such words, a person who adds lace even to masculine artwork!

Redanne said...

I agree totally with Lynne, your canvas is stunning and I too, am glad that you left off embellishing it, it does not need anything else at all - love it! Hugs, Anne x

I think it is perfect as you have done it. The beauty shines through your gorgeous work.

Thanks for the kind comments...I am quite pleased with that mini...I waited in line an hour to get one...there were only four left after me! Thank goodness I got one!

Afterwards I realized that I should have bought two more and put them away for the kiddies next Christmas...silly me...I read in the paper that was the best price on the Ipad mini in America on Black Friday!
But I can not stand very well at the best of times (bothers my back) so my daughter followed people to their car and got a buggy as it is impossible to get buggies on Black Friday. I then was able to lean on the buggy! Yay!

Elaine said...

Beautiful, love the style may x
