We have some new inspiration at StampARTic. We have challenged ourselves to make something for the home. I decorated a Tim Holtz canvas. Crafting can often be expensive. Therefore I decided to make a mixed media canvas, using a lot of things that are considered as trash, mixed with flowers and some embellishment.
The photo is an old family photo. The car is a diecut from an old cardboard box - cut with Tim Holtz - Old Jalopy dies.
I have used different paints and mediums (gesso, distress paint, MetaMica and acrylic black and brown paint) to colour the bits and bobs on the canvas.
This is what the canvas looked like before I painted it. The bits and bobs are from a two dismantled clocks, a dismantled computer and sewing machine, soda can tabs, old buttons and charms
