Bleeding Art Challenge

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends,

Today sees the start of our new challenge over at Bleeding Art.
This month the theme is Anything Goes.

A $10 CCB gift voucher has been donated by our Katie as the prize for the winner as well as being invited back as guest designer!

Here is my project which I have used 3 embroidery hoops.


I have covered 2 of the hoops with canvas and the third with twine.
I stenciled Imagination Crafts Mandala's with Structure Paste.
I have used Imagination Crafts Rusty Patinas in Rustique, Verdigris and Duck Egg.
All the embellishments are from my stash and the art stones are from Imagination Crafts too.


This is a close up of the smaller covered hoop.


The twine worked really well and stiffened up once painted over with PVA and the Rusty Patinas.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
