Good Morning Crafty Friends,

How are you all enjoying your weekend so far?

I managed to get quite a few jobs crossed off my list yesterday and hoping to finish it off today.

Today I am sharing my canvas that I created on Wednesday whilst I was at Kath's for our arty crafty day.  Kath has done one similar and you can see hers over on her blog.

A combination of Powetex and IndigoBlu products have been used to create my canvas!

Warning there are a few photographs!

This is the finished piece, I have sprayed Junk and Disorderly acrylic paint leather corset over the complete canvas, left for 24 hours to dry before dry brushing kingfisher blue metallic paint over the textures.

This close up shows the textures which consist of burlap, hessian, string and muslin.
There are also beads and art stones too.

In this photograph you can see the stencilling on the canvas which was done using modelling paste and IndigoBlu stencils. I then dipped the materials into a Powertex product and arranged around the porcelain face.

In this close up you can see I have give her a hood.

In this photograph I have covered with Powertex to make it stiff and added the art stone and beads too give lots of dimension and textures.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Fabulous canvas Linda, the design and choice of colour is gorgeous but just one thing I have to say, that face OH it give me the creeps. Maybe its because it's so white. Don't want to offend but just had to say it.Hugs Jennifer xx
