Altered Canvas

A busy week being Half Term and after a trip to the cinema I fancied some "ME" time. Feeling inspired I decided to get messy and alter a canvas I'd had for years. It only took me one hour!

Scraps of  paper arranged on the canvas

Stuck them down and brushed over gel medium
Added some texture with stencil and texture paste

Some paint around the edges
Spritzed on bronze glimmer mist
Added some embellishments
Painted and glittered chipboard letters

Flowers and Chipboard bird

Pearls,birdcage and some metallic rub here and there

The final piece


  1. The canvas looks great :o) Can't believe you managed all that in only an hour! Did you see Mary Anne's post earlier in the week with a recipe for home made texture paste?

  2. This is gorgeous, love the step by step photo's - you almost inspired me to get messy but I don't think I'd ever be able to do something as lovely as this.

  3. That is fab - thanks for sharing a step by step to how you made it

  4. Super canvas, I love all the texture - beautiful.
