Canvas Altered....

I was emailed by a gal asking me to post pics of some altered Canvas I had previously altered. The top canvas was primed with Gesso, and then several layers of Purple, navy and turquoise acrylic paint, It is done with sort of a dry brush technique, and after each layer I would wipe the excess which also helped to blend the colors, instead of looking as if all was painted in single stripes, when that dry I double loaded my brush with turquoise and white and dry brushed the opposite direction, finishing off with a sheer silver wash.  Used my cricut for the die cuts and painted those with the same technique used on the canvas. Added lace border,If you look close under the large flowers are lace flowers, I just cut a piece of lace about 3" long and gathered it to a circle and stitched it closed, then added prima flowers, crystal middles and lots of crystal flourishes, topped with a phrase and a photo of my son's friend, which this also doubled as a gift for her....
This canvas I did a bit differently, I did not prime the canvas with gesso, I left it as it was. Again using acrylic paint, this time just doing a dry brush all over and not to concerned about the blending. This canvas was more scrapped than painted. Using white paints for accents, and white rub-ons. also adding leaves and pearls from the floral dept at Hobby Lobby made a small spray to fit under the large Heidi Swapp flower.  I am not sure which one I like better, I guess it all depends on what we each prefer. I am working on a black and white canvas right now and hope to have pics up by the end of weekend.
My trip to see Grandson Chase is postponed as I came down with a horrible cold and I can not be around him, so I am quite sad I will have to wait untill next weekend to love on the little guy. Have a great weekend everyone. And Sharon I hope this helps....
