I hope you are having a fabulous crafting weekend.
I have popped in to show you my first ever Mixed Media canvas.
It is 10 " x 12 ".
I have been working on this for the last week.
My DD has just turned 30 today and will be coming out to see me in 10 days time, and I have made this as part of her Birthday present stack :-D
The little photo is of her and her Dad ( now deceased) when she was about 1 year old.
I was totally inspired by a piece made by GABRIELLE POLLACCO that I saw on You Tube.
I didn't have half the stuff that she used but I had great fun with what I had.
The frame at the bottom left is made by cutting the same design 8 times from card and sticking all the pieces together, since I don't have any of those chipboard pieces :-)
I made the octopus tentacles with air dry clay. Assorted beads and stuff from my stash and the starfish + shells are from my local beach.
The central shell part was made with rolled out clay and squashing it in an embossing folder.
The background is a mixture of acrylics + paints.
I printed out a vintage picture of a sailing ship (very tiny) and inserted it into a dinky little glass bottle :-)
I am pretty sure my DD doesn't look at my Blog so I should be safe showing this one here :-)
Thank you very much for stopping by. xxxxxxxxxxxx
