A Canvas for Granny


I think I mentioned that it is my Mum's 70th birthday next week. What do you get for someone who is 70? If they haven't got it by the time they are 70 then they don't need it do they!! I don't think I have ever made much for my Mum so I thought I would have a bash at a canvas for her. Started by covering it with some colours that go with her bedroom...

Then I went mad with more colour, gesso, circles punched from a book, stamping, stencilling and cosmic shimmers!


Finally I cut out some blue tits (and I think a coal tit) and added them along with some words.



I used my new modge podge to cover it all and stick it all well down! So there it goes, my first ever canvas. What did I learn? Don't paint modge podge over Distress Inks, they run!
