Teresa Collins Canvas LO

Teresa Collins has put out a wonderful canvas 12x12 sheet to play with especially if you love paint or gesso etc! It has a fabulous texture!

Here's what I did with mine:

It truly is fun!!

You can find the product here:
Image ... rod=SE2316

I covered it with impasto(or modgepodge etc) Then laid some old paper doilies on top

Covered them with some gesso but also added some really old paper flowers I had.... covered them with gesso too - for more texture!

And using Teresa's Blingage Carol's Clocks I smudged the clocks with gesso too!

So this is how its looking so far.. I've also got a corner of a baby wipe and lightly wiped back the petals of the flowers to show a little colour through the gesso

Now for the tissue paper - As soon as I saw this...I bought it just for scrapping!

So tearing off pieces you need to use impasto or the like and cover both sides of the tissue paper... I just use my fingers - I like to get messy!



Then add your embellies and a pic ...


And here's the finished canvas!

And here's the result of the Blind Scrap I held at Scrap Therapy too.
You can find it here
