Dream Canvas - DT project Tracy

Hi, something a little bit different from me this month, I decided to have a go at doing an art canvas. I am pretty sure this will be the first of many as I now have my daughters friends all wanting one!
I used a lot of elements from the Imagine If store which you will be able to see in the next few photos.

Firstly I used a brick stencil to add a bit of texture to canvas then arranged my chipboard pieces until I was happy then covered everything with Gesso

And then I got to get messy!!! using many layers of Tim Holtz Distress Paint "Walnut Stain", Distress spray stain "Twisted Citron and Ground Expresso" And then finished edges with Distress Ink "Vintage Photo"
I then used my Gelatos to highlight areas. I felt it still needed something else so that's when I added a few embellishments. Here's a couple close ups.

So I really hope you enjoyed my project and it inspired you to get your paints, sprays and stains out!!! Jo has an amazing amount of chipboard to play with the ideas are never ending!
