When I saw the Old Wooden Fence (DA1084) I just knew I had to use it or a 12x12 canvas. This chipboard piece is so beautiful, and needs to be on display!
I have painted the fence with white gesso, and then let the pieces dry for a minute surface down on a piece of paper. That way some of the paint sticks to the paper, and the chippies get an instant shabby look! I have also sanded the edges a bit.
The background of the canvas is misted with silver and gold mist, and I have also used a brick stencil to make some texture.
Here's a photo of the canvas before flowers and other embellies. I wanted to show you the Swirly Vine #4 large (DA1100). This piece I have misted with green mist and embossed with Mix'd Media Inx, color Leather.
And now for some close-ups:
The word "dreams" is from the Word Pack #4 (DA1077) and I just used it raw (touched with a bit of gesso when I finished off the canvas).
The Wagon Wheel (DA0697) worked perfect with the old wooden fence, and I kept this piece raw too.
Lots of dimension!
Thank you for stopping by today!
