Teal into Rust Canvas

I made this canvas using lots and lots of different technique's and crackle mediums
I used so many I can't remember what exactly I did. I do Know that it was 
all inspired by France papillon.
What I do remember was that I built it all up gradually.
This was a small canvas board about A4 size.
I tripple embossed a couple of Tando circles and I used a embossing folder
to make the rulers.
One was used with copper sheet and one on card.
I used a quinacridone gold along with autumn leaves gold along with
Prussian Blue hue & teal magicals with glazing medium was used
to colour it.
Micro beads along with art stones were put into the pastes while wet.
Prussian Blue hue along with teal magicals with glazing medium was used
to colour it.
I Attached the circles to the canvas to complete the piece.
I hope you all like my canvas please feel free to leave me a comment or two as 
I appreciate each and every one of you dropping by.

Junes post over at SASPC

Hi everyone I have a post for you today which was 
inspired by the work of Seth Apter.
I used a mix of chalky finish paints from Deco art and 
different pastes stencils etc.
Old pieces of art work that was lying on my desk became
part of the layout.
I used a couple of his stamps which i love but haven't 
had time to play with properly.
Carabelle Studio XL Mask - Chiffres & deco art's black 
modelling paste .
I made a little pocket to pop a couple of tags in that are 
very grungy and can be pulled out to jot notes on.
Some old texture fades pieces that were lying on my desk.
Again one of my favourite stamps a clock face.
I really enjoyed making this piece and building up the 
A close up.

That's it for today thank you for poping by and 
don't forget to join in with us and have 
a chance to win amazing goodies.

I am proud to be a member of Sandee & amelie's design team.

Anything Goes over at SASPC May challenge

I have a media board for you today as my inspiration
for this months challenge.
I started with home made tissue paper which I made by
stamping directly onto plain tissue paper with black
Stazon ink with various stamps.
next I glued this onto the media board with Deco Art Matt Medium
which was followed with DA modelling paste put through
a distressed harlequin stencil (Tando mini's)
 I used a watery wash of DA Gesso once dry follow 
with a second coat.
Next came water colour in greens and greys apply them 
very watery and dry between coats. Once happy
I attached my triple embossed heart and crackle 
Lastly a trickle of Deco Art crackle glaze with a little green
mixed in was applied to the top of the media board.
At the bottom I typed the word ART & mat it 
onto black card.
I am proud to be a member of Sandee & amelie's design team.
I hope that I have inspired you today and that you will
come and play along with us today.
Cheers Dee x
