2nd altered canvas

I painted the edges blue with Tim Holtz blue paint dabber than added heavy gesso. I pulled it across then canvas with a card then added splashes of blue paint. Stamped some background stamps into the heavy areas of gesso to add some depth. The photo's again are from her engagement photoshoot and without wanting to go too soppy, I don't know how soppy of a couple they are. I used the quote "Where there is love, there is life" very handy I found some old stamps of love and life-score! 
The curse of mod podge struck with the green sheet, I thought it was thicker and could take it but it couldn't and buckled noooooooooooooooooo, I am offically out of double sided tape so nothing else can be done because I'm so annoyed at the crinkles. The photo emphasises it but my perfectionist side is twitching wildy, I know better than to say it to her when I give her these because that's all she will be able to see I'm sure. But all in all, I'm happy with the way they came out and hope she doesn't shove them into the downstairs loo lol

  1. Lovely present Lou. I'm sure Paula will be delighted with both of them. I have that same stamp, must dig it out as it looks great on those butterflies.
