Challenge #169 from
and it couldn't be anything else but
We have 3 sponsors for this challenge
*using Ppinky Dolls Art "I love Christmas"*
As this challenge will last into the New Year, I decided to make
a project using images from all 3 sponsors and post them
First up is this lovely image from Ppinky Dolls Art.
It reminded me of those wooden panels we used to get back in the 70/80's
with big eyed children, so it just had to go on a mini canvas.
Recycling an old canvas means you start with lots of yummy texture...
I coloured with my Promarkers to get that retro 70's feel.
A liberal coat of white gesso for the canvas before
gluing the image to the surface...
then added cerulean blue and white acrylic
to show up the texture again and blend in the image.
"Tea Varnish" over the entire piece gives it an aged grungy look...
and not forgetting the sides for added interest.
just love how the varnish pools in the textured
Enjoy :D XXX
