Look what I had a go at...................

A Canvas!!!!

I have never attempted one before and I have so many canvases because I really really wanted to!
I was always too nervous of mucking it up and never took the dive into it.
But I attempted this one last for Scrap It Lah and I am soooooooo happy with it.

We are changing the kids rooms around tomorrow because Montana gets the draught from the toilet and bathroom into her room {even though I block it off with draught stoppers} and she is sick again.
So this will be lovely in her new room!!

I used Impasto to create some texture and to grab on the plastic mesh stuff and keep it on the canvas. I looooove the texture that it has given!!!



I love the whiteness of it too when it is in clumps and love the texture when it's thinner.

So I am happy with this and I will be having another play with canvases soon. I have another idea in my head!!

Bec, it is a STUNNER for sure!!! Love all those lovely girlie colours and I see what you mean about the clumps....it really adds to all the textures and feel of your canvas

Thank you for playing along our challenges. Your canvas is beautiful! I love it! The mesh definitely lends more texture and I am so glad that you were willing to play with a canvas this time. Hope that there will be more beautiful canvases from you soon.
