GD: Liesbeth Fidder #3 Altered Canvas {Part 2}

Hello, it's Liesbeth here for the last time this week! Let's finish the canvas we started yesterday.

I did the same background- technique as the card of the first day this week: I applied some drops of Fresco Finish onto the craft sheet. I used Hey Pesto, Yellow Submarine and Inky Pool.

I sprayed (much) water onto the paint and pressed a piece of Smoothy White Stamping Card into it. Dried it with my heat gun.

I stamped the houses (LPC028)  2 times onto the paint background with black StazOn ink.

 For the next step, I used the Eclectica Shapes 01 (stem) and Eclectica Shapes 02.(circle
I inked the woman stamp (LPC029) and pressed the Eclectica shape circle upside down on here face , an easy way to be sure to stamp her face in the centre. I stamped some some text (LPC028) onto the stem.

I coloured both pieces with Fresco Finish Inky Pool and Yellow Submarine and some colour pencils for the face.

I cut out pieces and bits, and small arches  from the houses, I used my fantasy, not as big as the houses really are, smaller...very tiny here and there! I hope the photo's show what I mean :-)

I cut the bottom side of the houses a round shape so they'll fit at the circle later.

I glued the circle and stem onto the canvas and added the houses and arches to the circle by using 3d foam tape, to make a flower.

From the left overs of the painted paper, I cut out some stamped (houses) circles and glued them onto the canvas. I finished the flower and the edges of the canvas by applying some Treasure Gold Renaissance, I just used my finger for this.

To make a wall hanging, I punched two holes and added eyelets.

I put a piece of blue metal wire, with two glass beads,  through the holes and bent a heart.

The finished piece!

So, this was the last part of my 3rd month as a PaperArtsy Guest Designer, I loved doing it again ! Hope you liked my projects and hope you give it a try yourself!

See you next month, thanks for joining in!

Leandra Says: Beautifully finished Liesbeth! The paint spots and water technique is so vibrant, a real testament to how fabulous Fresco Chalk Acrylics are, even when diluted

Gillian Says: Genuis ... love how you have created such depth/dimension to this canvas. The centre piece is striking. Thanks for a great week of inspiration.
