Altered Canvas: Cherished

I have, for a very long time, been mesmerized by Gabrielle Pollacco's altered canvas projects. After much deliberation I finally mustered courage to take on one such project. I was very happy with the results.

To complete the project I used multiple layers of cardstock. The flowers were in three shades, light blue, yellow and pale yellow, the alphabets were plain black (treated to seem like epoxy), and the vines were white chipboard (inked).

The flowers are inked and molded to give a 3D impact. Did not want them flat.

Now because this is cardstock, to make them durable they were first coated with layers and layers of home-made Mod Podge, then left to dry. Once dry they were layered and positioned on the canvas as desired.

The photomat is easily replaceable; you can use it to add a photo of your choice, or a quote or anything you like. Its basically a place holder.

And lastly, the canvas was securely packaged in a box.
And thats it! My first post for 2014 concludes. =D

Happy Crafting!
