Holiday fun

I've just got back from a short holiday to Barcelona with my two daughters. We had a great time wandering around, munching tapas and sipping sangria - perfect.

Got back on Friday and started playing with a back to front canvas (working on the back to make a sort of shadow frame).





While wandering around I stumbled across a collectors market and picked up some old postcards and ephemera so used some of those on this.

For the frame I stuck tissue paper and then spread on some texture paste which I stamped then heat dried to bubble it and add more texture. That covered the staples and canvas edge and then I painted on several layers of Fresco Finish paints. I might give it a touch of rub n buff later.

I used the same paints on the main canvas through stencils and some random stamping then started layering up ephemera and pictures.

Alas, my trusty old printer decided to give up on me so this isn't finished yet. I have more pics to print (have ordered from an online photo printing service) and once those are on I have some charms and other stuff to add, but I am quite pleased with how it is turning out.

Ah well, back to work tomorrow :(
