Art Passion Altered Canvas


Sharing my newest Dusty creation which is an altered canvas. I really enjoyed creating this as it is something a little different from what I am used to doing and I could make it a dimesional as I wanted.

'Art Passion'

I knew I wanted my canvas to be quiet dimensional so I started by dipping all the chipboard in hot water, once it was water soaked I gently pried the chipboard apart to create a frayed sort of a look. It worked fantastically and gave the peacock feathers a bit more bulk.

I applied texture paste to parts of the chipboard and then painted all with gesso.

I added some texture to the background and then added a nice wash of bright pink.

I mixed some of the Dusty In Colour Dusty Pink and Navajo White together to make a very light pink and lightly added to some of the chipboard.

I added some pretty pink Prima flowers and a sprinkling of butterflies to finish the canvas off.
