Working With ARTChix: Vintage Mini Canvas.

A nice little bundle of stuff arrived from ARTChix on Thursday... I have to say I LOVE that German/Dresden Scrap Border. I have been glueing it to everything. it colours up so easily with alcohol inks or gilt wax polish, Inka golds etc. And with The Images ARTChix have, you dont really have to do much work to get a lovely result.
This little Canvas took 30 mins or less. Simply glue the image on to canvas. take an old book page and tear back an opening to show the image through. roll the edges back. glue it in place. Ink or polish the German scrap to desired colour and glue round the borders of the canvas. Add desired embellishments, distress or age with sprays or inks etc... and hey presto.

  1. I love this canvas. The German scrap works so well on the edges and look like real metal. the colours make is look very decadent too.

    Love

  2. I just adore the peeled back paper - looks just like you have discovered a secret - perhaps behind a page in a book - or even behind wall paper
