Altered Canvas by Athanasia Papantoniou

Hello Dear friends! Athanasia today with you to share a canvas Ι made with the May 2015 Limited Edition Mega Set.
For this project I used all the sprays of the set, plus the Silver Moon Turquoise, Golden Angel Wings and Morning Glory Azure embossing powders.
 First,  I added some light paste with two different stencils, and then I glued all the layers of papers, and the embellishments on the canvas.

After that, I had to deal with the chipboard piece ‘FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS’. I used three different embossing powders: first the Silver Moon Turquoise, then the Morning Glory Azure and last the Golden Angel Wings. I really love the result, it’s like real golden letters! One more thing I did, was to stamp on the embossed letters when they were still hot. You can do that only in a few seconds after the heating, and the effect it gives is amazing!

Next thing to do, was to color the composition with the sprays. I sprayed with the soft colors first in several spots,  and then I made only a few splashes with a paintbrush with the dark colors of the set.

I also used the Tilt A Weel Teal, Raspberry Lemonade and Merry Go Round Green magicals from the Under the Boardwalk set – just a tiny quantity of them in a few spots. Of course I didn’t forget to make some stamps here and there as a final touch.

That was all for today. I hope you got some inspiration and ideas – I’d love to see your projects for our color challenge!

Thank you for visiting, have a wonderful crafty time!
