A new month, another 'Anything Goes' challenge at ALTERED ECLECTICS. We are strictly an altered art challenge so no papercrafts please.
I decided to alter a cheap canvas this month and started by painting it with DecoArt's Vintage white acrylic paint (even though it looks pure white in the picture below), then I got stuck in with the texture paste. I used an Imagination Crafts' diamond stencil and Sparkle Medium in Diamond and Gunmetal.
The flowers and cameo were made with Martha Stewart's Crafters' clay. I coloured the white clay with DI Black Soot to make the frame of the cameo. To make the large net flower I cut a strip of black net wide enough to fit between the diamonds on either side of the canvas and then stitched a running stitch down the middle. I drew the stitches tight to make the flower and then stitched it onto the canvas before adding the cameo with hot glue.
