Canvas-ing for Random Arts

It's with great pleasure I  am able to show you my
first post for a New Blog I was invited to join.
It's called Random Arts - and local to me.
You can find it Here  The Store is owned and run by
the Very Talented Amanda Mason and our 
First Inspiration Challenge began on the 1st July.
All the details regarding the Challenge are Here

Our Mood Board


I will be showing two project a month and my first one is
what we call a 'free post' where we have a free hand as to
what we make as long as we use products from The Store

I decided to just have a little play with some of the products
here by making a small canvas.

Sorry for the quality of this photo but I took it
on my phone and it is the only one I have.
The stencil is from AB Studio and
Tim Holtz Distress Grit Paste (super stuff)
I then added some colour with Art Alchemy Metallic Paint
then a splash of colour to the background with
Nuvo Shimmer Powder in Storm Cloud and some random text,
laces with a touch of Art Alchemy Wax for colour
 and cheesecloth. Also a few black flowers to the back.
I then got sidetracked with my Bo Bunny butterfly and forgot 
to photograph what I was doing. 
Applied some gesso first then while it was wet
added some Little Birdie Mica Powder, 
Art Alchemy Waxes in Rich Copper and Vintage Gold.
Topped with a painted cabachon. 
As the photo has quite a bit of black I though it needed
a little more so added five tiny pearls (one is hiding) to the lace.

Here's a few close ups!

These are the items I used from Random Arts Online Store
in no particular order
Finnabair_Waxes Vintage Gold/Rich Copper
Little Birdie Natural Mica Powder
Bo Bunny Laser Cut Butterfly Chipboard
Other products used from my stash. 
Thank you so much for taking time to drop by
I will be back next week for a bigger project for

Seeing how you create in steps via photos is mind blowing to me! This is gorgeous and so time consuming to create I'm sure, but what a wonderful end result! Congrats on joining the new challenge blog!
