Everyday Journey

I'm back after a little blogging break.... a bit of family time was overdue!
I've made another canvas, this time with a more muted, vintage feel for a change!
This is a 5 x 4 canvas, nice and chunky so the sides can be painted/inked too...
I used cream  and mushroom paint as the base, smearing and sponging until I got the effect i wanted. Then onto the printing and stamping with lots of different background stamps and bits of junk...
I added a thin strip of text paper for my lady (100 Proof Press) to stroll along.....and then added a couple of word stickers to finish....
It's difficult to see in the pics, but in reality this is very shimmery as I sprayed the lot with gold mica spray, adding chunks of gold Perfect Pearls to the wet surface after I sprayed. Once the Perfect Pearls become wet, they become paint like in consistency, so dry to a nice shiny textured finish!
I'm linking up to the Frilly and Funkie Get Craft With Canvas Challenge with this project!
Love Trish xxxxx
