I had such a good time making the last altered canvas, I decided to have a repeat, with some changes: This one is larger, and I used a bunch of different stuff!
I started by painting the frame and sides of the canvas in 2 shades of green and a rub of brown. Then I busted out the silver leaf and glued it over the frame and sealed it. After it dried I used brown and black paint, brushing it on over the silver and then rubbing it off until I go the vintage look I was going for.
The picture is one taken at my wedding of me and my husband. I altered it a bit so it would look older. Then I covered some chipboard swirls with paper, layered everything up and finished it up with a Hambly overlay, some ribbon, and a metal plate.
I have been looking for a way to use our wedding photos in an artful manner. I think this fit the bill nicely.
The first photo I used the flash to take it.... in order to highlight the silver overlay.
This view was using the ambient light, I think the 3-d-edness shows up better.
Thanks for checking it out!
