I've always loved looking at what Alison of Words and Pictures creates and will always aspire to make something half as good (believe me - half as good would make me happy!) When I saw Alison's reverse canvas this week for Paper Artsy I just loved the colour combination she used.
Now, I didn't have the Fresco colours she had so went for the next best thing (so I thought!) Cobalt Blue and Guacomole. I used a small canvas I'd had sitting on top of my shelf for a while and tried as far as I could to follow Alison's method. One thing I couldn't resist was trying my new crackle paste mixed with a little guacamole. I decide to use LPCO13 (the Hot Picks one has gone on to my never-ending list of "needs")stamped in grey but - alas and alack - the paint combo doesn't show through (another two colours for my list ha! ha!)So, ploughing on, don't have many metal embellishments (they are already on list!)so did the best I could with flowers and brads.
The flowers are just from my huge collection! Must use them more - there are loads - something with GD maybe?
Thanks so much for the inspiration Alison - I would never have thought of reversing the canvas by myself!!

Thanks for looking, off to the land of little or no connections so apologies now - comments on blogs may be very brief this week!
