I have only just started playing with working on canvas. This was my first solo attempt. I really was not sure what I was doing but I actually love the result. I started out with a text paper background. I have done several layers to add a little dimension. Then I discovered the Tim Holtz Umbrella Man die. I wanted to create the feeling of being the one in the crowd that stands out.
I have used the Viva Precious Metal Turquoise all over the canvas in different thicknesses. I then used the Viva Croco Crackling Colour - Transparent over the top.
The variation to the crackle is so much fun to play with. It looks great as a background or even over the top as I have done it here. It was exactly the effect that I was looking for on this canvas.
Thanks for stopping by.
