My first love is altered art...


Travel-canvas

Even though I dabble in a variety of projects, my first love is altered art. There's something magical about taking an ordinary item and giving it a "makeover". Check out my cute little "scene" on a canvas! :)


Plain old wrapping tissue + light modeling paste + gold glaze = wallpaper.
Lightbulb casing + gesso + gold paint = vase
Toy + sponge + lace + gesso + paint = pouffe


Starbucks bottle cap + gesso + texture medium + paint  + patterned paper = frame for map paper 
Old mirror from travel kit + MT tape + lace + paint = framed mirror
Old jewellery + gold paint + vintage buttons + pearls = chandelier


This mixed media canvas was done for LESSology Challenge #40: Travelogue
