a canvas and altered box

Hello everyone!

Hope you all enjoyed your Easter weekend?
Today I have a canvas and altered box to share with you
using Imaginarium Designs chipboard.

First of all this canvas:

The frame got a coat of gesso and the little birds were painted with glimmer glaze.

The heart shape got the same treatment with gesso and glimmer glaze.

Some of the cogs got a layer of gesso and glimmer glaze and others got an extra layer of silver paint.

This title only got a coat of gesso because I wanted it to blend it into the background.

Chipboard used:
Photo Frame 1 (with birds) IDFR0002

Cross Hatch with centre heart IDDL0004

9 Cogs on board IDT0004

Precious Moments IDP0063

Other products used:
Pion Design papers - Alma's Sewing Room collection
Glimmer glaze - Tattered Angels
Prima flowers
Silver paint
Small beads

My other project is an altered box:
All the chipboard was painted with gesso using a small sponge.

The borders were cut in half.

Cut the flourish in half.

Chipboard used:

Silver Fern Leaf in board IDFL0015

Flourish 1 and variations IDT0003

Four circles border IDB0003

Other Products used:
Pion Design papers
Prima flowers

Hope you all enjoyed today's post.
Till next time!
