title: this is me
this is an altered art project that i did for the monthly challange.
this is the first time i tried altering a canvass and it's a lot of fun!
i used the wire mesh to create texture for my canvass. i laid it on the canvass, brushed acrylic paint at random, then i removed it before it dried. as for the "me" on the title, i painted it with acrylic paint, poured glitter over it then poured diamond glaze after.
materials used: canvass; patterned paper - urban lily; acrylic paint - making memories; wire mesh; paper flowers - prima; transparency - rusty pickle; letter sticker - making memories; chipboard - basic grey, fancy pants; diamond glaze; bling; stamp - hero arts; ink - stazon; glitter
