A Little Boy A Little Canvas

Hi everyone. Brrrr aren't the mornings chilly now! I have finally finished working full time for Sue (hope Canada was fabo hun) and I am back to my regular stuff (YAY!!) with time to blog (FINALLY!). I have my final DT project for May for M2A I can finally share - it's a little 4 x 4 inch canvas I did of my son. I originally made it for my desk, but I am now considering adding it to a page with a larger photo to go with it...hmmmm.... will post pics if I decide to go that way.
I took this photo of my son climbing up a ladder towards me whilst I stood at the top of a platform...I loved the effect!
I coated the canvas roughly with an olive coloured acrylic paint, ripped up an old book for the background paper, and pulled a piece of gauze to shreds to lay over the top of the paper. I mounted the photo (which I attacked with an edge distresser and brown distress ink) onto a chipboard square that I had painted around the edge with tim holtz picket fence distress crackle paint. I tucked an olive green38mm flower in the corner with a chipboard heart (coated with black magic glimmer mist) behind the photo mat before mounting.
Along the bottom of the canvas I have used a basic grey bling it topiary tree, a scrapware vine (coated with tim holtz crackle paint, then random inked with black and brown distress ink), a scrapware house (very maltreated with distress ink, gold embossing ink and distress inks LOL), some My2Angels Explore Loud Messy ribbon (inked with distress ink) and finally a lovely My2Angels large key charm.
Materials used:
misc: 4x4 inch canvas, acrylic paints, gauze, a page from an old book, inks. 
I love working with mini canvases, they are so much fun...and you can throw as much or as little on it as you like.
Thanks for stopping by!
