Altered Canvas

I seem to have lots of pieces lying around with just backgrounds on them which have been left over from some of the background videos. The Decopatch 12 x 12cm square canvas pictured below was used in the Distressed wall video and I decided to cut a hole in it and place a few curio’s inside along with wooden battens and a little rusted chicken wire!….Hey…. I get bored easily ok!!

I also masked of an area with some card before blending Brushed Corduroy Distress ink around it to give the appearance that a picture had once hung there.
I then stamped and added some Decoart perfect crackle in a couple of areas to add to the overall effect.
