I Wish

Linda set the challenge for October's aussiedares. The theme was 'I Wish'. I bought 4 canvasses for £4.99 from 'The Works' a few weeks ago and was inspired to use one for this. This is the first time I've joined in but hopefully it won't be the last. The canvasses are just slightly bigger than A4. I painted the background with Sunset Gold and Halo Blue gold Lumiere metallic acrylic paint by Jacquard. I used a crackle medium in places. I stamped the bird; from Tim's Urban Tapestry set; I also used the flowers from this set on 2 of the corners of the canvas. I added a few micro beads and some gold net. The words I printed off and transferred using a gel medium. Unfortunately as the surface wasn't very absorbent they haven't really melded onto the canvas, I didn't want to rub too hard after wetting the letters as I thought they may come off altogether, but I liked the look I was left with and just added some glitter and 3D gloss.
