Making the old new again

Standard

This is leaving it to the last minute I tell you! !!  I created this for the challenge over on Limor Webber’s FB group.   She challenged us to follow the color challenge over on Lindy’s Stamp Gang blog.   This was an old canvas I’d purchased a few years ago and didn’t like it anymore.   I Gesso’d over it and covered the entire thing in lace and then added a layer of Gesso over the lace.   I used a few different colors of Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays:  Cheshire Cat Cherry,  T-bird Turquoise, Brushed Nickle, Toto’s Tornado Black.   Some Dusty Attic honey comb cupboard,  some Prima trinkets, butterfly and flowers,  some I Am Roses flowers.   I had fun putting this together.   Here’s what it looks like!

Thanks for popping in. ….I always appreciate it!

Hugs,

About mycraftingtherapyroom

My name is Yvonne Gebauer and I'm a cardmaker and have just entered the amazing world of Mixed Media and am LOVING it!. I'm a wife, a mother to two grown boys, and a grandmother to 5 amazingly beautiful grandchildren which I have to say is really all it's cracked up to be and more. I work full time and am really starting to think that work is getting in the way of life!! I have a large crafting room and I'm my happiest when I have a group of friends get together in this room and just have a blast. Every once in a while we actually create something! Or, when I get a chance to have one of my grandchildren over to just let them play and create what they want with what I have in my stash.....which is allot. My craft room is my therapy room of sorts. My place to go and just be......

  1. LOVE! Gorgeous colors, but what intrigues me the most is that you covered the canvas in lace and then gessoed over it! I never would have thought to do that, you are so darn creative my friend! waving hi from the hills of North Carolina ♥

  2. Love this.. The lace idea is a great one… but you do great things with lace, and are the Lace Queen, that I know.!! Love this work of art.. Have fun at the Retreat and hope you don’t freeze. I hear the weather did not really cooperate….

I love hearing from you!!
