Altered canvas

This was a blank canvas I have had sitting around for ages. I bought some beeswax the other week and thought I would give it a go.

The canvas was originally brown, so covered it with gesso using bubble wrap to add some texture and then some distress ink.

Sprayed on some glimmer mist using some mesh and then stamped a pattern all over the background. Used the Paperartsy castle stamps onto tissue paper and used the wax to stick them on. Had the sewing machine out so sewed on some material and ribbon and lace along one edge. Cut out some paper flowers and stamped over the top of them along with a couple of fabric flowers.

Finally stamped the shield onto metal, embossed it and added highlights with alcohol ink.
