The Art of the Month swap has started again for this year. This time I was to make something for Kasha. This little hanging canvas is about the size of an ATC. The vintage picture has a stamped acetate overlay sewn over top then glued to some phone book paper. The canvas has been painted with orange, rust and gold paints then stamped. The lovely tassle trim was a gift from another friend, Margaret and finally some rusty bent wire attached to the top completed my project.
Here is the canvas I made for Gaye's birthday. Each of us in the group had a different shape and size canvas to make with the colours to be green, blue and rust. The theme was up to us, but something each of us is known for and in vintage style. Included in the canvas is some wire, beads, rusted paper, painted lace, resin coated vintage music paper and an antique typewriter key as well as little words that I often like to add.
