there's always room for improvement...
We are always getting wonderful goodies in at Fred the Needle and recently we got in some simple, plain canvases with floral heart wreaths on them...pretty enough but we felt it needed just a little filling in and soooo I had a play and added music sheet scrap, masking with Tattered Angels Glimmer Sheets and texture paste, I also added a little crackle paint and toned the colour with acrylic paint. The lovely lace trim at the bottom was the final touch and has really transferred a pretty piece into a beautiful shabby chic example.
Oh yeah I just had to sneak in a little sparkle with Kindy Glitz.
So bare in mind that this began as a simple white canvas with the floral heart the only thing on it...look beyond what things are and see what they can be :)
