A canvas made with a phone made selfie of my daughter and me.

Waiting for the carnaval parade, we got a little bored and made this selfie, which was too cute to waste, so I made this canvas with it. Love how it turned out.
I started by gessoing and then put crackle medium on the edges followed by some peach coloured acrylic paint. That gave such a pretty fine crackle effect. I then stamped with a script background stamp and Distress Ink Frayed Burlap. Next I took a sheet of Prima designer paper, roughly distressed the edges and glued that down on the canvas. I cut strips from some leftovers of the same Prima papers Delight and glued them down.
Then I sprayed some Lindy's Stamp Gang starburst spray Wild Honeysuckle Coral on the paper and used a TCW stencil reversed chicken wire with some texture paste I coloured with a brown acrylic paint. I then splashed some sepia coloured Ecoline on with a brush.
When putting the picture down on the canvas I decided black and white was too harsh, so I used a beige Copic marker to soften it up. It gave a slight vintage look to the picture which I really liked. Then I lightly distressed the picture. After gluing it down I added metal photo corners on two edges of the picture.
All the wooden embelishments are also by Prima; I distressed the edges with Walnut Stain Distress ink to make them stand out more. The light pink and beige flowers are all by Wild Orchid and the peach flowers I made by layering more flower and adding a WOC flower in the center. The metal embelishments I've had for a while, and I have no idea where I bought them anymore.
I do hope you like my canvas, and maybe give you some inspiration. Have a great week, hugs Frea
