Canvas


My only New Year Resolution was to use the canvases that I seem to keep buying to use 'one day'. Well that day has arrived , and lucky for me that Sweetpea on CCSwaps is hosting a NYR swap.

Here is what I did for Pauline. Hope she likes it. The little girl is my mother in law, who would have been 94 this year. No one knows where 'Molly' came from, as her given name was Elizabeth, but she was never known as anything but Molly.
The background is a mixture of several sprays, Sticky Fingers and Aileen's Colour Mists, stamped with a Hero Arts Italian Poetry stamp. I coated the photograph with melted wax. The flower was coloured with alcohol inks, and the lace with Distress Ink.
