Inspiration with Trudi Harrison

Reverse Canvas - "Enjoy The Journey"

Hi Everyone!

Trudi with you today sharing some more 2Crafty loveliness.  I am really enjoying altering canvases at the moment. They are a great way of adding your own personal unique touch for home decor.  Hang them on a wall or display on a picture plate holder. They also make a lovely gift for someone special.
I created this one as a reverse canvas, I just love the shadow box appeal created when you turn the canvas over.  A pretty dimensional scene has been created with 2Crafty Chipboard, a few fussy cut elements and blooms.

A touch of nature was added with a few twigs collected from the garden with a small birds nest  affixed in place with Mini Branches wrapped around the outer nest edge.
A feather from the Soft Feather Set was altered with texture paste, white paint and water colour.

A Tiny Henri Frame sits in the nest with the Journey word sentiment (from 
Enjoy the Journey Word) adhered over the top.

For my next project, I have a little 'post' Halloween fun to share:  
"Frightfully Delightful"

The smaller frame from the Square Leafy Frame Set has been inked black with 
metallic gold paint randomly dabbed over the top.

Frame Celia's Flourish accents the photo edge with fussy cut elements layered over the top.

The  Frightfully Delightful  word title was perfect for my 'little witch' in the photo.

Celia's Frame and word elements were inked black for contrast.
