Hi guys! So I was inspired by Valentine’s Day to create this mixed media altered canvas piece. I used a couple keys tied to twine as a bit of a found object touch to it. This is my first time creating an altered canvas work of art, and I really enjoyed it! I like using the scrapbook paper, pearls, and found objects all together, as well as fabrics like ribbon and lace. I also enjoyed not being restricted to the surface of the canvas, adding some dangling keys to make the whole thing a 3-d structure instead of an image.
It was also my first time playing with crackle paste, and I had a lot of fun with it! I went back over the dried paste with soft pastels to add a touch of colour, and even used a pink gelato stick to add a few dots.
The finished canvas:
So thanks so much for watching, and leave a comment below how you think it turned out!
