Off the Page with Donna!

Hi everyone, Donna here to host the blog for you. Today I am sharing an altered canvas I created. Not sure if I am going to use it as a cover for a mini album, or actually adhere to the cover of  a 12x12 album.

The first thing I did was cover the canvas that I had from an older Club Q kit, with a thin coat of Gesso, I also put another layout of Gesso on it using a stone template, but in the end it doesn't show up that well, but does give it more texture, especially after I coated it with Quick Quotes Powderpuff Inks. I having been experimenting with my new love, UTEE, and will show you examples of what I came up with for this project.

Here is the finished project:
For the hearts, I've inked them with Powderpuff inks and then applied a coated of homemade mists. Around the end I made a mixture of UTEE and Perfect Pearls.  A funny thing happened when I put my heat tool on it, it didn't really melt smoothly, but rather made little clumps. I am guessing that was because of the Gesso, but whatever the reason -- I really love the look.

I also put UTEE on every single letter, what a task that was, but I wanted to show you how it changes the paper. Pretty cool huh?
I hope I gave you some inspiration to go and experiment with different mediums. It really is a lot of fun, and if you mess up, just try again! You never know what you can come up.
