Sharing something from the archives today and one of my favorite canvas creations from years ago.
I wanted to try and create an old vintage background to display this Paper Whimsy image, one that had antique laces but also texture. Perhaps, something that resembled worn leather or an old cabinet card album. I made this using two separate layers. The background is a 8 x 10 canvas which was layered with various shades of brown, black and copper paints over the antique laces. The center is a chipboard album cover that I attached the Paper Whimsy image. Since I was going for that old “attic” feel, the rusty key was a must have. I think she feels right at home here…even if “winter” is a few months away still. :)
