The theme this fortnight is Texture and you can make anything as long as it's not a card, so the scope is endless! I love this theme because there are so many fantastic ways to incorporate texture into your work and I'm sure I'll learn a few more by the end of this challenge!
For my piece, I decided to make a canvas using a family picture (my beautiful daughter) as this is something I've wanted to do for ages. I've seen some amazing examples and have been inspired by people such as Finnabair, Trish Latimer and Michelle Webb to name but a few.
I'm not sure that the finished piece works that well (my Husband thinks it just showcases techniques and has had everything but the kitchen sink thrown at it!!) but what it does do is show a number of ways in which texture may be added to a project.
Here's what I made and I'd love to hear what you think: (I had to take these in very bright light so they may look a little bleached - sorry!)
I know this post is very 'picture' heavy but I wanted to try and show you as many of the elements as I could - not an easy task in this case! Will I make another canvas like this? Oh, I think so because I have a beautiful 4 year old Niece who would be an ideal candidate. . . . . .and I had fun making this despite some misgivings and I'm realising that's what it's all about!
