Craft All Day - Altered Canvas DT project

Hello my dears,  Yeah!!! it's Friday!!!  Another weekend looms ahead.  I've had such fun today playing in my craft room and creating something a little different for my DT project to post at

The majority of my ingredients came from Sarah's lovely on line store.  She has some gorgeous goodies to suit everyone from sizzix dies' to Magnolia stamps and beautiful furniture.  You really should pop over and take a peek.

I started out with a plain white canvas that I bought with the intention of altering.  Painted it with white acrylic paint then I chose some of Sarah's 6x6 paper variety packs. I ripped and distressed the black paper and used my EK Swiss cheese punch on the blue paper before mounting it onto white distressed card.

The little blue dots on the right of the canvas are the punched out pieces from the blue paper.  I have put a picture block at the bottom of my post to show the items used from Craft All Day.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead of you. I'm off to another all day crop tomorrow which I know is going to be such fun.

Hugs to you all  x
