Vintage canvas by Titbelsoeur

Salut les Patouilleuses, c'est Titbelsoeur qui vous parle !

I do not often make canvas like the one I am showing you today... I tried to get out of my comfort zone with colors and style I am not used to... YOU will tell me whether it was a good idea !
I am sorry I forgot to take step by step pictures, I always start taking some, then I add this and that, and at the end I realize I have not taken other pics ! 
Anyway, I will try to explain a bit the way I made it, not really difficult actually...

I first glued some thin tissue on the canvas to make texture, gessoed it and added some paint with my fingers. I darkened a book page I had first folded here and there and wiped my gessoed fingers on to, with Vintage photo Distress ink on a piece of cut n'dry (not sure my explanation is really clear ?).

From the  A Stitch in Time plate, I stamped the thread card on kraft paper and the tape measure on drawing paper :

And this Gibson Girl I love so much on drawing paper as well, edges distressed :

I then glued lace, buttons and flowers among other stuff, and tadaaaaam, here it is :

Sooo boyz'n'gals, I hope you like my canvas,

thanks for stopping by, 

I am looking forward to reading your comments! 

A la prochaine !
