Opulent canvas

Over on the Countryview crafts blog the theme for November is texture.
Recently, I was given a lot of trims, by an interior designer friend of mine. They are opulent and exciting....they reminded me of the style of the fabulous Lynne Perrella stamps by Paperartsy.

I began by grungepasting through a stencil onto the borders and sides of my canvas. Next, I painted with French Roast Fresco paint and finished with rubbing in some Treasure Gold.

Next, I got a piece of red felt and added some lace and ribbons to it with my felting machine, creating luscious layers and textures.

I stamped a Lynne Perrella lady using black archival and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I then coloured in my image and mounted onto some embossed gold card.
I played for ages arranging the trims and metal embellishments and added TH metal corners.
My dining room is red and this will go nicely in there....being a bit of a curiosity.

Here is some of the detailed texture.

I am entering this into the CVC challenge.

  2. Oh my word... opulent is just the word for this fabulous canvas, Hazel! Love the rich red fabric textures and the wonderful gilded stencilling - a perfect setting for one of Lynne's magnificent women. I love it! Thanks so much for playing along at Country View Challenges.
