Live In The Moment Reverse Canvas - The Dusty Attic

Hi everyone... I have another little reverse canvas to share with you all.  It's a simple little one using a Dusty Attic Crane and Mini Frame.  I've kept them very simply decorated because of the intense colours of the canvas.

The canvas was covered with ceramic stucco and coloured with Starburst Stains and Smooch Spritz.  Once dried the inside was flooded with crackle accents and left to dry for a few days.  It was a thick coating and took a few days, but I love the really thick cracks it created!

The crane was painted with white gesso and then coloured with Smooch Accent Inks.    The Mini Frame was coloured with River Mossy, Olive Vine and Ice Rink Smooch Spritz.

And have added some Authentique Diction Stickers.  These are so handy, I always find the perfect words from them.

Thanks for visiting, take care and
