Altered Canvas using Prima Romance Novel

This time for my Design Team Project I used the Prima Romance Novel line. And wanted to do an Altered Canvas using my Grandmother's baby picture from 1906. Wasn't she the cutest baby ever ?  What a treasure this picture is to have. MyAunt Peggy gave  it to me. I just love this photo and wanted a way to display it on my wall. I never use original photos, ever.  So, I printed this out and tore the edges for the worn look. And then used Distress ink around the edges and crackle painted in spots. So then I started on this canvas. Using Gesso I painted the whole canvas. First , I used a mask with medium molding paste. Sprinkled with some glitter, and then let the molding paste dry...then the fun begins. Cutting out all the little papers from the Romance Novel 6 X 6 pad and inking.

 When the molding paste is dried and I have some paper glued onto the canvas I started spraying different colors of spray to get the desired look I wanted with the same mask. Then started layering all my papers around the photo. Spraying the flowers with the pink mist and letting them air dry....Not in a hurry because I wanted to work on the photo. I just kept adding piece by piece until I got the desired look I was looking for. I do think that this collection was just perfect for this photo. My Grammy was one of the most special people ever. Hope you like my new creation of some of my vintage heritage. When I see this hanging on my wall I will smile every time!!
