My very first Canvas

I can now post a pic of the very first canvas i made knowing it is now in the safe hands of my dear friend Ann.
Inspired by Tim Holtz and the pieces he creates i though i would give it a go, i have used a mixture of gaming pieces and bottletops to create the wording and just inked the canvas with a vintage photo distress ink and dabber for added depth. Tearing an old bit of news paper and using Old Paper Distress ink to age it, added another element to the piece, i also used a Tim Holtz Stamp and finished with an old key and an UTEE jigsaw piece.

I am really chuffed with how this piece came out.
