Curtain Call #3

Hiya blog hoppers and friends alike, thanks for stopping by, and I'm glad you did as i have just managed to finish my piece for the third performance of the Object D'Art challenge,
This time round the alterable item is a canvas.
I had a few ickle ones that i picked up at ally pally this year, so i decided to cut some short lengths of a thickish garden wire and attach 4 canvases together by making small holes in each side of the canvas and inserting the wire to form bars between them.
Next i inked the edges of each with vintages photo and worn lipstick distress inks.
I stuck a couple of bits of old book pages to a couple of the pieces, and then just salvaged about in my draws {minds out the gutter please.. you know who you are lol} to find several ickle bits to assemble to create a finished piece.
Finally i stamped a few images here and there {all stamps by The Artistic Stamper} and it was complete. This was quite a quick make, but it was still fun all the same.
