PaperArtsy Challenge, Canvas by Helen Chilton

Hello crafters and welcome.
Over on PaperArtsy blog Helen Chilton made lovely canvas, I was inspired by her then I followed and I played along with her project. Her wonderful canvas which you can see here.

I followed to her the all techniques with my board. I used the three colours Archival Inks onto the tissue paper. then used Satin Glaze to stick it to grey white board.

 I then knocked it back with a wash of Nougat fresco.

 And then sprayed  South Pacific, Pumpkin Soup and Eggplant fresco with mini bottle.--I haven't any Dylusions sprays---I have to...

I then painted Nougat with water onto the board and rubbed at it with an old towel as she did. I was a little broken why I rubbed too strong. But It was really fun to make the background.

I stamped Darcy's collection onto tissue paper and painted, then used Satin Glaze to stick it to the background. I used EM05 and EDY05 Darcy's stamps.
I then used Grunge Paste with Bora Bora fresco and Lin Brown stencil ELB001.
Finally I used Llynne Perrella script LPC028 and Mini18 to background, and some Treasure Gold. 
I really like Helen's project, she is a artist, I feel she loves all object and fabulous colours. Thank you for sharing us and I'm looking forward to your project.

Thank you so much for stopping by and see you soon....
