Faith's Canvas

I bought a couple of canvases several years ago and never did anything with them so this week while we have Faith I let her decorate one while I did the other.
I did the initial preparation for her by painting it a couple of times with a pale green tester pot of emulsion paint and leaving it to dry overnight.

Apart from help in holding the flower and heart stencils in place and glueing the ribbon around the edges it is all her own work. I think she has done a very good job of it.

She has used a few stencils with Brilliance inks and painted designs with a shimmery paint. Then she got a bit carried away with the glitter glue although it did come in handy to help disguise the part where a stamped flourish didn't quite work.
Fabric and paper flowers were held together with brads and glued into place. The raised cream colored spots are Pebeo gloss touch paint.

She inked round the edges as she has seen me do with a finger dauber dabbed onto the inkpad.

She is going to take it home with her to give to her Mum.
