Heritage canvas

I'm getting ready to leave early in the morning for CHA in Chicago. I wanted to finish one more project before I started packing, so I made this canvas this afternoon. I chose a picture of my maternal grandmother (on the right) and her sister. I think this was taken around 1925, not exactly sure when. I love the serious expressions, the round glasses, and the beauty in their young faces.

I sprayed the background with walnut gold and starfish glimmer mist. I used the large flourish screen and then used coffee shop over the screen. I matted the photo, and used two corner pieces from the Creme de chocolate regal chips. Then I layered the corresponding glimmer glass corners on top of the chips. I distressed the key before attaching it with fibers. I used the flourish glimmer glass, added some lace and pearl strings around the border. Then I sprayed the flowers with walnut gold and attached them to the corner.

Hope to see you in Chicago! Have a great day!
