This month's focus at Unruly Paper Arts blogozine is Canvassing. There are two Reader Art Quests this month. RAQ2 is Textured Canvas. You have until October 25 to submit before the voting starts.
At the Unruly Paper Arts Yahoo Group, I'm participating in the Eerie Halloween ATC swap. This is my fourth and final ATC that will be sent off to be swapped.
I was fascinated by my fellow Unruly Columnist Brenda Brown's example of textured canvas. I couldn't wait to try the technique and decided to make a textured canvas ATC for the swap.
I painted everything a mixture of gesso and black paint. I've lightened it up so that you can see the texture.
This is what I started with before I painted it:
gauze and misc. trims from my stash
felt spider from a collection of stickers that have long since lost their name
fussy cut image from a sheet I've had in my Halloween collection forever--it says Ramay's Hand-I-Works.
fence created with Martha Stewart punch
strip of text from an old Edgar Allan Poe book (love the word delirium--which is the state I'm in around spiders!)
