Altered Canvas

I am so excited to share my creation with you today.
I have made an altered canvas!


I have been playing around with some different shrink films from Grafix Arts.


I had this image of doing a tree and having different charms dangling off of it.


The tree is cut from my Cricut.  I colored it with permanent markers before I baked it. 


For all my charms, I scanned some of the Uncommon Noteables and printed them on to the Ink Jet Shrink film.


Although the color is not exactly the same as the real Authentique Paper colors, I liked how they look slightly antique.


I am still playing around with the coloring since the colors get more intense as the shrink film bakes.


To finish the canvas, I added lots of dangling glass beads and things.


This was so much fun to make, I loved the entire process.


I would love to hear what you think.


Well, that is it for me today.  I hope you have enjoyed my altered canvas.
This has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana with today's post.
