Heritage Photo Canvas
Welcome all you wonderful twiddlers.
You have just come from the wonderfully inspiring Jo Kinders blog I will endeavour to do the same.

I have put my favourite CD in the player "Adele 21" so I am ready to get to work typing up this blog post and TO SING. The kids have just yelled out to stop. BWAHAHAHA.
This is a canvas I have done for my mother.
The photo is at least 64yrs old.
Remarkably well preserved seeing as my grandmother
had it in a normal scrapbook stuck down with
It is also hand coloured. Mum was telling me the tutu
was actually pinned to the backdrop.
This was not long after the depression so the material was hard to
come by and I think it was just cheesecloth hand died by Nan.
The flourish that frames the photo is actually an MDF off the page piece from twiddlybitz called Ornamental stand code MDF05
I unfortuately was a bit ruff with mine putting it together and pulling it apart to paint and I broke off one of the swirls. So girls don't think it can't be revisited as something else than what it was designed for.
The piece is painted with Tim Holtz crackle paint spiced marmelade.
The twiddlybitz fern leaves are also crackle painted with old paper colour.
