leandra beads canvas page (mixed media monday "altered people"


I wanted to challenge myself to use some utee beads on a canvas page. The background for this is painted and dyed nappy liners, various fused chiffon and netting fabrics, burnt lace and stamped canvas painted tape. The image is one of my favourites from Paper Artsy...I just love their eccentric stamp range. The words on the image read "her minds eye sees everything" which I have repeated on the canvas tape For a final touch I have added some sparkly stones to complement the 3 utee beads that are hanging at the top by chiffon. If you want to have a go at altering a canvas book click on the badge to the right "I love fiber art" and that will take you to the C&T shop.
