Escape canvas (arty mum group) Tuesday Taggers challenge



I have been taking part in the workshops in the Artistic Mother book written by Shona Cole and this week I have painted a canvas. We had a lovely time at Oglet on the Mersey Estuary last weekend and I took loads of photos of my sons climbing on the sandstone rocks which have the most amazing texture and colours. I have transferred this altered distressed photo of my husband and sons onto a painted canvas and have added some stamping, string, wax and papers. The challenge over at Tuesday Taggers this week is canvas and someone will win some sprays from Art from the heart who are sponsoring this weeks challenge..so go check out all the other entries.
