Performance Three....

This week the theatre is buzzing with the news that we have a special guest performer!
May I present Karen from Scrapz!
She is the first of our guest performers, and her theatrical skills are wonderful, and very creative. So pull up your seat, get comfortable, put that bag of sweeties down, stop rustling your programme, and get out your canvases for this weeks theatrical performance!
Here is Karen's wonderful interpretation of our third performance
Oops , what are you doing here Winnie? This is what Karen used to make this creative box canvas
Canvas Front
Canvas Front and Back
Canvas Back
Canvas inside
Canvas Clasp
This is what Karen used to make her creation:
For the box canvas I used acrylic paints, watercolours, rubber stamps, embossing powder, Tim Holtz Crackle paint, hinges and a few beads for the clasp. And of course the 2 cheap winnie the pooh canvases that came from a £1 shop so were only £1 each!
Thank you Karen for the wonderful Performance, and I know you will be back later this week with more....

So create anything you like with a canvas, small large , square, oblong, or even round if you have one! Paint it, embellish it, destroy it, just generally create a piece of loving art, and then show us your creation on your blog or photo site. Don't forget to link the theatre of dreams to your blog, and of course post a comment!
Happy Creating!
