Paper Dvizhnik #44 - A CANVAS. Don't die of shock:)

It's funny, I'm playing along a SECOND time in the same month at PAPER DVIZHNIK....blame it on Sandi T!!! Loved the look of this challenge - use black & white & 5 shades of the one colour....well, my shades are subtle, but they're all there. I figured using different mediums would give me different colours...so I went with that idea!

Here's my wee canvas - it measures 18x12cm:
I've got a pale apricot behind it all, then a yellow-ish apricot....the wire is a coppery orange, the pen around 'Wisemans Ferry' quite bright, the distress ink over the date banner is a honey-ish colour & the bird is covered in 'Smooch', which is a cheery orange.....then there is some scrunched up tissue paper ON the photo that is a slightly different shade again;)
Some closies:



I sanded the photo back quite hard, to get this effect & I was really happy with it! I just LOOOOVE crunching in autumn leaves - not that we have many here, because it's 'sub-tropical'...but up in the mountains behind us, where we went for a day trip...well, as you can see...I FOUND some leaves to crunch in!!!!
Thanks for looking, my scrappy friends ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥

  5. You're fearless with your approach to art Lizzy. I love that you tackle anything at all and give it your own special twist. I've yet to try a canvas although I have one sulking in the corner of my scrap room, just begging to be used :D

  10. So inspirational Lizzy. Just beautiful. I would love to one day really get messy in a mixed media project but I just can't seem to get going. I will persevere with my scrapbook layouts until I get there!

  11. 5 shades of orange? I would never have thought of that! Only the famous Lizzy-who-thinks-outside-the-square could think of that one! Go you!
