This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Documented - Patina Effect Canvas

Hello Everyone

I hope that you are all well.
We had some beautiful rain again last night, so this morning the air is crisp and clean.

I was inspired by Marta Lapkowska and a patina effect canvas that she created.
So I took the inspiration and created a canvas of my own.

I have some gorgeous Pentart products and so this is mainly what I used.
 I will list the products at the end.

I didn't just use paints, I also used some Pentart rust effects.  These added lovely, real rust patches.

I know the shape seems a little odd, but I will hang this up on the wall with a canvas string and then it will be perfect.

This canvas is called Document and it is meant to symbolise the documentation of my sisters life and how she has overcome health issues and has started living her life with energy and such determination.

I love how it turned out.
It took quite a bit of time and quite a few layers, but I am really pleased with it.
