Oh No!

I have wanted to post this canvas but made it for a one for one swap that I did with my friend Mary Schweitzer (greenwomandesign) but I did not want to show it off and ruin the surprise for her. Well I finally got it in the mail and she just emailed me that she received it! It is 6" x 12". I did the texture with spackle that I had mixed with laytex paint then when it had set up a little I stamped into it. I also used rub on metallic on it but they did not show up too good in the picture : / I call it "Oh No"




Go check Mary’s blog to and see the lovely Fairy Shrine I received. The pictures are good but in no way show how beautiful it really is.

OMG this is gorgeous, Inka. WOW I'm so impressed with all that you do.

Wow, I second Carolyn. This is definitely gorgeous. I love that you used spackle and stamped into it. I do that with caulk and wallboard joint compound a lot in my own art. Mary is a very luck lady right now. And so are you, for getting her beautiful art. Aren't swaps great?

What a great canvas Inka. The color, texture, and embellishments are stunning. Mary is lucky to swap with you - and I'm sure the shrine is beautiful!!
