Challenge No 2 is up at SIL and an Altered Canvas for Yuzz (*updated*)

Wanna win this?  This is such a yummy RAK yes? Just check out the ongoing challenges at SIL (Scrap-It-Lah) this month?  SIL is also having its first-ever DT call - for more details,  hop over here.

Foraging into my artsy adventure,  I have decided to make a little gift for Yuzz.  She has emailed me a couple of weeks ago and told me that she made an album for me.  She is just too sweet.  We managed to meet up today briefly and exchenged our gifts.  :)  This is a simple canvas which I made for her:

Well,  Sharon Chan - you asked for a grunge feel - here it is babe.  The grunge was using done using embossing ink and guess what - dragging my nails across to give it those lines.   I love the whole effect of the canvas.

I have used some regular alpha stencils which I bought at the hardware shop and just painted the alphas using white acrylic paint.

Heart heart my Unity stamps - they are so useful.  I mucked up the stamped sentiments a bit.  It was quite hard to stamp clearly on canvas.  One has to be so careful.  Well - thats my signature - imperfections abound in my layouts.  :)

Have a great day and I hope to be back with more projects soon.
