"Curtain Call," Altered Canvas Holiday Gift
"Curtain Call" is no exception. Here you see an altered canvas with pictures of my husband's parents. My husband followed in his father's footsteps becoming a cameraman and I know my husband will flip when he see this canvas...his holiday gift! "Yes," paste was used to adhere the paper to the canvas and 450 Quick Dry Adhesive was used to glue the Tim Holtz film and canister lid down.
Following this altered canvas, I worked on a wonderful wood cigar box, which is a tribute to early film actress Clara Bow. For the first time I used Mod Podge to adhere the paper pieces to the wooden box. It worked nicely brushed on with a sponge brush. My husband drilled the hole for the Tim Holtz pull and I stained the wood balls (one side is flat) and glued these onto the box bottom with E-6000. I look forward to working with these and more Graphic 45 pages in the future.
