Faces

Hi you all, good morning from cold and frosty Rhineland - but at least there is no snow today.
I have an altered canvas to share today. It has been roughed up with structure paste and painted with gold metallic acrylics. I distressed it with some timber brown Stazon. The 'photo' has been stamped onto cream high gloss paper using a stamp from Scrollswork. The small pictures on the left side are images from CI, cut so that they fitted the tiny metal frames, and mounted onto inchies made from scraps of painted and stamped paper. The flower and leaves are from Prima.



I am linking to Out of a Hat challenges, where the theme this week is faces, and to Pan Pastels Challenge, anything goes.

Have a good Easter Sunday, don't eat too much chocolate - I'm just envious because I have no choccie in the house - and thanks a lot for visiting!
