The Mirror Crack'd...Canvas challenge

I'm very excited to announce I have been lucky enough to join the design team for the fabulous Mixed Media challenge site The Mirror Crack’d.  Thank you to the girls for making me so welcome, it's going to be so much fun.  I have jumped in with both feet and am hosting this months challenge and the theme is ‘canvas’.  I used a sticky back canvas sheet as the base for a journal page.
I started by applying cracked texture paste through a sequin waste stencil and also some plaster fabric (modroc). Once this was dry I coloured with Gellatos, blending with a damp baby wipe.  The final background layer was some stamping - dots and crackles.
The cute owl is stamped on patterned paper and paper pieced, I coloured a few details with inktense pencils and added some glossy accents. A little banner across the corner and the stamped quote finished off the page.

The winner of this months challenge will be invited to join the team for a guest design slot - I really hope you share your canvas creations with us...Happy Crafting...Esther xx
