Hi! Today I am sharing a canvas I made for Sin City Stamps.
Our sponsor this month is Cottonwood Arts.
I used one of their 6 x6 canvas's to make my project.
I made an altered canvas.

Supplies Used:
Sin City Stamps: Hoot Owls by Michelle
Cottonwood Arts - 6x6 canvas

gingham paper, white gesso, burlap,twine and mod podge.
I also used two stencils and glossy accents (for the eyes)
I also used copic markers to colour the owls.

I painted gesso on the blank canvas.
I then tore the gingham into strips then started layering them on the canvas.
I used mod podge to adhere the strips to the canvas.

(I did stamp some snowflakes on the strips.. this was an afterthought)

This picture shows the mod podge  (which will dry clear)
and the layers.

I stamped the owls three times each and then cut into pieces.

I coloured the owls and branch with copics.
I added glossy accents to the eyes.

I added burlap and twine...

I also used white gesso and stencils on the corners to add detail.
The Hoo's are hand written.. 
I was thinking of Christmas...
