Frida Kahlo Inspired Canvas

Hi everyone!

We've started doing monthly challenges over at Gauche Alchemy and the inspiration this month is Frida Kahlo.

I used a 5x5 canvas from a store's kids craft section, seriously, I know I say this a lot but that's the BEST place for smaller and wayyyyyyy cheap canvases. lol




I first collaged on some torn book pages, then painted over that with Art Anthology Sorbet. I also added some crackle accents. The quote was written on a simple journaling card and I got out my collection of Stickles for this one. lol I've missed using them! I added the Stickles to both the card and the cut out fabric skulls. And of course finished off the edges with washi tape. :)


I thought this quote was both witty and sad, but found it inspiring as well!

Thanks for looking and I hope you can play along!
