Smeared and Smudged Blog Hop

Hello lovelies,

Can you believe it is April already?????!!!!????? I can't time sure is going quickly! It is time for another Smeard and Smudged Blog hop. I could not wait to participate in this hop! I was so excited to use my new Smeared Ink stamp sets! The one chosen for this project is Elementals!!! That stamp set is awesome!!!

I chose to alter a canvas for this project. I took a 8 x 10 canvas and painted it dark gray, then took the image that I had blown up** and attached it to the canvas. Painted it in different shades of gray and then added some gesso to the canvas and dry brushed in shades of gray. I added the origial size image colored with copics to the corner.

I hope you enjoy this hop and don't forget to go see the other projects, there are some awesome ladies in this group and I am proud of everything that they do! If you wanna know more you should hop on over to the ning group Smeared and Smudged
