Altered Surfaces

I highly recommend two books that are published by Design Originals. Altered Surfaces and Transfers and Altered Images both by Chris Cozen. She's a working artist representing Golden Art Products.

Both books are packed full with easy to follow instructions and plenty of inspiration.

So I decided to give it a try...using a tiny canvas. After the background colors were added and dry, I added the image with bees wax.

I think I will leave this tiny canvas just as it is!

The tiny tin bird was a surprise from my friend in Japan. Thanks Minori!

This canvas piece is my favorite.

When I found the sentiment in my stash....I thought it would be fun to add a metal number 2.....just for grins.

This is my second favorite canvas.

They all turned out great but the bird is my favorite. Of course I wouldn't turn any of them away.
