Vintage reverse canvas

Hello Everybody,

Today’s project has been inspired by Louise’s reverse canvas from Telford. I couldn’t make a canvas but I loved it so here is my take on it.


I have used beautiful papers from 13arts collection- summer raphsody.

I used wooden square and after a coat of white gesso I decided to use the back of it with two windows…

I filled the two windows with papers. I added texture to frame by dubbing texture paste on to it with a back of my pallet knife .

When dry, added some colour using a powder from fabrika decoru
I also use 13art stencil to add some texture to my windows panels.

I used handcasted resins from prima moulds and coloured them with gold metallic paint from Fabrika decoru. I also used mdf frames from the same company and covered them with white gesso.


I started building my composition in the middle. I used some cardboard to balance resins and mdf to create an even surface.


I stained the edges of my papers elements with distress oxide, and also distress the frame with the same vintage photo oxides ..


I added some gauze, sisal and lace to my composition, finally I splatter the project with white gesso and added a sentiment.

Hope you like my project …
I do love mixing all materials and enjoying creating something unique. The best things is I can get all those product in one shop.
Have a great week and keep crafting…
