back alley

I altered this canvas using stencils from my stash. I used gesso then mixed black and white acrylic paint to achieve a charcoal/grey colour. I added some mica powder to some painted areas when wet. I decorated with chipboard frame , cat and top right border. The lamp post was resin piece purchased from the Trinket parlour. The hat (resin) from my own stash. The light. scroll corner piece. dress and star were made with air dry clay using molds. My daughter said it was an "old fashioned back alley" canvas.
