A Fishy Canvas?

Today being Friday, it was my usual day to stream and Mandy suggested I should do a canvas with a photo of Amelia (my grand daughter, Mandy's daughter). So that's what I intended to do, however ...

My idea of a canvas, my uneducated idea, was nowhere near what I ended up creating.

O - M - G !!! How stinking awesome is this technique??? I had Darcie, Darcie's sister Johnna, and Eileen advising me of what I should do to create the canvas. Now I was happy to go along with whatever they suggested - even when at times I thought "What the ???", but I persisted, and oh I'm so glad I did. Those ladies did an amazing job instructing me on this canvas. For those of you who have been to a few of my streams where I'm being "instructed" on how to do something will know I don't really take instructions too well LOL, so theses three were unbelievably GOOD!

I just wish Mandy had suggested I take photos of the canvas at the various stages in the beginning. You would NOT believe where it all started from LOL. Anyway, here are some pics of what it eventually became (it's not quite finished yet though, I need to add a plaque above the photo, and tidy up the sides).

You can watch how the ladies & I created this canvas on my Ustream channel here.


  1. Jen - this canvas turned out AMAZING. I love it.

    1. Thanks Margo :)
      Couldn't have happened without all the help I got from Darcie, Johnna & Eileen and everyone in chat :)

  2. Well now that is fantastic especially seeing what you had when i logged on to the stream. Amazing Jen and group lolz you all contributed to a wonderful piece :)

    1. LOL Charley, I would never have imagined it could turn out as good as it did - before the spraying.
