Recycled Mini Canvases - For The Altered Element

Here is another little Recycle project I made for The Altered Element.
A while back I couldnt get enough of mini canvases and decorated a whole lot of them, but not all turn out the way you want, but I kept them nevertheless. And these came in handy for this project.
I used the back of one canvas and from another one I used just the wooden frame, glued on top. That makes a nice little deep frame, ideal to hold little bottles, ornaments or other small objects.

I textured the whole thing with Viva Decor Terra Paste and then painted it over in cream when it was dry. I then rubbed some greenish gold paste, also by Viva Decor, over the top, just using my fingers.
The bottle has been filled with sand from a recent holidays and the twigs and died brown leaves also came from my holiday.
As for the flowers I used Maya Road metal flowers and treated them with Crafty Notions Rusting Powder.

So if you ever have any little (or bigger) canvases lying around, put them to good use and make a deep frame. The texture paste hides the canvas and imperfections of the frames perfectly.
Happy crafting!
