Special Someone Canvas - From Hunter to Abi

Someone Special Canvas

Howdy, Howdy... How have you all been?
Today, I'm here to share with you a sister project to a layout that I did some months ago for Hunter (Little Mate).. This time though, it is a canvas using the same paper range and of course the awesome Memory Maze chipboard.. The photo features Hunter and his favourite Junior Speedway driver Abi..

Abi is absolutely beautiful inside and out! She has such a special touch with Hunter, that he just thinks she is the best thing in the world! So knowing how much she liked the first page that I did for Hunter, I made this special piece as a gift for her.

First I started by covering the base of the canvas with white paint, then covered it lightly with red paint to give it a distressed look. Next, using some of the offcuts from the first project, I layered the pattern paper to fit the canvas. 
The large yellow circle was inked, covered with crackle paint and the lightly dusted with some paint. 
Both of the white and black circles have been covered with coloured Distress crackle paint.

The chicken wire was coloured with Silver Gelato first, then sprayed with Silver Smooth spray. Finally, using a small paint brush, I wet it with water to distribute the colouring products evenly. It has finished off with a great shine look. 

Last steps were to simply add the embellishments and 3D the torn quote strips. I had actually had the idea of the torn strips in my head from the beginning, so I had layered the photo and the embellishments to highlight them...
