Unruly Paper Arts: Add Dimension to Canvas

UPATextureonCanvasThe October issue of Unruly Paper Arts is all about canvas, and we’re starting the month off with a few new Reader Art Quests where all are welcome to join in on a specific theme.  This one is adding dimension to canvas.

I’ve used many layers of paints, archival inks, Dylusions ink sprays, stencils, and modeling paste. I’ll join in at Try it on Tuesday with their layers challenge. Hope you’ll pop on over to UPA and join in the challenge, and check out all the great articles lined up this month.

Thanks for visiting!
