I rescued this canvas from my friends studios's trashcan. It was a new canvas she was trying and it never would tighten up and started buckling under the medium, she tried various things to make it work but then decided to and start over on a better canvas. Not being one to ever see anything thrown away, I asked if I could have it . I used an exacto knife to cut off the additions. Then flipped it over and coated it with modeling paste.
I had this cute little St. Patricks day bear that has printed on his paw "Me to You" He fit in the opening just perfect! He is not attached, so can be removed, if wanted. I collaged tissue papers and stickers, added gems and an old really cool button.
