This is a recycled canvas of a painting I did several years ago that I was never really happy with however I couldn't bring myself to just toss the thing away. To prep the canvas for repainting I gave it a light sand and then used an old credit card to apply texture paste over the entire surface. I then applied antiquing medium and once dry used a credit card to scrape white paint loosely over the top. I painted the girl with acrylic paints and then used texture paste to mould the dress.
Once dry I added vintage glitter glue and a phrase typed on my brand 'new' typewriter.
Never be afraid to let yourself shine.
