Graphic 45 and Core'dinations Blog Hop Day 3 - Mini Canvases

Hey everyone! Have you been following the blog hop going on? If not YOU SHOULD! 
I have never used much "cardstock" , however to me Core'dinations is so versatile, making it my go to for cardstock! I love love love the sandable colored core effects! And when it matches the G45 papers already.... perfection! I wanted my cardstock to look as if it was the canvas itself. How did
I do? LOL. I embossed them, colored with gesso and went to town coloring . After it was all done, I just sanded on top :) So easy!

When Pigs Can Fly- Altered Piggy :)

When I saw this little guy in the store I knew  I wanted to alter  it! But I thought to myself  'altered pig?'  Yep! Had to do it! Who says there are rules when creating? Graphic 45’s washi tape is perfect for altering awkward shapes surfaces! I just added a coat of clear gesso on top afterwards to seal and prime it for my inks. I did some metal foil techniques to give it a more industrial look. So fun. Hope you all like it! Hugs.
