A canvas Inspired by Linda

As it is a horrid, snowy, cold day I have time to do a Linda Inspired Canvas.

Canvas from stash, painted in Mermaid Fresco paint edged with Inky Pool and a darker shade, which is a mix of Claret and Pea Coat. I then stamped bubbles in the same colour and stamped the leaves in a combination of Hyde Park and Limelight. Stamps are Jo Firth Young's JOFY 09.  I then stamped some of these stamps using Black Versafine on to Paperartsy Crackly Tissue, painted the back with previous colours, then went over with Snowflake and Mermaid. At first I thought I had messed up as I made a shadow of white around the stamping, but when it was on the canvass I liked the white outline.Then attached the tissue to the canvass using Fresco Satin Glaze. Back to the bubble stamp with Snowflake and that completed the canvas.


  1. This is just beautiful, Margaret! I love these colours, and the white is such a great touch to make everything pop! Beautiful..

  2. Really beautiful! It works perfectly.
