I drew a Cinderella the other day and decided to colour her today. Then - what to do with her? I painted a canvas (11X14) using watercolours (a Crayola kids' set) to create a whimsical castle. Then I glued her on with gel medium. I did discover one thing. DO NOT USE CHEAP CANVAS BOARDS! All I could find was a bargain brand and when I unwrapped the 3-pack, the gesso had adhered them together. When I seperated them, there were patches where the gesso had lifted and I could not repair them at all. I will have to purchase some from Michael's - the ones i had were from Joanne's.
