I have been wanting to make a canvas for my aunt's birthday for some time and had several different types in mind when I finally decided to use one of Marylou's (Meggie's Nana) canvases for inspiration.
The verse on my canvas is one that my aunt told me that Grandma used to say. I thought it was so clever I decided to surprise her with it on this canvas.
So, first, I gathered several of my embossing folders together, inked one side of each one, used white cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot. After I cut them to various sizes I rubbed Tsukineko Brilliance Starlite Silver over the raised edges. I then inked the edges of all of them with TH Black Soot so they would stand out a bit. I glued each piece down with Mod Podge Matte finish. Then I sprayed Perfect Pearls mist in Biscotti to give it a bit of a sheen.
The fun part was choosing the embellies! I knew I wanted to use my favorite handmade flower on it. I also chose a Creative Embellishments Flourish 17 chippie that I dabbed with Folk Art Pearl Aqua Moire paint using a paper towel. Then I dabbed a little Adirondack Pearl on it.
The lace for the flower and center are from Gone Artsy as well as the resin clock. The silver lace appliques as well as the white applique at the top right are from Melissa (Scraphouse). Thank you Melissa! The pink pearls are from Pamela Wright. The little keys are Fairy Tale from Hobby Lobby. The large key is Spare Parts also from HL. The green flourish under the flower I cut with my Cricut ages ago.
Embossing folders used:
Darice - Argyle, Clock background, Damask, and Bold Floral
Paper Studio - Curl Ribbon, Mum Flowers, Intricate Swirl, and Quatrefoil
Thank you so much for stopping by my gallery. I appreciate your kind remarks and votes tremendously.
I also used butterflies that I diecut with my Big Shot. Sprayed them with a little Biscotti Perfect Pearls also.
