We covered the canvas with old Reader's Digest pages, and then took masking tape and put it on the front of the canvas and pulled it off, removing some of the words and distressing the paper. We then made the flowers with one of the dies from Tim Holtz Tattered floral dies and but Distress Stickles in Rock Candy to give it a sugared effect. Then we stamped some swirls on the canvas, distressed the edges with ink and glued the leaf, flower and the word on it. Viola! It is finished!
I made this layout with a leftover My Creative Scrapbook kit, using a sketch by one of the design team members at LIITD. I love Webster's Pages paper! It takes a bit of getting used to -fussy cutting the beautiful papers, but well worth the effort! This is photo of Jerica and I on Christmas day last year, during a blizzard. It was good to be inside where it was nice and warm with family!
The flower and the bling flourish is from Prima, the tiny flowers are from a new site i found. I ordered them in white, and then I color them whatever color I want. I made the leaves with my beloved Gypsy/Cricut.
I used my distress tool on all the edges and then inked them with distress ink.
This sweet little bird came with the My Creative Scrapbook kit and I just love it!
Thanks for taking a look! I look forward to hearing from you all!
