I didn't take photo's of the process on the canvas but I will explain a bit about how I did it!! :-)
I got this A5 size Diary, and decided it needed a bit of cheering up! :-)
I had gotten the January Creativity Magazine and there was a free gift with it, Stamp set and paper pack. I used one of the papers a small floral, it was A4 size so I cut it in half and tore the edges.
I stuck it down on the front and back covers using Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi Medium in Matte.
I left it to dry and cut some Jute ribbon and sprayed it with Glimmer mist Iridescent Gold.
It's hard to see in the photo but it gave it a nice shimmer. I used the Multi Medium to stick this down to the left side of the book.
Next I got a small Doily and sprayed it with the same glimmer mist.
I dried it with My Heat Tool and stuck it down with the Multi Medium.
Next I took another one of the free papers from the pack it had a lovely pattern of tape measures.
I stamped the Freebie heart stamp onto the paper with Black Archival ink and cut it out, and again stuck it down with the Multi Medium.
I cut the letters from Grungepaper using the Tim Holtz Wordplay die.
I covered them with Black Acrylic Paint Dabber, when that was dry I again covered them with Distress Crackle Paint in Clear Rock Candy.
I left this to dry overnight as I feel it gives a better effect when left to dry naturally.
I again stuck these down with the Multi Medium, where the letters overlapped the jute I needed to add a bit of Glossy Accents to keep it down.
Nearly there!! LOL :-)
Next up I stuck on 2 buttons using the Glossy Accents.
I had this Forever Friend 3D Embellishment pack for ages and thought it was too cute to use!
Still can't believe I did!!
I stuck it down on 3d foam along with a few heart shape gems!
My second project is a small canvas.
I painted the canvas all over with a dark brown Acrylic paint,when that was dry
I covered it all over again with a generous layer of Crackle Medium.
I left this to dry overnight and then went over it with a coat of white Acrylic paint.
This gave the lovely crackle background.
I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist Iridescent Gold and Perfect Pearls Mist in Perfect Pearl.
I used a Spellbinders Scalloped Heart Die to cut out the Photo and inked around the edge.
It was stuck down with Glossy Accents.
Down the two sides I stuck down some pretty lace and then put a string of flat back pearls the
centre of the lace. I stuck three little roses in the corners.
I stamped the wording using a Kaisercraft Stamp set, I stuck it behind a bookplate,
and added two flat back pearls for the finishing touch.
The wording says:
"Remember Life's Treasures are People not Things"
Well I hope You enjoyed seeing My projects.
