Hi .. Bev here today and OMG ..my first ever real canvas attempt... sure hope you like it.
It all started with canvas shapes from Linnie Blooms... and
I knew exactly what I wanted to do with these really cool canvas trees and leaves.
I started with a 8 1/2"x 12" canvas from the dollar store.
I used paint strips on the background to start.
Then I mask with gesso for more texture and then added more paint splatter.
Next I used Paper House papers.. plywood and pine forest... rustic and ripped
it and edges with ranger ink.
More layers with some burlap, strip of cork and a section of Creative Embellishments accent.
Phot was placed under the accent a bit and the
painted trees cover the base of the photo also.
I put a cute rubon on a piece of paper, ribbed and inked and applied
to top right corner of all the layered textures.
I added and metal accent and a twine tied metal keys accent.
In the top upper left corner I inked the leaves, doodled spines and added buttons.
Using Cricut I cut the title "best memories".
Be sure to visit Linnie Blooms blog and store.. amazing craeative
projects to inspire you.. and give you fab hints on how to use all
the fabulous canvas shapes and many other unique accents.
