Greet Visitors with a Cheerful Canvas Hanging!

By Gail Green


BASE: Using black ink, stamp “HOME” on the lower right-hand corner of Canvas Blank. Using Art Dauber, stencil 3 leaves in Pinetree, as shown.  Put stamped Canvas Blank into Color Catcher (or other box). Place Butterfly Stencil in upper right-hand corner and spray with Artichoke; dry completely and iron flat, if desired.

           SHABBY TRIM: Cut a 10” length of Shabby Trim. Using Bloom Stencil, dab leaves onto trim with both green inks; dry.

      WOOD CLOTHESPINS: Spray Artichoke onto 2 clothespins. Wipe off excess; dry completely.
      CANVAS BLOOMS: Lightly press one large and one small canvas Bloom into Squash and Pumpkin Pie ink pads. Place into the spray box; lightly spray Bubblegum, Strawberry, Tangerine and Guava on both canvas pieces; dry completely. Dab Mudslide around edges.

TO FINISH: Glue Blooms onto Blank with Fabri-Tac, pressing until glue grabs. Using Gem-Tac, add button and pearl embellishments, as shown; dry. Position stamped Shabby Trim and secure in corners with sprayed clothespins.

Your wall hanging is now ready to display!
