There Are Two Gifts…Heart Canvas
Howdy Canvas Corp Brands Fans!!! Lynne Forsythe here sharing a canvas I created for CHA this year.
As you may or may not know….I just LOVE creating Mixed Media Canvases and this canvas was EXCEPTIONALLY fun!!
I began my creative journey with a 12 x 12 stretched canvas.
I then pulled out a package of 4 Canvas Corp Brands Coasters
and 4 Gypsy Trading Cards ~ Canvas
and began to arrange them on the canvas and to my GREAT excitement they fit together just PERFECTLY!!
I roughed up the various Canvas Pieces….
Stamped on them
Stenciled on them
to create a VINTAGE look.
I then pulled out my stash of Gypsy Moments,
I have to say…
EVERY TIME I look at this collection of paper…..I sigh!!
The vintage shabby look just makes my heart sing!
I began creating a patchwork heart on my canvas pieces
using the various papers from the Gypsy Moments Collection
so that now two shapes were the same.
I distrezzed the edges of the papers and adhered them to my canvas shapes.
I then went to my vintage stash….
of antique lace
metal pieces parts
and let the mixed media creativity flow!!
The focal point of my canvas is
a BEAUTIFUL Petaloo flower
backed by diecut ivy
cut from Tattered Angels ~ Pure Mistable Papers Boucle ~ White.
I finished of my canvas with a quote from
Gypsy Moments ~ A Novel Thought.
There are sooo many fabby quotes on this paper
the one that spoke to me was…..
I hope you have enjoyed my creative journey as much as I did!!!
Cut, paint, stencil, stamp, ink, layer, marker….have fun trying these amazing techniques that Lynne created.
