Linda shares with us a project very close to her heart as she walks through life waiting for word on her diagnosis. Getting creative was a great outlet for her and we just love the special canvases she created during that time. They stand for so much and are such a good reminder to Live you Life every day. What a terrific gift idea for someone who is battling breast cancer or for those who need a little reminder to take care of themselves and Live your Life…Love your Life!!!
What you will need:
- Canvas Corp 3×3 Stretched Canvas
- Canvas Corp 4×4 Stretched Canvas
- Canvas Corp 12×12 Pink & Ivory Mini Dot Reverse
- Canvas Corp Pink Jute Hank
- Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Assorted Pink Colors
- Gold paper
- Heart or other embellishment
The video shows the details, but the fun part about this canvas is that I used the back as the front, letting the raw edges be exposed. I covered all of the canvas with Gesso, this is not required, but creates a white smooth surface and the colors pop when added. Speckles of paint create an amazing effect with the layers of tiny papers on the inside of the canvas turned shadow box. Find a heart of special trinket that means something to you and add a tie of hemp or ribbon to create your own pink ribbon.
Love these special little canvases Linda created. We are so thrilled she got good news from the doctor, what an important reminder to stay on top of those check ups.
Thanks Linda for getting up close and personal and inspiring us!! To see more of Linda’s work visit her blog
