Heartfelt Flowers and Canvas

First of all let me say a big thank you to those of you who left their good wishes on my last post. Mum and Andrew are now back at home trying to get into some sort of routine (I remember it well), I'm sure that it won't take to long. Today I would like to show you this canvas that I have been working on over the last couple of weeks. It's for a workshop that my crafting buddy Elaine and I are going to run in August. The letters on the background are texture paste through a stencil made on the Scan-n-cut, then when dry and painted with gesso and was sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. I stamped very lightly and randomly over the canvas with a text stamp when the spray was dry. Then made some flowers using Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Fleur, Classic Leaf and Open Leaf stamp and die sets, coloured with aqua pencils and stuck on with glue gel. The butterflies are from a set from Stampin Up.  I've really enjoyed making this canvas and I hope that the ladies that come along to the workshop enjoy making it too.



I'm going to enter this into the challenge over on the Love To Create blog which wants Anything Mixed Media/Creative/Inky Goes...

Thanks for taking to time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

  1. Gorgeous canvas Sue, the flowers are beautiful, it will be a fun class. I have a lot of HC dies, they are fantastic, I need to get them out for play more often, some are still unused. Take good care, Shirleyxx
