Friends Canvas

I love altering and lately I've been playing around with canvases. I love the look of creating a layout on canvas - there are so many options and so much that can be done with canvas. Working with Tattered Angels Glimmer Screens, Adirondack Color Washes and assorted punches, I absolutely love how this canvas turned out.

Lay Glimmer Screens on canvas and spray assorted colors lightly over screens
Allow to dry for a few moments, then move screens and spray again, if desired
Lightly spray Color Washes on 2 flowers
Blot excess ink if necessary
Cut a 7” circle from cream cardstock
Punch around the edges with Kreaxions punch #922
Lay on canvas behind photo
Add a paint strip to the right side of the canvas under the photo with wet glue
Cut Friendship Recipe to fit and distress edges
Lightly ink with Walnut Ink
Mat with brown cardstock
Adhere to left side of canvas, slightly under photo with wet glue
Turn canvas over and add pressure to help the wet glue set
Punch an 8” strip of cream cardstock with Martha Stewart Doily border punch
Add atop the paint strip with brads through canvas
Adhere photo
Punch a strip of cream cardstock with Kreaxions punch #903
Use the negative piece, lightly inking all edges
Add to coordinating strip of cardstock and adhere just under photo
Die cut Friends at 1 ¾” from A Child’s Life cartridge (font, shift + toys1) with coordinating cardstock
Die cut label at 2 ½” from A Child’s Life cartridge (label + toys1) with brown cardstock
Add Friends to label and adhere to canvas
Add brad over the “i” through the canvas
Die cut butterflies from cream cardstock and emboss with Cuttlebug embossing folder
Lightly ink with Walnut ink OR Color Washes and add with pop dots
Add flowers to canvas with brad just above doily
Cut Friendship Recipe header from cream cardstock and distress edges
Lightly ink and mat with brown cardstock
Adhere to recipe with pop dots
Add brads around photo
Rub Walnut Ink along edges of canvas

I found there was not enough color in the upper left corner, so I placed a screen on the canvas and lightly inked a portion with Walnut Ink
