SMILE Canvas with Petaloo and Simple Stories

For those of you who may have missed my post
on the Petaloo blog yesterday......Here it is!!

When I opened my Design Team box that contained the
Petaloo ~ Penny Lane Flowers and
Vintage Bliss by Simple Stories,
it just about killed me
to have to wait to work with
But once I had a moment....
I pulled out all the goodness
and let the creative process flow.

 and can I just tell you....I had the time of my life!!

To add a cohesiveness to all the
different Petaloo flowers that were used,
I added some Precious Metal Effect Paint to the
edges of the flowers.

The basis for the canvas was the piece of
patterened paper that I just fell in love with.
Grey Wood ~ Vintage Bliss.
Using several Crafter's Workshop Stencils,
I applied layers of Gesso
and Wendy Vecchi's Embossing Paste.

Don't you just love the "SMILE"?
It was cut from one of the Simple Stories
papers and outlined with
a Pitt Big Brush Pen
which adds lots of depth!

I created a video tutorial of the above
Technique Tag for you to
further see how I created the canvas.
I hope you enjoy it!!
