Hi everyone.....
THANK YOU sooo MUCH

I created a mood board to base my creation on....
the theme is...


(OK....so a may be a bit shabby rustic
but it works for me!!)


I received a custome designed box from
Canvas Corp Brands to match my board.

Here is end result!


....and this is how i created this 6 x 6 Canvas.
I began by cutting 1.5" squares from
I applied the squares to my canvas with Multi Medium.
I then sprayed the entire canvas with
When dry, I lathered on a bit of gesso
and set it aside to dry.


I cut petals for my flower out of
vintage curtains and painted on
When it dries....the material
is stiffer and is able to be manipulated.


When drying the petals I crumpled
them in my hand.
When dry, I pinched the fabric together
and stapled it.
I cut a 1" circle from crafter paper
and adhered the petals in layers
with Multi Medium.


As my flower is drying,
I keep manipulating the petals.
With a round brush I painted
on a bit of
Vintage Brass
Chocolate Covered Strawberries.


I had previously applied a layer
of White Stucco which had been drying.
I then dipped my canvas in the left over
ink on my craft mat.


I pulled out a Window chippie,
globbed on gesso.
When mostly dry,
I spritzed the window frame with
Bash
When dry I cut a bit of
vintage curtain and adhered it to the back
of my window frame with Multi Medium.


I cut ivy from a piece of linen paper.
I spritzed the entire vine with
Bash
and painted on
Safari Green for contrast.


I spritzed 3 flowers with


I also cut spiral flowers from

When everything was dry I put my canvas together.
I began by stapling a piece of
Birch Bark
to my canvas.


Here are a few closeups....



I finished off my canvas with
verbage chosen from
Words for Art.
