2016 Canvas Corp Creative Crew 4x4 Canvas

Gone are the days when a quick photo could be your avatar for identifying your work. I am rather glad of that as I am less than photogenic.

Canvas Corp Brands was generous enough to send each of the crew members 2 4x4 canvas to create a design that best represents our crafting style. If you have a moment be sure to go and look at all the designers projects as they are just lovely.

How did I do it:

  • I coated the canvas with a thin layer of Gesso before laying down my base colours of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (garden fairy, wedding pink.)
  • Once the canvas was dry I adhered half of an old cotton doily, ensuring that all the loose edges were securely attached.
  • After the glue dried I sprayed the doily with  Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (wedding pink).
  • I used two rolled roses that I had made over the holidays, two homemade hatpins, a cross charm and a homemade cameo to complement the colour pallets. I added the metal corner filigree and crochet bow  and finished it off with a sentiment from Canvas Corp Brands "The Watering Can"
  • I finished the canvas off with a thin coat of Tattered Angels Dazzling Diamonds.
