Canvas ~ Simply Love

MarveLes Art Studios Blogs, Mixing It Up 1 Comment

Hi there!

Ahhh… the sweet solitude of a weekend at home!  Made it ~ at last.  

Here’s a canvas I created, begun with a piece of old paper, stenciled using Color Shine sprays, and Margaret’s heart stencil {from Stencil Girl Products}

 A very fun beginning, and then I added a piece of batting to the back, and stitched it in black thread.  Because this was pretty fragile paper, it tore a little bit here and there, which I found I liked, as the thread then disappeared into the batting, and became less perfect-looking. Worn… a tiny bit distressed. {that sums up my week at work!}

 Lots of layering… trial and error… stamping, spraying… painting.

 The swirly textured wall paper was absolutely my favorite part!  Love that texture.

Finished off with a top layer of gold metallic Color Shine spray {these are from Heidi Swapp, which I purchased at Michaels Craft Store}

I ended up liking the final piece pretty well; wasn’t sure I would.  And finally, I added a bit of decopauge medium to help protect the paper of the heart. And ~ it’s listed for sale in my Etsy store!

Have a great  Saturday!
XO
Leslie
