Canvas Project

Hello everyone!

So over the weekend I got inspired. After browsing blogs and galleries, the mojo flowed and out came project after project. I've got a lot to share with you over the next couple of weeks. Pretty excited to finish things up - both the assignment sort and just for fun projects. Yay! 

The other day I was blog hopping and had to visit the Lily Bee blog. There I found the cutest little canvas project designed by Kay Rogers. Click here to see the post. She was inspired by a photo she found on Pinterest. I knew I wanted to try this myself and just tweak it a wee bit to fit with what I had.  I used the Harvest Market collection of papers and put them on an 8x10 canvas.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out a flower shape for a mask. While I loved the heart idea, I wanted to do something less "seasonal". For my canvas, I wanted to incorporate my word for 2012 and the scripture it's based off.

I used Helmar Professional Acid Free Glue to adhere down the squares and then took some Glimmer Glam in Chandelier over the top of all of it. Love me some sparkle! Then, I used the mask and painted white paint that had some Glimmer Glam mixed into it and a few drops of water. After painting, I used some crumpled tissue paper to blot over it all.

I used a charcoal pencil to outline the flower and added a black pearl. Used a mix of Thickers and alpha from Lily Bee to create the verse.

I like a black frame around my canvas projects so I painted that around the edge. Before adding the Thickers and the pearl I went over the canvas with Mod Podge to seal it in. 

The canvas is already hanging up on my wall. Love the reminder to Be STILL. :)
