My Canvas...................

When we were in California at CHA Ranger had a display of 8x8 canvas that several designers had created. It was fun to guess which canvas belonged to which designer. So I thought it would be fun to have the design team here do the challenge, little did I know I needed to do one too...but I am always up for a challenge.

I used some fun technique's on this one. I first stamped the canvas with one of Tim Holtz new stamps, stamped the edge with a script stamp, then placed a Heidi Swapp mask on to spell family. DO NOT use heat gun, I melted the mask and should have know better, put I was being to impatient, LOL! Then I painted sunflower paint and crackle vintage photo crackle paint covering up the background stamp. The picture was printed on fabric and curled up. The flowers are made with metal, I used 2 molds and then cut them in the diecut machine, inked and curled them. You can see that background stamp in the middle of the flower. The little family saying on the right, was typed on Joanna's new German typewriter...yes I am now in search of one and have bought one of her extra typewriters for the shop. This was fun to do, I just went at it and tried everything I have been wanting to try!
