Canvas project with Gena

Hi there! It's Gena and I wanted to share a canvas I made for my daughter.

I was so happy with how this turned out!

I used a burlap canvas and edged it with some ribbon from The Crafty Scrapper. The round ring in the center is a 6" floral ring (we will have some for sale) wrapped in the Maya Road Crafting Jute Twine. Let me tell you, that twine will last a long time! I have been using in it classes and so may projects and still have a ton left on the spool... it's a great buy! I then inked the edges.

It has taken some time and practice but I feel my layering has really come a long way.  I started with the Maya Road Buttermilk Tulle Flower and in the center a Maya Road Embellishment. From there I added the Prima Flowers Seashore Collection and large shells and then continued to add the small shells to fill in.

One other thing I do is lay it all out and then after I am happy with how it looks... gently lift and glue the items in place. I have tried taking a picture but it never seems to come out the same way.

Have a fabulous weekend!
