Creative Artist - Canvas

Hi My Crafty  Blog Friends

It is Friday the weekend has arrived. We have a fun day planned tomorrow. Our daughter and her fiancé will be visiting as it is my birthday on Monday and that is the best day for use to get together. We will be starting off with hat shopping for a wedding in July.

My Design team makes have been nicely spread out this month. Last month three of them came together on the same day. Being the first Friday of the month the new challenge starts on the Creative Artiste challenge blog the theme is Anything Goes.

We have a sponsor Maja Design the prize will be a pack sent out from the sponsor.

I have made something I have never made before - a canvas.

I quite enjoyed making it in the end. I used lots of things from my stash that I haven't used before. This is quite a small canvas it measures 6" x 8". First I covered it with Gesso and then a layer of tissue paper to get some texture going. I found some spray inks in my stash and I had fun spraying the tissue paper. Once this was dry I used texture paste and masks to create some more texture. Once everything was dry I went through my crafts bits stash and added bits and bobs to the canvas. 

The butterfly was created with a Sizzix die and stamp set. 

The flower was made with the Sizzix Bigz die Tattered Florals. I love how those dies can cut fabric. 

The birds are from Marianne dies,

This bird started out white. 

More of the Tattered Florals. The bunting was created with a Tattered Lace die and the die cuts were left over from another project. 

I did enjoying making this canvas. Next time I will have a bit more idea of what to do. 

Have a wonderful weekend,

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
