A canvas wall hanging.......


created for Octobers Vanilla Sugar project :DI started by painting the canvas with a cream acrylic paint as a base.
I then mixed a spritz of Victoran distress re-inker with water and sprayed around the edges and through a prima mask on to the front of the canvas.
I then sponged on the inka gold in graphite through the mask with a sponge and continued round the edges of the canvas.
Next I sponged on some versamark ink in the top corner and sprinkled on some utee, which I then heated. I love texture on my work, and this gives a lovely glossy raised area on the canvas
I cut out the images from Graphic 45 Le Romantique and glued them down then highlighted with rock candy distress stickles, carefully smeared on (NOT!!!! LOL)
I spritzed some gorgeous Prima flowers with the ink then stuck them down with glossy accents.
I added some lace, TimHoltz ticket and memo pin and a metal butterfly from my stash.
I stamped and inked the edges with coffee archival ink.


Hope you like my project,
Hugs'n'snogs,
Julie xx
