I have had this Maya road chippie for a while and it suddenly hit me when I was looking at my Claudine Hellmuth sticky canvas what I should do with it :D

This is a little wall or door hanger made specially for my little niece Jess :D

I started by drawing around the chipboard on to the sticky backed canvas and cut out so that it was slightly bigger than the chipboard shape.

I placed the sticky side down on the patterned side of the paper I had chosen ( K&co Cut and paste) then burnished with the back of a spoon. I gently scored the paper, dunked in a dish of water and rubbed away the paper to reveal the pattern adhered to the canvas.

When all the paper was removed I enveloped it in a towel and ironed it dry.

I then stuck it on to the chippie with glossy accents - my fave glue as its really strong and dries fast :D

I coated it with Claudines multi matte medium when dry as this hides any little pieces of paper you might have missed when you removed it and makes it look neater. You can fray the edges if you like but I would do it before you seal it with the medium

I inked the edges with a chalk inkpad then used Viva Decor stamps using the same ink pads.

My letters were coated in versamark the dipped and heated in cosmic shimmer utee - what a gorgeous shimmer it gives YUM!! 009

Please excuse the still wet glue on the pic!!!

But how nice is the texture on the canvas - this has to be one of my fave techniques :D

I added a transferred canvas butterfly with some perfect pearls, Prima flowers, gems and buttons.

The T-shirt chippie was meant to be in a mini book so had a hole punched on one side, so I added another hole and a ribbon to create a hanger.

Most of the ingredients are available from Caroline at BUBBLY FUNK :D

Well, I got a lovely suprise today :D

I spotted a gorgeous bag and fell in love with it on my last trip to Carlisle bu Disaster Designs but my hubby wouldn't byme it LOL
