Mason's Canvas

This proved a bit of a challenge for me as my niece asked me to make this as a gift for somebody with modern style.
Tricky, because my comfort zone is vintage and grungey.
I spotted a really sweet layout on pinterest by Nicole Nowosad and used that as my inspiration.

I tried to keep it cleen looking but it just didn't work!!
She wanted baby blue and orange with neutrals and I spotted this fabby Authentiqe Gathering collection which was the perfect colours, and double sided so I only needed two sheets to get a nie variey of patterns.

I painted the canvas with acrylic paints and crackle claze.

The photo is printed on canvas paper, and I used the excess paper to cover the chipboard hearts before I painted them..
I really like the mini canvas at the bottom.

Its all spritzed with TH distress re-inker in a mini mister with a little bit of sunflower perfect pearls for some shimmer.
