Hi everyone xx
This is my second entry in to the Shabby Tearoom's design call. It was inspired by my friends Linda and Hels, they make such beautiful canvas art, take a look and their blogs.
Well I started by painting my canvas with gesso and then white a pink acrylic paints. I used a baby wipe to get the aged effect.
I cut nine 2" squares from grunge paper and pink metal. I then put the grunge paper through the cuttlebug using a dot's embossing folder. I then painted the grunge board with white paint and brushed over it with vintage lipstick Tim Holtz ink pads using a baby wipe.
I put the nine metal square through the cuttlebug cutting little postage stamps and then back through with different embossing folders. The metal was wiped with white paint to age it a little.
I made a flower using a LLB stamp, stamped on to the metal, cut out and put together as you would using the grunge paper roses method.
I have used a memory capsule and 2" square metal frame and popped some pink beads in it and hung a little rocking horse from the bottom.
The centre has a book plate which I used a word for the TH ticket book and covered in crackle accents.
I also used some ribbon and put some wax over and used a baby's feet seal.
The little chipboard crown was from Maya Road covered in pink paint and topped with glittery pink embossing powder.
Added a few more embellishments and there you have it!
Hope you like it xxx Thanks for looking xxx
