Most of you already know how inspired I was in class with May Flaum over at BPC! In fact, I am still inspired! It was an amazing 12 weeks, I am so sad it is over...yet so happy to have done it! For one of our final projects, May showed us a wonderful video of a small canvas she did. I loved that idea and decided to make a little one too - for my mom - for mother's day - YAY!
Let's get started:Perhaps a resist will get us off to a nice start?
OOOOh, pretty! That was indeed a good way to start!
Time to put that resist to work with some misty fun!
Oh, yeah - I suppose I should mention at this point that I have NO plan for this. Just having fun and hoping for the best here :) I like it so far...
But, I wish that chevron was a bit more contrasty. How about some pen action?
A quick look see in my scrap pile and these seem to fit the bill. This canvas might be nice with a little interactive card on it...
After stitching some texture onto that banner element, I am thinking some heat embossing might be fun. Perhaps a weathered copper look?
Hmmmm.... well, that was a fun experiment, but I am not impressed. Oh well, most of it will get covered up. Let's move on, shall we?
And placement likie so? I think so...
Time for a title...complete with UTEE and Distress Stickles:
And perhaps some fringe?
Curled fringe? FUN!
(I have to thank Heidi Swapp for this awesome fun! I heard an interview where she spoke of the new "trimmings" in her product line. She explained that they are made out of a material similar to the building fabric, Tyvek. Well, hubster just happened to have some Tyvek, so I gave it a go. While it certainly doesn't seem to be nearly as cool and awesome as the actual "trimmings," it's still fun and I have had a good time messing with it!)
And now, the title needs a little embellishment. A patterned paper heart layered with a Tyvek heart might do the trick:
With the embellishment done, the canvas is just about complete. After some more pen lines, some scraps, a bit of washi, some rather extensive pondering, and a night of sleeping...I finally decided to call it finito!
Happy Mother's Day!!!
I hope yours is filled to the brim with love!
