Canvasing the Garden

The current topic over at Paper Issues is Canvas and Burlap. That's fun, right? YES! So....let's play!

A 12x12 sheet of canvas, Studio Calico mask and paint at the ready...
Oooh, pretty!
Time to get punchy with some chalk stock tags:
Little black birdies:
Now, for some contrast:
Love it!
Pretty paper? Why, yes...don't mind if I do:
All lined up! I am in love with the saturated colors in this older Crate collection.
That canvas texture is so amazing, I can't resist complimenting it with some stitching. And besides, it saves on adhesive, right?
Time to Embellish:
A bit here...
Some birds there....
Some washi love...
We grow and we eat! Veggies that is. 
After some journaling and little touches here and there...It is done! That layout actually came together super fast. How could it not with the yummy combination of colors and textures? I was so inspired!
In fact, so much so that I kept on going with these supplies and ended up making a mini book too. Craziness, I tell you! Craziness!
Wanna see? I'll show you next time :)
