Canvas Art

Don't forget to check out Stampin' Up!'s retiring stamp sets and accessories from the 2012-2013 Catalog.

I've wanted to show you this wonderful canvas art that some friends and I made awhile ago.  The design came from Stampin' Up!  It was one of the extra classes that you could take at Convention last year. 

Speaking of Convention, Stampin' Up! is celebrating their 25th Anniversary this year - and Convention promises to be even more of a blast than usual (if that's possible)!  I'm going to be there and can't wait!

Below is the canvas art that we made.  It's pretty much all done with various Designer Series Papers and buttons.  I'm not a painter by any means, so this was perfect for me!

The canvas frame was covered with the First Edition Specialty DSP, which was then painted along the outside edges with blue acrylic paint.  The top left and bottom right corners have the Distressed Dots background stamp stamped with Craft White ink.

The flowers were made by punching out scallop circle shapes from various Designer Series Papers and then folded into the different shapes.  Some of the centers have Naturals Designer Buttons added.

Here are some close-ups of a few of the flowers.

When mine was completed, it was a little bare at the top, so I stamped on our 7/8" Cotton Ribbon using the Distressed Dots and one of our blue inks (I don't remember which one - it was whatever came closest to the blue acrylic pain we used).  That was attached across the top of the frame.

The saying is from Trust God, stamped in blue on Very Vanilla card stock, and then punched out with the Decorative Label Punch.

It was such a fun day and we all came away with an adorable piece of art!  Hope you've enjoyed taking a look.  Until next time...
