WOYWW Week 150 - Canvas Frame

Hello Blog friends

It's Wednesday again and if you hope over to see Julia at http://stamping-ground.blogspot.co.uk/ you can join in the fun too!

This is my first WOYWW for three weeks, I have been away, hence my desk is very tidy (for me).  Stacked in the corner are some new goodies and the canvas I made recently.  I love making flowers with my Spellbinder Shapeabilities die and also TH's tattered floral dies.  My desk first:


Next is a picture of the frame - canvas, 12 inches square, covered in TH papers, TH dress form and birdcage, Spellbinder butterflies, Marianne bird die, a few pearls, some TH wings, some chipboard swirls, tulle, gems and a lot of Kaisercraft acrylic paint and voila!  I have done a close up of the flowers too.




















The close-up shows the flowers in more detail.  I just die cut lots of flowers, spritz them to within an inch of their life, layer them whilst still wet, put a brad in the middle, scrunch them hard, separate them slightly and then when they dry they go really hard but look like this.  Making them has become something of an obsession.

Thanks for looking, if you do have a look please leave me a comment and I will try to return the favour.  Crafty hugs, Anne x

  8. That's a beautiful canvas and the flowers you made are ultra pretty. Was browsing an old Craft Stamper yesterday and one of the articles I bookmarked to go back to was voile flowers singed over a candle - very pretty but I better turn off the smoke alarm before I have a go.
