My 'Happy Memories' 10" x 12" Canvas.

Hello my Lovelies,

Thank you all so much for your kind comments and visits to my last blog.   We have had another warm, sunny day here, despite showers being forecast lol!   We could hear  distant thunder this afternoon but thankfully it didn't reach us.   I hope you have all enjoyed your weekend whatever you have been doing.

It is time for me to share another of my projects.   Tonight I am sharing another of my canvases which was made for Imagination Craft's One Day Special shows on the Hochanda T.V. Channel, at the end of last month.

Begin by painting the canvas with the acrylic fabric paints, Ashy rose, Fuschia, Yellow, Sage & Lavender blue, spraying a little water onto the canvas first, using the canvas in a landscape syle, using downward strokes.   Leave to dry

.Lay the stencil onto the canvas, on the left.   Hold in place with masking tape, then spread the Structure paste through the design.

Remove the stencil and wash it.   When the structure paste is dry, 'flip' the stencil over and lay on the right of the canvas, secure with masking tape.  

and spread the structure paste through the design.   Remove the stencil and leave the image to dry.

Lay the stencil back in position and using the metal spatula, spread the copper Textile Sparkle Medium over the top of the structure paste.   Remove the stencil and wash it and repeat it on the right side of the canvas.

Lay the 'Celebrate' stencil across the top of the canvas and spread the structure paste through the design, remove the stencil and leave to dry.   Wash and dry the stencil, then replace the stencil back in position and stipple some Menthol and Antique Pink Starlight Textile paints through the word 'Celebrate' on top of the paste, using a stencil brush.

Colour some black card with the copper textile Sparkle Medium and when dry, die-cut two ornate frames and eight corners from it.


 Take two vintage photos and place behind the frames (I used a Joanna Sheen CD rom which I have, called 'Fashion Boutique,' to create my photos.

Glue the frames to the left and right, centrally on each texture paste design.

Glue one corner die in each corner of the canvas

Glue two corners together and glue to the canvas, just under the word  'Celebrate'.   Repeat this and glue the other two together,  near the bottom of the canvas.

Using the stencil, draw around one of the flowers onto some white card, do this twice, then cut them out, paint them with the menthol, adding a touch of the pink.

Glue these in the centre, between the frames, using Magi-bond glue.   Shape the leaves (flowers) with your fingers.

 Colour a piece of white card with the Ashy rose and Fuschia acrylic paints and cut out a 2 inch circle.   Make a cut round and round the circle, making a spiral.

Roll this up using a quilling tool or your fingers, then glue so it does not unwind.

Glue the rose to the green flowers (used as leaves for this canvas) and the canvas is now finished.

Quite a time consuming canvas, I do hope you have managed to stay with me until the end lol! 

Thanks for visiting my blog, I hope you have found your visit interesting and hopefully, inspiring.
Have a good week and I'll be back again  soon.   Happy Crafting.
