Canvas Art

In the fall I taught a class using the Canvas Art Workshop On The Go® which was Close To My Heart’s special for July.

Here is my finished project:

 I love the large frame for the 5×7 photo, but I wasn’t overly fond of the colors of the frames for the 2.5×2.5 photo. Thankfully CTMH offers a variety of chipboard accents and I happened to have the perfect frame on hand from the Dimensional Elements Framework. I used Ruby Exclusive Ink® with a sponge dauber to color the white frame to match the theme of the art project.

I also wanted the canvas to be as versatile as it possibly could be, So I added hook & loop velcro dots to the underneath side of the frames, and onto the canvas where the frames attach.

As you can see below, by using the Hook & Loop velcro dots I can swap my photos in and out easily! This is the same canvas, but it has a completely different look by just swapping the photos! Changing the photos is a snap since the frame from the Framework Dimensional Elements is made to fit a wallet size photo versus the frame that came with the kit which is made to fit a 2.5×2.5 photo. Simple and easy! Love that!!!!

Now onto the card a card I created in September! (Wow! I know this is late, but better late than never, right?!?)

{Card inspired by page 89 in the Autumn/Winter 2013 Idea Book. }

Starting with a Colonial White Cardstock base I added a layer of Autumn Terracotta Cardstock and another layer of Colonial White. Using the Remarkable Wreath Stamp Set I stamped the wreath in Cocoa Exclusive Ink® and the leaves in Autumn Terracotta Exclusive Ink®. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and stamped in Cocoa Exclusive Ink®. I also added some Bronze Glitz™ Glitter Gel (while supplies last) to the wreath to add some sparkle

{Here you can really see the gleam from the Glitter Gel and the Shimmer Trim!}

The bow is tied using Natural Hemp (retired) and I added a Durable Square Stud (while supplies last) for a finished look. The strips at the bottom of the page are made using Olive Cardstock and Bronze Shimmer Trim. To create the pattern on the green cardstock I used the Fabulous You Stamp Set in Olive Exclusive Ink®.
