Possibility – Canvas

Finished another Canvas now. I've used fabric and decoupage on the background, then I used modeling paste and embossing powder from Lindy's Stamp Gang. The Sewing dies are from Tim Holtz, as well as the Stamp in the corner. Stamped it on plastic and embossed it before gluing it on.  Then added some buttons and a lace around the edges. Colored it with pink Dylusion spray and then Dylusion Mica Spray in pink.

Cheap Canvas!

If you like to play around on Canvas but don't feel like you can afford to buy expensive ones just for trying out new techniques and seeing how things look, I would recommend $Dollar Store in Östersund (or anywhere else you can find it). These may not be good quality, and I will absolutely put down some gesso on them as a base first, but they are cheap enough for me not to be worried about ruining it or making big mistakes.

Here I have 1 30x30cm (black), 2 21x30cm (white), 4 20x20cm (2 white and 2 blacks) and 3 12x18cm (white).

Here I only have two sizes, 2 in 40x40cm (white) and 3 40x60cm (1 black and 2 white)

For all 15 canvases I only paid 250 Swedish Kroner. (aprox 30 US$). So instead of getting 4-5 canvases for that price, I got 15. So now I can play and splash all the paint and glue on stash that I want without thinking that I'm wasting money if I'm not pleased with it.

Dream – Wish – Love

This canvas has been done for a while now, just forgot to publish it. Colorful and playful just like me 🙂
  1. The embellishments are embossed with Lindys Stamp Gang embossingpowder from the Drop Dead Diva set. And I've used Tim Holtz stamps on the fabric that has been glued on the canvas. And the "Love", "Wish" and "Dream" is also Tim Holtz stamps. The yellow circles is painted with Distress Paints.

Canvas – You are a Miracle

I have so many unfinished canvas laying around my hobby-room, I wish I could just finish them all but they just don't wanna be finished or even touched. And I can't force it. But yesterday morning I started a completely new one after looking at some tutorials on you tube. This time I decided that I was not gonna think so much, not gonna worry about the end product as much as I usually do. I would just focus on what I was doing as I did it. And I have to say I'm pretty pleased with the result. Not sure if I'm gonna keep it myself, give it away or what to do with it... but I do like it. I used lace, paper dollies, flowers, leaves and a lot of other stuff I found in my two "Box-of-goodness". Glued stuff on here and there, then covered everything in gesso before spraying it with Glimmer Mist in some pink, yellow and purple colors before ending with a few bling here and there and then the text "You are a Miracle" taped on with some 3d dots in the middle to give some wavy flow to it.
