For the last 6 weeks the Inspired Stamps Blog has featured the Inspired Stamps 12 weeks of Christmas Tutorials. Each member of the Design Team will be featured demonstrating how to create a special project. This week #7 I am demonstrating how to create an altered canvas.
Below are a few of the supplies I used to create my Altered Canvas.
Once my canvas has dried, I usually let it dry overnight. I will then start deciding what all I want to include on the canvas and start by laying out my embellies and papers trying to decide where I want to go with the look of the canvas.
Above you will see I chose a B&T piece from the La Bella Vie paper pack from CTMH, along with several rolled roses, cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge, that I had laying around in my pre-made embellishment box.
Once I have my B&T paper on my canvas I once again layout my embellishments to see if what I have pictured still will work, or if I need to make any changes. I am a very visual person, and sometimes at this point I realize that what I had in mind isn't gonna work. Checking it at this point before I start gluing down the embellishments helps prevent those "Oh, shoot" moments. It is also at this point where I make sure my "frame" or "Focal Point" is the perfect size.
Once I have my Scripture Focus glued on it is time to put the finishing embellishments onto my canvas. Above I have used Modge Podge to adhere the branches and leaves to the canvas. I adhered sparkles to the holes in my "frame". I then let that layer dry and got ready for my final step.
The Final Step is to attach the rest of your embellishments, in my case the 3-D rolled Roses and Butterfly cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. I use CTMH Liquid Glass to attach my large embellishments to my Canvas.
