My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors
Thursday already, my how the days are flying by.
On Tuesday afternoon I went to my friend Linda as she was going to
give me some tuition in creating a canvas. This is something I
seen many times in blog land have always admired these
outstanding creations and wanted to learn how to start.
Well on with the aprons, and away we went and boy did I have some
fun once Linda directed me as to the techniques and what I needed
So to Linda I say a big thank you and you do know that now I will
be spending more money !!! Oh NO!!!!!!!!
Anyway I did it and here is my first canvas masterpiece and yes
its already hanging on the wall.
Picture has been generated by my computer and I
set it print out opaque as I did not want to bright
a picture. Lace was then added to the top and
down one side.
I then used a stencil to created the flourishes at
the corners. On the opposite corners I stuck
metal corners then arranged metal flowers
around. Before adhering the flowers I used
silk flowers in the centre just to soften them.
Metal leaves helped to finish off the design.
The final touch was to add the metal butterfly
and there you have it MY MASTERPIECE.
I know its not really a masterpiece compared to
some of the amazing work out there but it's
all mine and I hope with practice to get
better and learn some new technique and create
even more little gems.
Well that's all from me today, I do hope you
have enjoyed your visit and that you will
join me again tomorrow.
Until Next Time
Take Care and Happy Crafting
