I am extremely excited that I was chosen as a Guest Designer at
Their challenge this time is BINGO
THE PRETTY LITTLE RIBBON SHOP
Here is the canvas I made for my guest designer spot
I chose the bottom 3 Bingo choices Flowers, Pearls and Lace
Above is Tilda with Dotbow, she is colored in Copics. Bonny Tilda was stamped onto card stock and lightly colored with Distressed Inks, an idea I got from my friend Chris Dark. The canvas is covered with 2 Webster Pages papers and then painted with acrylic paint to blend them in. I also edged the canvas and papers with Vintage Photo Distressed Ink.
I used mode podge to attach the sweeties and other embellishments. The flowers, metal and wood pieces were attached with Glossy accents.
I used a Whimsy post card stamp, cut it in half, scrunched it up and then distressed it. To the far left is a Melissa Frances metal corner that I attached lace to as a fan. Above on the top is more lace and it is from my mother-in-law's family stash. There are bits and pieces from other papers or embellishments but I love the birds in a row from Pion Design. They are carrying love letters but you can barely see them to the left of Tilda on the canvas.

Doing a Magnolia canvas is so easy, the canvases come in different sizes so they can be used as gifts or in place of a card. The modge podge helps keep them preserved, you just need to be careful using modge lodge with the Distressed Inks, it bleeds. Sometimes finish spray works the be best. I hope I inspired you to do a canvas, they are really fun.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and visiting me today, I love all your comments.
