Today I am showing you a canvas I made for a wedding in our family, second cousin. The family is getting older or is it that I am getting older because we are now seeing the second cousins getting married. lol This young lady used to carry everyone's babies around at family events, one baby after another. She was a welcomed baby holder for me. I wanted to give her something special for her wedding. The canvas if for one of their wedding photos.
I left a blank space for the photo and decorated it with old lace from a grandmother and some old jewelry as well as a ton for flowers from WOC.
I added Melissa Frances white key holes and a key with the old jewelry that I took apart.
A few Prima emblems and buttons mixed with the florals.
You can see the space for their photo on the right.
I modge podged lace and 2 sentiment areas on first. Then I added the ribbon flowers on the bottom with glossy accents. I mixed some distressed ink Tattered Rose with water and washed over the whole canvas. After it dried I glued everything else on with Glossy Accents and then washed it with white acrylic paint, let it dry. One more coat of Tattered Rose with water, dry. Then on the edges and sides I did a wash of water and Ice Spruce Distressed Ink.
The ribbon roses are pretty big as this is a 8x10 canvas
I would like to enter the following challenges
