Country Canvas


I made a new canvas that I wanted to share with you before I ship it off.
The papers are French Country from Graphic 45.

Here are Prima flowers, scrabble words and a note card on the bottom corner of the canvas.

In the upper left is a mixture of Prima products, a key hole from 7 Gypsies and  ribbon roses.

The big and small scallops are a die cut from Magnolia, envelope edge.  I also mod podged them to stiffen them up since they hang over the edges.

The bottom part of the canvas gives you a good look at the papers, I put brads in the center of the sunflowers. In the left corner is a Prima metal flower with pearls. The bottom fringe is from Websters Pages.

Here is the left side and the envelope edge die is used on the side as well as in the blue section, there are two, big and small overlapping each other.

All the sides are covered in the same papers and then I used Gelatos and Distressed Inks to age, blend and fill in the cracks.

I am so happy you stopped by my blog!
Have a wonderful day!!
