Canvas ~ Simply Love

Hi there!

Ahhh... the sweet solitude of a weekend at home!  Made it ~ at last.  

Here's a canvas I created, begun with a piece of old paper, stenciled using Color Shine sprays, and Margaret's heart stencil {from Stencil Girl Products}
 A very fun beginning, and then I added a piece of batting to the back, and stitched it in black thread.  Because this was pretty fragile paper, it tore a little bit here and there, which I found I liked, as the thread then disappeared into the batting, and became less perfect-looking. Worn... a tiny bit distressed. {that sums up my week at work!}
 Lots of layering... trial and error... stamping, spraying... painting.
 The swirly textured wall paper was absolutely my favorite part!  Love that texture.
Finished off with a top layer of gold metallic Color Shine spray {these are from Heidi Swapp, which I purchased at Michaels Craft Store}





I ended up liking the final piece pretty well; wasn't sure I would.  And finally, I added a bit of decopauge medium to help protect the paper of the heart. And ~ it's listed for sale in my Etsy store!

Have a great  Saturday!
XO
