(Just in case you wonder what looks a bit strange with that image: I collaged the three images of the canvases together to give a little impression of how the look like hanging on the wall. )
The first step was to cover the canvases with burnt umber acrylic colour and let that dry. Than I applied some crackle medium and let that dry too. The upper coat was "cafe latte" and I love how the contrast worked out.
Then I prepared some glossy card with alcohol inks "raisin" and "rust" and stamped the words "Home, sweet home" onto them using the Tim Holtz "worn text" letter stamps and embossing ink to heat emboss afterwards with deep red embossing powder.
I rounded the corners using a corner punch and sanded the edges, before
punching four holes in the corners and fixing the plates to some rough burlap using tiny brads.
The lovely vintage adverts from the Tim Holtz "French Marketplace" stamp plate were stamped the same way - using embossing ink and deep red embossing powder.
The piece of bark and the ribbon were glued to the canvas using a heat glueing gun. For a finish I added some embellishments as the butterfly, the metal bird and the fabric flower from Prima.
Some close ups as usual ;)
I hope you enjoyed your visit and wish you a lot of inspiration for your own crafting and creating!
