Valentine's Day Blog Hop - I love Canvas!!

Club Scrap "Valentine's Day" Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog today!!  So glad to have you here.  I have been very busy, my son is in driver's ed and wants to drive ALL THE TIME...This has been keeping me outta the house more than usual.  I am glad he is so excited though and it is hard to say no to that kid!

Well if you follow my blog at all, you know I really enjoy making canvases.  I have a new office and there is some big holes in the wall from the previous occupant, and I need to make some art to cover those spots - so here is one of them!!
Tissue Paper
Modge Podge
Pop dots

1.  Paint canvas with gesso - cover entire surface - let dry.
2.  Cut a piece of tissue paper larger than the size of the canvas you are using, this will wrap around to the back of the canvas.  Stamp various images all over the tissue with black india ink.

3.  Cover surface and sides of canvas with modge podge.
4.  Quickly lay tissue over canvas where you would like it to lay.  Tissue is very fragile and will rip easily, especially if covered in modge podge, but if you happen to tear, you can just stamp an extra image on another piece of tissue and patch the spot.  Wrap around the back of canvas and set aside to dry.
5.  Once dry - spritz with Dylusions spray ink.  Use paper towel to spread ink if desired.  Let dry.
6.  Now cut 4 rectangular panels from 2 shades of pink and a bunch of hearts in different shapes and sizes.

7.  Stamp on hearts if desired.  Ink edges.  Adhere hearts onto panels with popdots.   Embellish with pearls, charms, ribbon, etc.  Adhere the 4 panels to the canvas.  Do final embellishment with hearts.
