Follow me canvas

Hello evryone! November is here and this time it will be canvas themed. I found my inpiration in this art white fields and they are so versatile that you can go on with creating for hours. Well her is my firs november canvas: Follow me!

I used a Canvas Corp canvas where you can find lots of sizes of them and burlap as well. For the heart I used a base of cardboard covered with Canvas Corp papers. I have to say they are very good for distressing and I found surprising especially the Blue and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse paper beacause when you blend the ink on it the white doots go brown but the blue color resists and creates a very cool effect. The other two papers are from the same brand: the Tan and Ivory Ribbon Stripe and the Black and White Diamonds. The embellishments are from 7Gypsies: the mini key, the vintage pin, the optical lens and the industrial gears.

The background is created with a generous base of white acrylic.  The branches are made as always with Tattered Angels High Impact paint thet stays glossy and resistant. Everything is completed with accents of Glimmer mist and straining of Glimmer Glazeboth from Tattered Angels. The corners of the canvas are stamped with the 7Gypsies stamp Abundance (maybe a coincidence ;-)) from the Christmas Greeting set.

This time I wanred to complete the branches with the Canvas Corp wire from the Walldeorative hardware box. I added the Black Imapct paint also here to make them more creepy and less wirely...I love how they continue to expand the canvas project out of it's space...

I hope you like this canvas because more are just about to follow. Have a nice day!

Easter fairytale egg

Hello! Here is my new project - a gothic fairytale easter egg. I used many Canvas Corp products that offer versatility and a great base for further ideas. I covered an egg with Canvas Corp canvas.

I just teared it into stripes and glued them on. Several touches of distressing make the defference: the Canvas Corp string and wire for stitches, the distressing with Color Box Mix'd Media inxs (Leather and Jasmin), some crackle paint on the egg and on the  Sizzix Movers & Shapers Magnetic Die Set 2PK - Mini Butterflies Set as well. The bottom of the egg is the burlap flower from CC and I also put a little jasmin ink on it. In my oppinion it looks like moss right from the woods. I love it. For the embellisments I decided to make some space for (broken) buttons (already necessary part of my projects), / Gypsies pins, Canvas Corp clips. I finished with colored normal pins, wire and the black butterfly with Tattered Angels  Glimmer Glaze Nori and High Imapct mixed media pait Antique Gold.

I love it on my mini pedestal and I hope it has the look of a magic egg right out of a fairytale.   

Some more eggs are waiting to come.....

U shine like a star

Hello everyone! I'm here sharing my latest  LO. For this one I decided to use as the central element the  Sizzix Bigz Die - Stacked Stars.  I embossed the stars with Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folders 2PK - Basket Weave & Honeycomb Set to give them  little dimension. The paper is from  Canvas Corp  - Black & White Ribbon Stripe - I absolutley love these papers because they perfectly complete my style! I covered it with some bandages and texture paste and some crackle paint.

 Of course I love my black branches for my Gothic Fairytale style, so I decided to use this time the High impact  Tattered angels Paint to make them. I actually use a toothpick to make them and it was simple and quick and they look a bit 3D as well! Let me mention that I used the High impact paints also for the word shine. I simply wrote the letters on an acetate, combining two colors: Platinum and Antique Gold.

I hope you like it! See ya soon!

Hello everone! A new LO in my gothic fairytale style. Many 7 Gypsies elements like the paper, the litle key, the dome studs. I think they are perfect for my style. The paper has a very versatile style and I made a hidden pattern with some white paint. I also used the Sizzix Bigz Die - Garden Greens to contour the photo and I painted them black with the Tattered Angels High impact mixed media paint and I used the same paint in the Antique Gold color for the drops.

 I hope you like it and found some inspiration!
