Canvas' Galore

This month Lucy Edmonds of the Crafty Individuals DT would like to see our creations that can be "hung" i.e. a wall hanging, canvas, plaque etc.  I always try my best to join in this challenge as I adore the CI stamps and products.  I am still away on hols so have not had time to create a specific piece however the canvas I am entering has not been blogged and uses a number of Crafty Individuals stamps:-

I took inspiration for this canvas from a blog post I saw on Brenda's BumbleBees & Butterflies Blog but I have hopefully put my own spin on it.  I love looking at Brenda's blog - she always creates something amazing!  So thank you Brenda!

I have painted and stencilled a deep edged 8x12 inch canvas.  Three mini canvas' (from the works) were also treated to paint (inside and out).  Images were stamped onto tissue paper and then added to the canvas.  Stamping was all done in a mixture of Stazon inks. 

The hinges were from Wilkinsons and were purchased just because they were the lightest and the most attractive.  I think I paid £1 for a pack of two hinges.  I adhered the hinges to the canvas using glossy accents.

My glossy images are a mixture of Crafty Individuals and Marianne D.  Charms are a mixture of old jewellry and a wonderful range of brass charms I picked up in the Cubby Hole.


Images on the main canvas behind the mini canvas are Crafty Individuals stamps as are the fronts of two of the mini canvas'..........

Marianne D dies, english roses and butterfly completed the piece along with hand cut hearts. 
I also edged all canvas including the large one with Ranger gold acrylic dabber paints......As well as the Crafty Individuals challenge I am also entering this work into the following challenges:-
