After everything was dry (doesn't take too long) I set out to decorate the canvas. My base was the For Always paper packet (X7165B). CTMH has released these terrific fabric that coordinate with For Always and Chantilly. Here, I cut a strip, sewed a running stitch down the middle and gathered it for the trim. I attached it with Liquid Glass ...boy, can you use Liquid Glass for just about anything. :o) The Eiffel Tower and cameo were cut using the Artiste Cricut Cartridge (Z1790). A note about the cameo. I cut out the frame, inner circle and silhouette. Using repositionable adhesive, I attached the silhouette and sponged heavily around it using Ruby ink. When the silhouette was removed, I had a reverse mask. I stippled the center with Slate ink to give a more realistic look.
This is a close-up of the "melted" flowers that I made using the Satin Polka Dot Ribbon (Z1802). I added a glitter button (retired) with a sparkle in the center for some bling.
This is the YouTube Video I did explaining how to do the "melted' flowers.
I love the idea of being able to show off my artwork in 3D projects. They're not hard, you design them with the same thought process as you would any scrapbook layout or card. With a few dimensional embellishments and some Liquid Glass for adhesive, you've got a great 3D project. Stop by my website to check out all of the great CTMH products. For Now, Happy Crafting!
The Srapbooking Diva is back! Great job Cindy. At first I thought how can she fit all this stuff on a card and realized it was a canvas. Cool stuff! Oh how I miss Paris.
You do such wonder work Mama, your not just the paper craft Diva you are the paper craft MAVIN.
This canvas is wonderful. Love your flowers, they are fun to make, but I've never used ribbon. Thanks for sharing.
