It has just started to rain here this morning. I went with my sister yesterday and put my parents air conditioners in. It's going to be a hot one this week.
I worked on my canvas for the challenge over at Joan's Gardens this weekend and it was so much fun. It did require to make a trip out to Joan's to pick up the leaf die and a few more things just for fun. Thanks Joan for putting up with me when you were so busy. It is ready to be unveiled this morning. Here is the link to the challenge... http://www.atjoansgardens.com/2011/07/this-weeks-guest-designer.html
The challenge is cloth and cardstock embossed flowers. Here is my take on it....
|I decided to make an altered canvas for this project,just because I like to do this type of art.|
|This is a top view to show my hanger for the canvas. I wrapped the whole canvas with braided jute and attached the hanger with upholstry tacks.|
|Another view of the top showing my sun. This was cut from colored chipboard with the big sun die from sizzix.|
|For my wording I used a saying from a Stampscapes nature set. I stamped this onto bristol board and cut it using the spellbinders large lables. I also cut the mat with the same spellbinder die.|
|I needed to add a natural element to this canvas. I used reindeer moss to add a touch of the earth.|
I want to thank the guest designer Lana for sharing this technique with all of us. This is going to be one of my favorite techniques.
Now off to get ready for my day job...
