Happy Monday! We are a little late posting Cathy's beautiful project, but it is gorgeous! We love the altered canvas she created!
It's Cathy here again! Time for another project using the gorgeous Strong & Free Collection. This time a made a 10X10 canvas that can be kept up all year around. I really love the quote from Margaret Atwood and made it the center point of the canvas. It was a toss up though because I soo love the Double Double cup, and I am a coffee addict!
I painted the Maple Leaf Wood Veneers with Distress Paint and put them aside to dry. I then used gel medium and two stencils to create a textured background. After the medium was dry ( I don't like the waiting part lol) I sponged on some colour using the Distress Oxides in Fired Brick and Vintage Photo. Also I edge everything in regular Vintage Photo. I fussy cut out my images from the card pack, and used the stamp set to create my little fox. I wrapped some black hemp twine I had in my stash around my canvass and glued the wood veneers onto it.
I know I'm repeating myself, but I just love this collection. I love all the details about Canada, and the sayings and phrases taken from our national anthem. And it really can be used for so many things!
Here are some detailed pics of my project so you can see some of the details up close.
Thank you for checking out all the projects from the Design Team and I hope we get to see some of your creations with this beautiful collection.
