About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Day 73 - A Few Embellishments!

Evening. Having made the flowers for my canvas, I felt I needed a few other embellishments and a sentiment or two.

I bought these heart and butterfly wooden embellishments ages ago in The Range. They've been sat in a little tub just waiting for the right project. And I think they'll work just right on the canvas.
I painted them with Pebeo Pearl Silk paint, and stamped with Walnut Stain Ink using Sheena's A Little Bit Sketchy Best Friend Swirls, and Splats and Stains and Journal Jottings from Crafter's Companion Textures collection.
My original idea for the canvas was to use word stamps - and I decided on three from Crafter's Companion's Destinations Life is a Journey stamp set - PAUSE, RELAX, UNWIND!
I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink, and didn't put the stamps on any blocks. The were inked up on my craft mat, and the card pressed down on top - this gave the border effect around the edge of the words.

So now it's all ready to assemble together.
