Crafts: Mixed Media Canvas: Love

It was a busy weekend, one of my friends returned from Barcelona after spending more than 7 months there. He showed up on a surprise visit in between the making of this canvas. It was a very nice evening and he got me a wooden spoon which he had wood burned (really cool!).



This one costs me about two days, I didn’t use my heat gun and let everything dry naturally.

As you can see, I used Crackle accents on the letters and the hearts for a nostalgic look. This was also my chance to use my Lindy’s Stamp Gang inks. I wish you could see it in real life, it has the most beautiful shimmer.

The (long) list of supplies is on the bottom of this post & beneath the Youtube video!

I almost ruined it by using Dylusions Calypso Teal for the flowers & doily instead of Inka Gold Turquoise, I am much happier with the way it turned out now.
