Blooming Art Canvas by Alison (Craftytrog)

Hello Stampers! I'm here again, to share a canvas with you today.

I used a 7x5 inch canvas board, which I first prepped with Studio Gesso.
Next, I added some scraps of book paper, & stamped the flourish from the Flourish Swirls A5 Plate, using Sepia Archival Ink.

Then I used a brayer to apply Aqua & Pool Paint Dabber. Just enough to cover the canvas, without obliterating my stamped swirls.
I stenciled some hexagons, using Pool Paint Dabber, & some DecoArt warm white paint.

I randomly stamped the script from Caligraphic Mat 11 with Sepia Archival, & the Mini Lattice Wire with Teal Archival.
Then I stamped the stems(3), flowers(3) & words from the Flower Blooms A6 Plate, using Sepia Archival. I cut them all out, edged the words with Sepia, & glued them to the canvas with Studio Matt Medium. I applied Matt Medium all over the canvas, but brushed lightly so I didn't smudge the background stamping.
I finished my canvas by inking the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, & adding some turquoise buttons & a gem.

Thanks for looking,
Alison xxx

I love the way the buttons pick up the colour of the canvas. Brown and blue just look terrific together too. Love this canvas: clour combo, composition - everything sings! Julie Ann xx
