vintage love mixed media canvas


Good morning! This week I have been asked to guest design at Try It On Tuesday, where the challenge this week is include a photo, vintage or modern.
I have created a canvas and used as my centre piece, a napkin which contained a vintage photo as part of it's pattern. I just decoupaged it onto the canvas.


I then rubbed gelatos all around the outside of the image to the edge of the canvas and smeared it together with a water brush.

I then stamped the words 'love' around the image and added texture paste through a stencil to get the dots. I finished off the bottom of the canvas by wrapping around some ribbon and lace.


The top is finished off with some netting and flowers.


The netting is held in place with some buttons on each side of the canvas and one on top, which are glued into place.


I am entering this in at the following:
Thank you for looking.

Beautiful canvas piece! I love that you used a napkin and how you blended the edges in with the gelatos and then framed it out with the embossing paste, lace and netting.
