I hope you’ve been enjoying the blog hop for the ten Artisan Finalists who did not make the design team. We’re on day 4 now, and I have a 3-D project to share with you.
This project consisted of three canvases. I first painted the canvases with gesso, and then used Mod-Podge to adhere the dsp to the canvas. I then covered the top with Mod-Podge as well. I sanded the edges to smooth them and give them a slightly distressed look.
The largest canvas has the name Olivia on it. She must be my fictional daughter as we don’t have any Olivia’s in our house, but I wanted to use a six-letter name because I thought it would fit so nicely on the canvas. Since we don’t get these projects back from Stampin’ Up!, I decided to just use a random name and I think Olivia is a pretty name, don’t you? 🙂
The blue part of the flower was made with a Canvas Creations sheet, which I spritzed with Island Indigo reinker mixed with rubbing alcohol. I also die cut a layer of burlap.
My two daughters have asked that I make similar canvases for their rooms, now that I’ve finished the decorations for the fake Olivia. It wasn’t really a hard project to make — just a little time consuming, so I do plan on making more of these.
Are you ready to venture on and visit the next blog? Breelin Renwick will have a project that you don’t want to miss. Or you could work your way backwards and see Wendy Weixler’s awesome project.
Enjoy your Tuesday evening! Thanks for stopping by!
