Live in the Moment - Deep Edge Canvas

Hi Friends

Here to share another altered project with you this week. Created for Heartfelt Creations. I had a 10x10 deep edge canvas calling my name  (LOL) have you ever had that happen, haha...and i thought i should do something with it.  I started out using some gesso and texture paste along with a brick stencil; Used Art Anthology mists to create this gorgeous canvas.  The photo is of my hubby; lots of die work on this, even though it doesnt look that way, i cut triples of the some of the dies to make them extra sturdy to take the mixed media.

Here are some detail photos;

wildwood florals were used for the flower, the leaf vine is the Classic Rose Vine, i love it. I added the flourish from Creative Embellishments and its perfect for these flower clusters.

Seriously, is this Border from the Heartfelt Love collection not amazing! It wraps around that photo frame so beautifully and i did three of them glued them together to make it strong for the mixed media product.  With the added mist and gesso you would think its metal, but its not, its paper!

Here is the finished canvas! 

the photo corners on the left side are also from Creative Embellishments

Happy Scrapping!

Instructions: Prep 10x10 deep edge canvas with gesso; heat set to dry. Using texture paste and stencil apply to sides and random areas of the top; do not worry with the 8x8 corrugated cardboard will go as it will just be covered up, so concentrate on outside edges and sides of canvas. Heat set to dry if you want to speed things up.  When dry using the Art Anthology mists Sand and Peacock Feathers to color the canvas; I also used the cowboy glaze to add additional color. Gold Alchemy wax was used too. Do the same to an 8x8 piece of corrugated cardboard

Stamp and cut out 3 each of the heartfelt love borders on canson watercolor paper. Adhere together to make the die thicker, paint with gesso; and apply same techniques as above canvas.

 Ink the tim holtz photo frame with vintage photo; dab some sand mist on as well as gold alchemy wax. Do same for the chipboard title.

Stamp and cut using coffee archival ink classic rose die and stamp and cut out two sets of the 9 set of wildwood florals and two sets of the trio set of florals. Color with distress inks starting with vintage photo in the center; outline with antique linen and lightly do edges with pistachio.

Pierce the flowers the paper piercer to make room for the gold stamens; mold flowers and three sets of the classic rose vine, one will be left flat as shown on right side of the canvas. Attach stamens after molding flowers and add some diamond dust and crystal clear for detail.
 Wrap the Heartfelt Love border die around the photo frame as shown, adhere down. The longer border die will go just under the corrugated cardboard on the right. Begin to assemble the canvas placing cardboard down first, then photo frame; add chipboard to top and bottom right corner. Create clusters of the wildwood florals using the classic rose on top of the vine chipboard. Insert 4x7 photo into the photo frame. Detail rest of canvas with gold alchemy wax and crystal clear. Feel free to add cowboy glaze for detail on bricks if needed. Complete canvas as shown.
