I May not Be Perfect- Canvas Corp Brands

Feb 14, 2015

Happy Saturday.  The snow is still here as are the cold temps, I really shouldn't be complaining as we had a green Christmas, it just gives me more time to get in my scrapbook room and have some fun.

Back in December i shared that i was invited to join the Canvas Corp Brands Crew as a Market Contributor and our first assignment was to do a 4x4 Canvas. Today is the day we have the chance to share it with you. 
We were to design i to it depicted our style. I love the Tattered Angels Mist, and have for a long time.  I have tried many mists over the years and none ( for me anyway) blend so beautifully as Tattered Angels does.

I covered this canvas with gesso, then cheese cloth applied gel medium. Used some whipped spackle to add texture. 


 I use beads alot in my flowers for Heartfelt Creations and i have used them on some of my mixed media projects and i have a huge collection of them here in my scrapbook space. It was fitting for me to add them to this canvas.  I have used the mini bottles in the past on some projects and thought they would be perfect to hold my beads.


Although i love white space, I also love chunky.  Chunky layers filled with chipboard, cardboard, canvas, burlap anything i can add to the layers to have one focal point.  I also love mixed media, i just dont like the mess it causes, LOL!!


I used some of the canvas corp burlap; the bottom tag is cut using the Heartfelt Luggage and Tag Die; and the sentiment is from Gypsy Moments which i felt was very fitting for my style.  
"As much as I struggle with perfection, I am not perfect; I was not made to be; I accept my style and my uniqueness as a part of who i am and who God has meant for me to be. "

If you like my Canvas, i would love it if you headed over to the blog, scrolled down to the bottom of the post, and clicked on #16, there should be a heart in the upper right hand corner that will submit your vote.
