Hello there lovelies!!! I was really happy to hear that Canvas Corp Brands wanted to keep me in their team for another year. I am really enjoying being part of the team – what an inspiring and fun bunch of people they are!!! Here´s to old and new DT colleagues and fun creative times with them!!!
Remember last year when I created this 4×4 inch canvas for the DT introduction? Well, I thought it might be time to create another one for 2016 ( I know I´m a bit late with posting this 4×4, but better late than never, eh?). Last year was all about pink, this year I went a shade darker. It´s purple I felt drawn towards to! I know a few of my scrappy friends will raise an eyebrow or two after reading my color choice..lol! BUT, it felt good to go purple this year. So I did!
Here are the materials I used for my canvas:
The canvas is a actually a canvas board in 4×4 inch size, as I didn´t happen to have a „real“ canvas in that size at home. I might actually consider framing the canvas board behind a shadow frame before hanging it onty my wall.
About the materials: I used one piece of the Archival Cast Figureheads, 2 silver feathers, silver yarn, Frantage Glitter Mix, Micro Beads, various shared of purple spray ink ( Glimmer Mist Tea Cup, Glimmer Mist Cranberry Zing, Glimmer Mist Black Cherry & Plain Jane Baseboard Iris) a black pen, Gesso and Texture paste. There is also a chipboard piece from my very old stash and a hand made clay rose. And that´s pretty much it. I did a couple of layers of misting and gessoing before I was satisfied with the result. Here is what I ended up with:
So this year I am going for color. I´ve figured I might as well accept the fact that I am (at least at the moment) a color girl. I adore the soft and white layouts, when other crafty peeps create them (just look at my fave layouts at Pinterest, and you see what I mean) BUT I cannot create such. I end up using bold colors. So bold & colors it be for 2016!
Here ´s to another creative year with Canvas Corp Brands! I am very much enjoying being part of this team! Make sure you stop by the CCB blog on regular basis, so much inspiration and beautiful artwork is being shared over there by my lovely DT colleagues!!!
