Gardenia Canvas

Hi there,

I just resumed work after taking a month’s break and now I’m all into crafty stuff. Tbh nothing beats that feeling!! Today I am sharing with you all the canvas I did this week. I have listed down the items I have used individually as it’s pretty simple.

Things Used:

– Recollections Tattered and Worn Cardstock Paper
– Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads (Black Soot, Evergreen Bough, Dried Marigold & Mustard Seed)
– Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stains (Peacock Feathers)
– Sizzix Thinlits Die Set 8PK – Butterflies, Intricate #659971
– Stamps by Stampers Anonymous
– Perfect Pearls (Bronze)
– Recollections Flowers
– Recollection Adhesive Faux Pearls
– Prima Marketing Glistening Vines Silver
– Embossed Plastic Leaves (Picked up from some local store in Riyadh)

I darkened the entire background using Black Soot Distress Ink. Then picked up some background stamps and put those down randomly using Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls. When I was all satisfied with the background look I hopped down into embellishments. 
Hope you all liked it! Happy Crafting!

Pink Floral Canvas

Hi folks!

It’s March already! I can’t believe I haven’t posted almost anything in the last two months. I definitely need to organize this month. Anyway enough about me and let’s get to the point.

This personalized canvas has tons of layering and items on it. First the background is a random cardstock from one the paper pads. I have actually lost the main cover of it so I can’t recall the name. I distressed the entire paper to match it the photography. Then I took a Tim Holtz Stencil and add a white texture paste on few areas of the pattern paper. Btw it’s homemade and the texture is so smooth and dries up so quickly. You won’t even believe what it is made of! I will type up the recipe in my next post. It’s super easy to make and I bet you will certainly have everything at your home. Back to the canvas now, after adding the paste I sprayed using Distress Stain Spray. 


For the embellishments, I have used Dusty Attic Frame and ‘Little Moments’ chipboard, They are my new favorites! I painted them using Distress Paints. The frame is painted on with Antique Linen and phrase is by Black Soot.


Next I added few Recollection and Prima flowers. Butterflies, leaves and flourish branch are cut by Silhouette Cameo.

I hope you like today’s post! I am thinking of coming few reviews which hopefully I will be posting soon! 


Toddles for now!

Winged Beauties Memory Canvas

Hi, everyone!

I’ve been selected as a new DT member of Crafters’ Palette and I am thrilled to be a part of the team. For my very first post, I have chosen a personalized canvas.

I made a photo canvas using the bunch of items. At first, I painted the sides of my plain white canvas using some Distress Paint in Walnut Stain. Then I took some patterned cardstock, and distressed iit using some Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo Distress Inks around the edges. I then used a Script Background Stamp on different areas of my background to give it a vintage feel. Once the paint was all dried up, I added the patterned cardstock to the canvas with some liquid glue.


To give a bit of a dimension, I layered two pieces of cardstock behind my photograph, and gave them some definition by inking and distressing the edges.

Next thing was to add the embellishments! I painted my title using Walnut Stain Distress Paint. I also added some flowers to my canvas, and a few metal embellishments. I die-cut some Winged Beauties Butterflies using my Sizzix Big Shot, and stuck everything in place.



I hope you enjoyed my project. See you next time!

Vintage Apology Card

Hello!

I’m back after way too long and this time I am trying to manage my schedule better than the last year. I hope it goes well! Anyway, so here I am posting my very first project for January & this is my current FAV. I liked how it turned out!

First of all, I have used Ranger Watercolor Paper. Honestly speaking if you are working with Distress Inks. You have to give them a TRY! You will definitely see a major difference between using an regular paper and a watercolor paper. Also, the one thing I liked about Ranger Watercolor Paper is that it has two sides one is smoother and other is the textured one. Here I went with the textured side, distressed it with Vintage Photo and did the edges with Black Soot. Then layered a Tim Holtz Latticework Stencil on top and inked it with Walnut Stain. Next I sprayed it with Distress Stain in Gathered Twigs. This was my first time using Spray Stains and I loved how they make the entire background pop. I absolutely love the effect!

For the metal embellishments, I chose Prima’s clock and Tim Holtz’s compass.


Leafy branches and cog are Sizzix dies. I have Distress Painted the two branches in Walnut Stain.

Top-right framelits are again from Sizzix. I have over-layered two frames. I have used black glitter sheet for the base and on the top comes the text. It has been die-cut on a plain paper which has been later distressed in Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain

In the end I have glued some paper flowers in Maroon which went totally well with the vintage look. 

I hope you like it. Drop in some love in the comments below!

Mini Canvas in PINK!

Hello crafty fellows!

I hope you are enjoying your winter holidays! Today I am posting a mini canvas that was presented as Christmas gift. The lady wanted something colorful with an name initial on it and this is what I ended up with.

I have used PCW word art file in here. You can find the link HERE. The set comes with 4 different texts. I just love the chalky effect of it!

First of all, I painted the mini canvas using Distress Paint in ‘Picked Raspberry’ then I stamped the canvas using one of the Tim Holtz Anonymous Stamp. Then added few flowers, name initial and PCW word art.

I hope you like today’s post & have an amazing new year.

Configuration Box

Hello Crafty People!

I hope you’re doing fab! I am here with a Configuration Book Shadow Box. It’s a Tim Holtz Configuration Box which is about 6 x 9 x 1.25 inches and has 6 compartments.

So, firstly I covered the entire box using MME Pretty Things 6×6″ cardstock. I adore this paper pad. It’s so vintage and floraly. I simply can’t get over these papers.


The paper was 6×6″ so I overlapped two sheets and added a lace over it. Lace has been distressed by Walnut Stain Paint. Flowers are randomly picked from Prima and Recollection flowers packs.

Here comes my favorite part – THE INSIDE. Again, on the left I have overlapped two sheets covered the joined with the distressed lace. The sides of the box and edges of every cut out sheet is also distressed by the same paint.

I didn’t cover it much, as the papers were itself gorgeous. So, just added few flowers and metal embellishments here and there.

I have used PCW word art file in there. You can find the link HERE. The set comes with 4 different texts. I just love this set because it almost goes with every project I make.

Framelits dies are by Sizzix. On the left compartment, hanging metal embellishment is by Prima. I love the little crown at the bottom. On the right, I went with the mini jar with silver glitter and text in it.

I hope you like today’s post! See you next time!
