Vintage Canvas Wall Hanging


This project has been sitting on my worktable (in pieces) for MONTHS!!  I finally decided I was going to quit 'thinking' about it and GET IT DONE!  It all started with this blank canvas . . .


I was visiting with my crafting friend, Lana (Blest With Stamps) and she was showing me how she had altered one of these canvas and I just had to give it a try.  Of course I wanted to do mine in a 'vintage' style and she introduced me to this adorable image by Sugar Nellie called 'Flora' (she's such an enabler) which would work perfectly to create a wall hanging for my vintage parlor!  



The items used to make this creation are as follows:
Paper:  White cs, Purely Pomegranate, Pear Pizazz, Mellow Moss and Paper Pizazz dp
Ink:  Versafine Black
Accessories:  Cheery Lynn Designs DL103 Italian Flourish doily die, Cheery Lynn Designs DL101 English Tea Party doily die, Cheery Lynn Designs B117 Fanciful Flourish die, Homemade flowers using a Spellbinders "Bitty Blossoms" dies, Butterfly was an RAK from Lana but came from Archivers, Kaiser pearls, Pearl Lace trim from Hobby Lobby, Prismacolor markers, pop dots, score pal, Webster Pages Bloomers silk flowers

A few challenges I'd like to share this creation with are:
Frilly and Funkie - Get Crafty with Canvas
It's All About the Vintage - Doilies
There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes - Doily
Addicted-to-Stamps - Pearls & Lace

I'm so glad I finally got around to putting this creation together and it looks fabulous hanging on the wall in my front parlor.  I hope you'll try something fun like this ... I know I didn't think I could created like this but I am having a fabulous time 'giving it a whirl'!
