Wedding Canvas

My brother, Rob married the lovely Elaine in Brazil back in May 2012. I made them a canvas for Christmas, but am only able to give it to them today as they have been away over Christmas and the New Year.

I used a 16"x16" deep canvas, and the Basic Grey Serenade collection. I picked out three papers - 50 Pence, Peacock and Chemise together with some alphabet stickers for the date. I made the base by painting the canvas with Opal Jo Sonia's acrylic paint and tearing, inking and arranging the BG papers.

The photo was 20 x 25 cm, but trimmed down. I used a Buzz and Bloom 'On the Grapevine' large die cut chipboard frame, this was also painted with the opal paint and then spritzed with Cosmic Shimmer Mist - Ancient Copper and Tattered Angels Chalkboard Glimmer Mist - Teal High Heal.  There are a few splodges of Tim Holtz Distress Stain, on the frame and papers.

I added three clusters of paper roses, cherry blossoms and leaves - these were all from Wild Orchid Crafts.
My title was made with Amy Tangerine American Crafts Everyday printed chipboard alphabet stickers.

To the flowers and frame I added some Glitz Stickles - Ancient Copper. I used a few flat-backed pearls and some pale blue organza ribbon with a heart hat pin.

I added a few very tiny blue flowers with leaves here and there on the chipboard vine frame.

Congratulations to Rob and Elaine, thanks for looking.
