So In Love Canvas

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by today.  I'm sharing a little canvas that I made for my daughter using Art Anthology, Xyron and a Canvas Corp canvas.

First I gathered all of my supplies I was going to use on this. I used a 4" x 4" burlap canvas, Art Anthology Dimensional Velvet Paint (Pink & Fiji), Xyron glue stick and foam squares, Wendy Vecchi stamp and Ranger Archival Ink (black)

Step 1 - Stamp lightly on a manila tag with the background stamp.

Step 2 - Paint a light coat of both the paint colors over the tag.  Once your tag is covered you can stamp whatever sentiment you want on it. 

Step 3 - Using the Xyron glue stick place glue on tissue paper then adhere to the canvas.

Step 4 - Paint your canvas using both the colors that you used on the tag.

Step 5 - I was just curious how this would work so.....I took the pink paint and painted it on some seam binding, then I heat set it.  It made the ribbon a little "crunchy" but I liked it!

 Step 6 - Now it's time to put it all together.  I placed the photo on the canvas using the Xyron foam squares.  I then tied the seam binding around the canvas is a couple of bows.  Using a Idea-ology memo pin I placed that through the ribbon and cut out the sentiment from the manila tag.

You can get all of the supplies to create this canvas at The Scrapbooking Studio online store HERE!

 Supplies Used:
Xyron - Glue Stick & Foam Squares
Art Anthology - Dimensional Velvet Paint (pink & fiji)
