Today I am sharing the canvas that I made as a gift for my friend’s Silver Wedding Anniversary. She doesn’t like fussy but she does like something which is unusual and classy. Having recently made some canvases I stuck to that idea and also decided that I’d stay away from using their names and date of their marriage so it was different. I guess you could say less is more.
I used two colours of Paper Artsy Acrylic Paint for the base, using a wide piece of masking tape to separate the colour, it didn’t take long to dry so I could easily apply a second coat for coverage.
I had some Kaisercraft paper left over from my previous canvas projects so I used this to make my lettering. I decided to cut 3 corners using a spellbinders die but it didn’t look very nice so I used another colour, cut out another three and used these as a shade and even though you cannot see these on the canvas they look really nice.
The largest piece on the canvas is the rose which I cut out using the Spellbinders Create a Rose Die I used plain white card and then hand coloured the rose petals in two shades of Promarkers and the effect was lovely and I was ever so pleased, with the effect. That rose became the 4th corner of my project and I have to say it looked lovely and my friend was thrilled with it. I hope you like what I made.
The materials I used were as follows
- Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Acrylic Paint in Vintage Lace and Moonlight
- Promarkers in Lavender and soft Mauve
- Kaisercraft paper “Flattered” from the Key to My Heart collection
