Makin' it Vintage ... Creating on Canvas

{by Carrie Ferrier}

Happy Tuesday! I've got 2 projects to share with you today.

For this first layout, I desperately wanted to cut out parts of this paper by Pink Paislee and use it on my page, but the white in the design was too stark for the vintage layout I was creating.

The perfect solution to my dilemia, was to use a combo of Vibez Penny Pincher and Spritz Mudpie on the black/white floral paper to give it the vintage feel I was looking for.
Check it out.



This second project was an absolute blast to make. I can say without a doubt that Shimmerz products are FABULOUS to use on canvas!
Before doing anything else, I Spritzed the canvas with Vibez Hot Fudge. I then painted the paper house, tree stem and flower tree with a combo of Antique Lace and Butter Cream. I then Spritz the house and tree pieces with Vibez Snow Storm.
After all the handstitching and adhering of the paper pieces was complete, I finished it off by Spritzing the whole project with a light coat of Tuscan Sun.
