Dream and Imagine Canvas's by Shona

Hello Shimmerz Fans! Today I have a fun canvas to share. This is a house warming gift for my daughter and there actually is a set of them. They are special because I have used some antique spoons from my late mom and lots of antique bits and pieces that were given to me.

I attached almost everything to the canvas and gave it all a coat of gesso with some crackle paste for the background. I love the way the Tuscan Sun, Chick a dee, Terra Cotta and Bamboo Leaf Spritz’s just seeped into all the cracks. That is my background. I heat set between colors. I love the antique door handle I added to the top.

For finishing touches I have added some of the NEW gorgeous Creameez in Great Fruit and Get Glowing to some of the embellishments. The new Creameez is darker colors than Inkligz and are much creamier when water is added to activate them. I also added touches of Inkligz in Im Not Limon and Sun Kissed with little splats of Brass Knuckles in the end.

Here is the set….I hope they look fun and add some color to her new kitchen.
