Another Altered Canvas

I loved doing the altered canvas so much at the class I went to recently that I have done another one by myself and THIS time ALL in Stampin' Up! products - except the canvas of course.  I made ALL of the flowers myself and coloured the texture paste and gesso with our inks too.  I love this so much I'm going to enter it as well into the Just Add Ink challenge - Just Add Bright Colour this month!!  

As I am a very much neutral colour person, this was an adventurous foray into bright and colourful scrapbooking - and it just looks so lovely, so I have plans for another in red and black........ stay tuned! 

It doesn't look too colourful in this photo but the blues are all there!!  I featured mostly Island Indigo, and added Pool Party and Midnight Muse.  There is some white stamping too to coordinate with our clothing.

The title (from Baby Prints) is stamped with Island Indigo on a apothecary accent framelit.

Island Indigo, Pool Party and Midnight Muse flowers with Antique brad centres.  These flowers were created using the scallop circle punches, and the blossom builder punch.  

 A variety of flowers here - some with punches, and some with fabric twisted and rolled to create flowers, and also the paper daisies.  In between are some satin roses and sweetest stem die for leaves.

As a final embellishment there is some seam binding ribbon coming from the flower clusters and some doilies both stamped and from the Big Shot under the arrangements too.


  1. Wow Julia, I swear your in my head or we share some brain space LOL! I'm prepping stuff for Brissie and those same toys are on my table- gesso,stamps, canvases, reinker LOL! Maybe its the scrapbooker in us both where we have visited these toys before, perhaps before our SU journey. Love what you've done totally gorgeous!

  2. Hello you clever, clever lady. I love your creativity and the thought that you put into your altered canvas. The choice of colours is beautiful. Can you tell that I LOVE it? Pauline
