LIVE LAUGH LOVE- ART!

Awhile back Jen from Redberry Barn emailed me and asked if I would be interested in receiving a Canvas Corp. Kit. “UM, YEAH!” were my thoughts. I have seen some of the cute KA-UTE! stuff Jen has posted on her blog with Canvas Corp. products, so needless to say I was excited. I have made TWO fun crafts using Canvas Corp. products. One craft using all Canvas Corp. stuff and the other one you see BE-LOW.

Here is the one craft I made using “some” SUPER CUTE PRODUCTS from
Canvas Corp.

First I taped down strips of tape on a 11×14 canvas board, to make stripes. Then with black acrylic paint I used a stencil brush and stenciled in the lines with the paint.

 once the paint was dry, I removed the tape and added some red glitter glue over some of the black stripes.

I added silver thumb tacks to each corner.. I love embellishing and adding dimension and layers. I just pushed the tacks into the wood. I also wrapped some hounds-tooth ribbon I had around the bottom and tied a knot.

I used the Canvas Corp “LIVE LAUGH LOVE” scrap paper and used my Cricut to cut out a large heart, I then roughed up the edges with scissors.I mod podged the heart onto the dry canvas.

Next I used one of the DARLING Canvas Corp. zebra tags, black jute, and silver clothes pin to  add more layers and dimension. I cut out a smaller heart from my Cricut and added glitter glue and silver glitter over the glue for a fun effect.

I love the final product and I don’t know what it is but it reminds me of NO DOUBT’S LAMB collection…. or something No Doubt would make if she crafted… HA HA, I make myself laugh. It also reminded me of my sissy so I gave it to her and she was THE very HAPPY recipient of this product. All though it looks Valentines-ish its really not. However, you can make it and use it for Valentines. P.S. I think it would look cute in a young girl pre-teens room.

THANKS SO MUCH FOR stopping by and thanks again jen, and Canvas Corp.
