The moment you have in your Heart...

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I have had a very productive day today, started a few projects and finished my canvas which has taken me a couple of days to finished.  I hope you have all had a lovely day too.  It sure has been quite warm today and very breezy, I am sure we will have some more rain tonight.

Here is my canvas, I hope you like it!


A4 canvas which I have painted first with Gesso, once this was dry I then stencilled Imagination Crafts Grungy Ledger and Heart Scroll with Modelling past, added the lace, buttons, hearts and butterflies. 
 2 coats of Gesso was the next step and once this was dry painted with white acrylic with a touch of brown.
The next step was to re-stencil with Chalkies Limestone.
The words Love and Roses are wooden tiles which I have rubbed Gold Gilding Wax over then glued down.


In my graphics programme I added the sentiment to the backing paper from Tattered Lace CD, printed this off and cut it down, rubbed gold gilding wax around the edges before placing onto the canvas.


Inside the stencilled heart scoll I added gold leaves, 2 stick pins and dusted the roses with gilding wax.
To finish off I rubbed gilding wax lightly over the lock and key, buttons, hearts, butterflies and around the edge of the canvas.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
