Remember these? I realized that they would be perfect to make up some lovely couture canvas designs. Yesterday I shared one canvas that I made out of one of the other flower petals (also shared a video tutorial on how I made it as well). Today I'm sharing another canvas using some pink/cream petals from my stash.
I used a variety of papers from the Maja, Vintage Summer Basics and Vintage Spring Basics collections. I used the center of the 'March 1st' paper (from Vintage Spring Basics) for the body of my couture figure as well as the pretty Daffodil images in the corners of the paper for my canvas background. In the center of the canvas I used '1910' from Vintage Summer Basics, and then cut out a heart shape from '1909-bs' also from the Vintage Summer collection.
I always feel that the Maja papers are beautifully complimented by Dusty Attic chipboard, in this case I used a new chipboard design called 'Elegant Swirls #3' to top my canvas. I used a stencil called 'Butterfly Collage' that was designed by a lovely and super talented friend of mine, Janene Meyerowitz (yep, that's right, owner of The Scrapbook Diaries) to make the wings behind the figure and to add the lattice design in the corners. I used the 12x12 stencil for this, but she also has this gorgeous stencil available in a 6x6 size as well :)
Running down the side of the canvas I used a Dusty Attic chipboard piece called 'Branch #3" that I just gave a coat of Gesso and inked with some Ingvild Bolme 'Moss Garden' chalk ink, and some Branch Bark ink by her, as well. In the bottom right corner I added a corner chippie from the DeVine Frame Set (Dusty Attic). The dress design was made entirely of a couple of the petals I had from an old, old Prima box. (I'm sure you can use petals from just about any silk/fabric flower you have in your stash).
I sketched out a couture figure to create my canvas design and saved the page as a template. Just right click on the photo and 'save image as' to your computer if you would like to try using my sketch for one of your projects.
If you are looking for Maja Design papers as well as Dusty Attic chipboard, Janene at The Scrapbook Diaries has loads uploaded to her online store (how's that for one stop shopping! :)
