The kit contains a package of metal adornments from Flying Unicorn including a stunning three dimensional heart that I built my canvas around.
I'm so pleased with the way the flying heart turned out. I started by coloring the metal with a Copic marker (R46 Strong Red), then added the Scrap FX Ornate Wings and some white feathers from my stash that I trimmed into shape once they were adhered to the rest.
To achieve the texture on the chipboard wings I coated them in embossing ink and Platinum UTEE. I melted the UTEE and let it cool slightly, then pressed a stamp into the surface. And voila, it bumped the visual interest up considerably.
For the background of the canvas, I started out by dabbing on generous amounts of white Gesso to seal the canvas and create texture. While the gesso was still wet I pressed in some silver Pop! Micro Beads. I then misted the whole thing with Tattered Angels Plain Jane in Pink and dried it thoroughly. I wanted lots of texture around the picture of Evan and our three boys, so I applied liberal amounts of molding paste, and I sprinkled Tim Holtz Distress Stickles Dry Glitter over it while it was still wet (you can see some in the picture below, but it is really apparent in real life). I love this stuff, its chunky and gritty and oh-so-cool. Once the molding pasted was dry I sprayed on Tattered Angels Plain Jane Rosey, which was included in the Embellishment Add-On, followed by TA Plain Jane in Light Blue through the Crafter's Workshop Cosmic Swirl mask. I finished the background off with some Black Gesso from the Main Kit and Black Gelato around the outside.
I used Gelatos in pink, blue, white and black to color my Pink Paislee wooden alphas.
I had a lot of fun making this canvas - I hope you've enjoyed looking at it.
All the best!
