Canvas for Mum

I found a lovely challenge blog; A Vintage Journey. Their theme is celebrate and thought that I'd have a go with a canvas. I think this is my second, love the size that allows much more to be made. The canvas is for Mum to celebrate her, she's got the big C. A Vintage Journey also has a very special Christmas Give-Away


I used:
Tim Holtz flower dies, flourish mask, honeycomb stencil, Distress inks, Distress Crackle paint, Liquid pearls and silver Perfect Pearls, stamps
Cottage Cuts flourish die, Prima Marketing beads, Liquitex modelling paste, Itsy Bitsy stamens and embossing folder.

Love and hugs
Maarit

  14. Not sure if my 1st comment got published. I had not finished typing, when it just disappeared..think it's my laptop not blogger though. This is so lovely & delicate. I was surprised to see that subtle honeycomb on the background. Would never have thought to add this but it's lovely, a nice touch with the gorgeous flowers & pearls. It's a treasure & your Mom will love it too. A wonderful way to celebrate her. I wish her the very best of recovery & hope that you are close enough to provide a shoulder & support as she needs it. Best wishes to you both for a Merry Christmas, God Bless & Big hugs to both of you. TFS
