Sarah Packer – Home Decor Canvas

Today we have the lovely Sarah with her first project for the Design Team (which I might have a cheeky eye on for my own craft room!)

Sarah says:

I am so excited to be sharing my first Design Team project with you and am honoured to have been asked to join such a fab group of talented ladies.

I bought this little canvas about 2 years ago thinking it’d be lovely to make a little something to go up on the wall, but, I chucked it in to a box for later and that’s where it stayed until I had a tidy up a couple of weeks back and found it!!

I saw the lovely camera cut file and I had a light bulb moment for the little canvas!  I sprayed the background with some blue Heidi Swapp Colour Shine spray and left it to dry. I then used a Kaisercraft words background stamp to add a little something to the background.

I resized the camera to fit the size of the canvas and cut it on a piece of paper from Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm blue spotty paper and then backed the middle section with a pink star print paper from the same collection.

I typed the quote ….because every picture tells a story… on my ancient type writer as I wanted to give it a vintage feel. Once I had cut the quote to the size I wanted, I inked the edges with a dark pink ink pad to make it stand out a little.

I embellished the corner of the camera and canvas with some flower die cuts from an older Crate Paper collection, I can’t remember which one as I added them in to my die cuts box some time ago with no packaging! And the little yellow spotty heart in the middle of the camera was also from the same collection.  I punched a butterfly out of white card and painted it with Shimmerz Texturez paste in Gold Mine. Once it was dry I popped it up on a foam pad to give it a bit of dimension on the canvas.

I then fussy cut the little bird from a Cocoa Vanilla Studio Bohemian Dreams sticker and added the blue chipboard heart from the Free Spirit collection. The little blue heart is from the middle of the lens of the camera die cut.

Then a couple of sparkly enamel dots for a bit of bling to finish it all off and voila! A pretty canvas ready to hang on the wall using a lot of old stash!
