Shabby Chic Canvas

Hi all


My second post for today as I have now finished my altered canvas and wanted to share with you all.

Do you remember the Shabby Chic flowers I made well some of those I wanted for this canvas so I shall call it my Shabby canvas








































I first started by thinly coating the canvas in a pale pink crackle paint once dried I stenciled a raised honey comb pattern in the middle with Martha Steward texture, I had to let this dry overnight, then painted again with pale pink glitter paint, I also added a strip of white fiber mesh this was the backing finished.
You can just see the texture and mesh below




Both the fairys and toadstool have been decoupaged and the wings have been glazed so have all the butterflys, I made the skirts out of gause and bling and added bling to the toadstool.



I folded the ribbon on the side and glued with a glue gun then add the big bling piece and pearls to finish

 Lace was tucked under the fairys and folded to make a ripple effect then added pearls to the ripples. the corner you can see one of my flowers with bling and pearls.


I cut the saying out of the same paper and surounded with pearls from my bead stash and a clear pearl drop.


The bird I found in a cheap shop and just had to have them, perfect for this canvas.
Just above the bird is a die cut bird cage I inked and added to the piece of fabric.


The heart was a present from a friend I wanted to add, the pin I made myself and another of my shabby flowers with  a piece of netting behind it.

To finish this off I added a metal butterfly and bling strand with more pearls for added texture.

I really enjoyed making this and hope you enjoyed seeing it even though it was a long post.

Thanks for popping in and leaving me your comments I do appriciate it.
