Rather remiss...

I cant believe it is nearly three weeks since my last post! So much crafting has happened!
Here are some highlights...

Happy Day...

This 12x12 page I made at a class with Helen at ITC a couple of weeks ago.
The frame is made by transferring a design from paper to sticky back canvas.
The design is quite simple, it just needs a bit more bling (a project for another day!)

This picture is my sisters project from the same class...

I have also been very disorganised with my ATC's for the design team at 'Crafting Time'.

The two themes below are:

March Sketch:
Used Lilly of the Valley cut and colour designs as the centre piece...


Steam Punk Canvas:
After doing that class with Helen a couple of weeks ago, I decide it was time to play with sticky back canvas on my own!
I have some really nice double sided steam punk style pages (Graphic 45) with a travel theme.
I chose two distinct images and stuck them image side to the canvas. I scored the back with scissors and then soaked te paper in water.
After much wetting and rubbing, I finally revealed the image that I wanted.
I had a spare piece, so I cut it up to transfer an image of a plane and of a suit case.
I then decided to sew on ribbon, brocade, buttons and beads using different coloured embroidery silk.
The purple floss has been couched to hold it in place.
I have also used some printed papers from an old stash I found at my Mums.
Not absolutely sure about the final outcome, but I can see that working on canvas has lots of potential!
