'Dream' a new canvas for Scraps of Elegance

Hello my lovely friends....dropping in today to share a canvas I created with
the beautiful kit from Scraps of Elegance.


As you may have noticed, each designer at Scraps of Elegance has a kit named after them. 
The kit for this month is called 'Lisa's Sweet September' ....named after me!

Here is the kit and some of the add ons I used...

This is only the second canvas I have ever created! Why I'm not sure, as I really enjoyed making it and it really isn't that complicated. This small 8x8 canvas is the perfect size for beginners.
Just a few easy steps: 
1. I primed the canvas with white gesso, let it dry and then using the stencil that came in the Creativity add on, I added white crackle paste and left that to dry overnight. 
2. I added some of my favourite Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays randomly over the canvas allowing some of the colors to drip down from where my photo will be.  Once dry, I did some stamping with black archival ink over the background. 
3. Using the beautiful embossing powders also from the add on, I embossed some 2 Crafty Chipboard pieces, the butterflies and the title Dream. I LOVE how they turned out, the copper looks so real with it's hints of green 'rust'. You can see which pieces I used here.
4. The last step was to add my embellishments - flowers from the Floral add on, my photograph and glue everything down....voila!! 

I hope you have enjoyed my project and feel inspired to create your own canvas.
This one was the perfect size to start with.

Happy crafting!
Hugs, Lisa


  1. I Reckon you should deffo do more in the looks really gorgeous. Almost like an outside wall with the terracotta/natural colours you've used! And the chippy! YUM! It makes me want to reach out and touch it all, it's so tactile. ONE DAY I reckon, computers will be able to let you do just that - meanwhile don't mind me while I sit and drool for a bit;)!!!!!

  2. Sigh.... this is incredibly beautiful! Congrats on the Lisa kit too!

  3. Absolutely stunning! I love the textures and the use of colors! You are great in whatever you are creating!
