Venetian Romance Canvas !

Hello ! Hope your weekend is good ? We are having a peaceful and quiet one so time to craft and blog ! I have been ( slowly ) working on this canvas this week and got it all glued together yesterday after days of fiddling with the layout ( I do that sometimes !! LOL !!! ). The canvas measures 12 x 12 inches and I have covered half of it with a piece of delicious Venetian Romance DSP - the other half is washed with a thin layer of acrylic paint. I used the two gorgeous stamps - Ex Libris and Postcard to create two platforms onto which photos or sentiments could be mounted ( my lovely friend Gina suggested that the canvas could be used as a cover for a wedding album and the initials of the couple be added to the label on the Ex Libris stamp - I thought this was a super idea ! )

I have used lots of stamps sets to collage the background and made a selection of paper flowers to add texture. The leaves were made using the Little Leaves Sizzlit die and I added some crystal effects so I could then shape the leaves to add more interest !
I shall be making this project with my class ladies very shortly - if you would like to join my classes and live in the Worcester / Malvern area please do contact me via the mail link on my profile above for more details ! 
Happy crafting - Hugs Jane xx
