Mixed Media Canvas

I like having decorations up around the house that I have crafted myself.  I decided to make a canvas to hang up instead of one of the pictures that is normally there.

I am entering my canvas into the following challenges:
Eureka Stamps - Button It Up
Love to Create - 3D Creation
All That Stickles - Happy Holidays
PINspirational Challenge - Photo Inspiration (circles)

I have checked these challenges and can't see anything to say Cards Only so I'm hoping I have that correct!

I covered the canvas with gesso as a base.  I applied a quarter of a serviette using Mod Podge and then embellished it with Stickles - Gold, Stickles - Crystal, Glossy Accents, Green Buttons, red rhinestones, blue star rhinestones, washi tape (around sides).

The green buttons are some from my Mum's button box which have shanks on them which makes them too high for cards.  By punching a hole in the canvas so that the shank goes through to the back they were a perfect embellishment!


  1. Great canvas! I know it will look beautiful hanging in your home.
