Linnie Bloom and fabulous canvas shapes


OMG ..my first ever real canvas attempt... sure hope you like it.
It all started with canvas shapes from Linnie Blooms... and 
I knew exactly what I wanted to do with these really cool canvas trees and leaves.

I started with a 8 1/2"x 12" canvas from the dollar store.
I used paint strips on the background to start. 
Then I mask with gesso for more texture and then added more paint splatter.
Next I used Paper House papers.. plywood and  pine forest... rustic and ripped 
it and edges with ranger ink.
More layers with some burlap, strip of cork and a section of Creative Embellishments accent.
Phot was placed under the accent a bit and the 
painted trees cover the base of the photo also.


I put a cute rubon on a piece of paper, ribbed and inked and applied
 to top right corner of all the layered textures.
I added and metal accent and a twine tied metal keys accent.
In the top upper left corner I inked the leaves, doodled spines and added buttons.


Using Cricut I cut the title "best memories".

Be sure to visit Linnie Blooms blog and store.. amazing craeative

the fabulous canvas shapes and many other unique accents.
