GIU day 2 Unity wall canvas


Welcome back for day two of GIU week! Some of you may recognize this wall hanging because I made one almost identical on a 4x6 canvas a while back, but I loved it so much I wanted a larger version for my wall. To start this project I sprayed my canvas with Tattered Angel's glimmer mist in coffee, bronze and copper. I then cut the vase from my Walk in my garden cricut cartridge. Next I sprayed my Prima flowers, some with Maya Mist and some with Tim Holtz alcohol inks and Clear Snap's shimmer spritz and let them dry. That beautiful bling is from Prima as well, I just cut it apart and repositioned it to look like the flower stems. My Unity sentiment is called Blossom and you can get it  {HERE}, I layered it with a Spellbinders die, stamped with Momento tuxedo black ink and blinged it up a bit with Jolee's hotfix gems. Last I punched my large butterflies two times each with my Tonic punch and layered them to give a 3d effect and a bunch of little butterflies from an older EK punch. All of my DP is Stella Rose from My Mind's Eye.

Thanks for looking again today! Don't forget to leave a comment to be entered into the drawing for some bloggy candy!

Oooooooooooh, gorgeous! Love the creative bling stems! Misting on canvas is one of my new fave things, and the mist looks beautiful on the flowers! This project makes my head swirl with ideas... so thanks for the inspiration!

I love home decor projects....bringing pieces of you into your home (instead of the premade art/creations you can buy in the stores). Plus they mean so much more to you and your family in the long haul. :-)

I've never thought of using fabric flowers in a card like that (in a vase). Thanks for the idea. I love to see other people's creations because they help to springboard my ideas. Thanks

This is such a great idea! I never thought about doing a canvas and I have a few.
I also have the Walk in my Garden cartridge.

Thanks for sharing.
