I made the background of the canvas (about 12" x 16") with a mix of white gesso and various acrylic paints. The two corner pieces were left over form a card from a set bought long ago.
I used two That's Crafty stencils, randomly dabbing the top one with sparkle medium champagne and the bottom one with sparkle medium cinnamon. I inked the Just Rite cling Fleuriste Newsprint background stamp with versafine onyx black and stamped on to a piece of white tissue paper. I then wetted around it with a paintbrush to tear and adhered to the canvas with mod podge.
Flowers from Hobbycraft, the white ones touched with some of the cinnamon and champagne sparkle medium.


Canvas Board using distress inks, textured paste, stencils, die cuts, stamps, flowers and mesh


Mixed M├ędia card : Distress Inks & Glimmer mists 
for the background .
Bo Bunny Glitter paste ( Pink - Green - Blue ) &
 Modeling paste with  Crafter Companion Stencil .
Distress Inks , Mica Powders & Liquid Pearls for the Flowers .




Here I have created a wooden cog and used papers, paints and stamps to decorate.
