Canvas project

I made this little canvas for my OH for his study - it's of his recently born Godson. I used the Cherry Arte Cosmic Energy patterned papers. At first glance these papers are very bright and bold, but here I have used the reverse side to create a piece with a more subdued colour scheme (I used Asteriods, No Radar and Milky Way papers). Other supplies included Bazzill (the matching Bazzill pack for these papers is currently on offer), and stamped images from Mindy's Zoo stamps (but you could always substitute these lovely High Hopes animal stamps instead). The letters are cut with my Sizzix.

To make the canvas, I painted the edges of the canvas first of all, then added the papers (wrapping the striped paper around the edges) and photos (main photo is 6x4 and the small one 1.25square). I decopaged the stamped animals to give more depth and finally added a journalling block with some details about Oliver and die cut title. I stamped the images onto patterned paper for more interest before colouring some portions with brush markers. The canvas I used was approx 8x8, so this would also translate easily to a great scrapbook page in that size. Thanks for looking!
