Canvas on a budget

Hi my crafty peeps! 

I'm here today with a canvas that I made that was inspired by a sketch over at Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog. Not only did they have a sketch for us we were challenged to use 1 old and 1 new item in our project. I used pearls by the yard for the old and washi tape that I have just received from Pinque Peacock for the new. :-)

The "canvas" is actually a frameless picture that I picked up from the dollar store. I gave it 3 coats of gesso to cover the print and went to town.

I lightly sprayed the background with pink and purple shimmer mist, layered flat laces and added a doily for the background.

I fussy cut the images from the Graphic 45 Botanical Tea collection collection and added a silk flower that I had altered.

I thought the washi tape fit right into the project -- I just LOVE how it looks!!

Thank you for stopping by! Don't forget you can always find me on:


I am entering this project into the  Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog. :-)
