Marci with Rose Canvas Art

So... did you have fun "hopping" along La-La Land Crafts Design Team blogs yesterday for our Blog Hop?? I sure did LOVED seeing everyone's wonderful creations with our new Marci and Luka stamps!!

I loved making my Halloween Canvas SO MUCH, that I just HAD TO make another one!!!! This one has been on my mind for a very long time!!! I knew that I wanted to make one with Marci with Rose and knew exactly what I wanted to do, but I just had hard time executing my idea.. until today!!!! It all just came together!!!! I enjoyed making this little piece of art SO MUCH and I am VERY HAPPY with the way it has turned out!!!! You should see my hands though, they look like a real artist would have after painting ;-)

This will be a project for my "Canvas Art - Summer in Paris" class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile in Sunnyvale, CA. This class is scheduled for:

This canvas measures 6" x 6" .. just like my cards ;-)

You will not believe how involved this project is until you look REAL CLOSE :-) There are so many products used there and so many steps to achieve the result, but it definitely worth it!!! The result is beautiful!! ..if I can say that myself ;-)

Let me see.. I used two different colors of acrylic paint to cover the canvas. Then stamped canvas using Distressed Inks.. first with Diamonds background by Impression Obsession, then with Music background by Hero Arts.. Added little border around the whole canvas on the front and also on all of the sides with one of the stamps from Tattered Angles Time Traveler stamp set.. The circle was stamped with the round stamp from the same set..

Border on the bottom punched with EK Success punch.. Pretty ribbon over it is from May Arts.. Eiffel Tower cut with Cricut, Summer in Paris cartridge.. Flower was made with Tim Holtz die cuts and I used Glimmer Mist on it!! Looks oh so pretty in real life!!!

Banner on the top was made with the stamp from Artsy Banner Large set by Crafty Secrets. The very pretty pearls with roses are from Prima, item #535957..

Marci with Rose was colored with Copics, cut out and popped on the canvas for dimension.. You can buy this Marci stamp along with all other stamps in Marci and Luka Collection HERE..

See.. I told you.. there is A LOT going on with this Canvas ;-)
