Create canvas

I created “Create” on a 4×4 canvas for Canvas Corp Brands. The request was to create a sort of a business card, to put your mark on a small canvas, to show who you are as a designer to the world. So here is mine:

Actually it was a lot of fun to try to think about all the things that I like. So I was beginning with a simple stamping using Harlequin background stamp, Versamark and embossing powder.

Stamping check. Then came collaging. I used Serengeti paper and a simple paper dolly to add a scrap collage to my page.

Colouring, did you happened to know that Tattered Angels have a great variety of mists, glazes and paints? And of course in all the colours of the rainbow, with glitter and with chalk, you choose! Here I used glimmer mists (electric blue and sapphire).

While my mists dried, I made that tattered flowers that I cut with Sizzix die. The flower is a printed canvas distressed and the leaves are corrugated cartoon painted.

Under the flower I added a simple brown lace and some thread.

I cut the word “create” from Express yourself gypsy moments paper and applied on my upper corner.

I thought I touched most of the areas and materials I love to use. So I would like to introduce myself as a Creative Crew Member at Canvas Corp Brands.
