Hello friends, I'm back with another Magnolia creation. This time I've made a Summer Canvas Book using these beautiful stamps from Magnolia's latest collection, Summer Memories. This project was so much fun to create but also very time consuming. I took lots of pictures to capture all the details, hope you enjoy them!
To make my Summer Canvas Book, I used two 8" x 8" stretched canvases that I first painted with blue acrylic paint. When it was dry, I applied a thick coat of Distress crackle paint, picket fence. I then decorated the backside of the canvases with My Mind's Eye and Teresa Collins pattern papers. I love using the backside of the canvases because the wooden frames create niches that give dimension to my scene. Before I stared adding all my dimensional objects, I hinged the canvases together.
I water colored my images with Distress Inks. For the first scene, I used Tilda Offshore, Edwin Waiting for Fish, Memory Shells and a hand-drawn beach background.
I love decorating with 3-dimesnional objects like this Tim Holtz corked vial that I filled in with golden microbeads and a cute little cut-out fish.
I used Magnolia Cloud Doohickey die and Tim Holtz Scrollwork die cut to simulate some waves.
The sentiment is from Magnolia stamps and the metal charm from my local craft store.
For the second scene, I used my beautiful Pearl Tilda and Oyster with Pearl. I machine stitched around both scenes, using a scallop stitch pattern.
Although it's hard to tell from these pictures, I applied Stickles to Miss Tilda and her cute sea house. And I also added some liquid pearls around the oyster.
The gorgeous flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts and the acetate and cardstock cut outs are K&Company.
These little sea shells prefect for my project are from my local craft store.
