Today, I’m Guest Designing at Craft Hoarder’s Anonymous again! The Challenge is to “Layer It!” (See Details Below). I consider myself a Card Maker more than anything else but lately I’ve been creating Canvases and I’m really starting to like them! They’re like really big cards. I think fall is fabulous and so are these Tim Holtz leaves so I knew I wanted to use them to create a Fall Themed Grateful Canvas!
I started with a plain white Canvas and rubbed Distress Stains directly onto it – Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge. The canvas didn’t absorb the colors so they were fairly light.
I used Crackle Embossing Paste through TH’s Harlequin Stencil and allowed it to dry.
I used Gold Embossing Paste through the TH Speckled Stencil and White Embossing Paste through the CW Sketch Grid Stencil.
I created the leaves using TH’s Layered Leaf Bigz Die with Texture Treads – See THE TUTORIAL HERE.
I spritzed the leaves with Cappuccino Perfect Pearls Mist. I cut the Honeycomb Framewords from Cork and adhered it to the side of the canvas. I put a little Crystal Effects into the corner of a couple of the honeycombs and sprinkled Gold Beads on top. I did the same with Chunky Glitter. I sponged Tarnished Brass Distress Stain through the Bubbles Stencil onto the Canvas before attaching the leaves.
I cut Elegant Flourishes from SU! Early Espresso Cardstock and adhered some Chunky Glitter and then attached them to the Canvas. I cut the greenery using Garden Green Cardstock and the TH Pinecone Die and attached it behind the leaves. Crinkle Ribbon was dyed using Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge and Barn Door Distress Stains. It was tied into a Double Bow using the “How to Tie a Double Bow using your Fingers” Technique (You can see a VIDEO HERE.) and attached it to the top of the Canvas.
Using TH’s Alphaneumeric Letter Framelits, the word “Grateful” was cut from the scraps of card stock that was used to cut the leaves.
They were covered with Crystal Effects and attached to the Canvas using Liquid Glue.
TH’s Pinecone Die was used to cut Brown Kraft Core Cardstock. They were sanded, assembled, and attached to TH Linen Ribbon and then adhered to the leaves at the bottom of the Canvas.
Join the Craft Hoarder’s Challenge #18 – Layer It! – One good way to use your hoard is to use lots of it all at once! So, let’s see those layers! We need to see at least THREE layers on your project! (Ink, paint, embossing, and mixed media products do count as layers!) Drag out all of that hoarded paper or those embossing folders that are in the back of the drawer. Use those stamps, dies, and punches! Show us the layers!
