Love Life ~Manor House Creations & Imaginarium Designs~

Hi there!
Today I want to share with you a project, a special project for me. I challenged myself to create a canvas without using any pattern paper.
And this is the result :-)

This is how the  canvas looked like with my first layers of painting, misting and masking.....
I used a mask from Tattered Angels and Gel Medium (heavy) to achieve the dimension I wanted....

All the beautiful flowers you see on this project are from Manor House Creations - an Australian company producing such beautiful flowers. You can check amazing projects from the Design Team -----> HERE
  • There are two turquoise flowers which were initially white - I simply used Glimmer Mist to color them.
  • I used Prima Marketing clear stamp for the letter "G"

  • I framed the photo with Gaffer Tape from "7 Gypses". Before I applied it I tore it in thin strips...

  • The letter "G" you see is my personal seal. I used red wax here. 

  • The word "love", the alphas (L.I.F.E.) and the gorgeous butterfly come also from Imaginarium Designs....
  • I painted the chipboard letters with Gesso, then I added puffy paint and in the end I painted with Glimmer Glam....
  • The bird was also painted with Glimmer Glam...
  • The butterfly - firstly painted with Gesso and then I used at least 5 colors Glimmer Mist :-)

Well, I hope you had fun with my canvas project today.
Have a great day!

  16. Hi Anumpama! Thank you for your question!
    I`m using Tacky Glue ~Quick Dry~ (Aleene`s) - it`s perfect and it dries transparent !!!!
