For a great cause…

Aug 30, 2010

I was asked by Cheryl Darrow to alter a canvas however I wished for a very good cause… this canvas will be up for auction at her Breast Cancer Crop. I created this canvas using a TENseconds Studio 12″ x 12″ canvas with a nitch as well as ledger paper from 1933, vintage buttons, old book pages, scrabble tiles, rhinestones, Maya Road trim and chipboard, a vintage flower frog, Stickles and Distress Stickles. The photo inside can be removed and replaced with your own family photo.

The handmade flowers are created from old book pages. The instructions on how to create these flowers can be found in my book “Delight In The Details“. I love how they look. The trim has been aged with creamy brown ink. The scallops are accented with Diamond Stickles and rhinestones and each button has been threaded using embroidery floss.

The sides of the canvas have been painted with a black and cream checkered pattern and vintage ledger paper accents. The center of each black check is accented with a vintage button and the ledger paper is accented with rhinestones. As you can see no detail has been forgotten.

I hope this sells for a pretty penny.

  • Lisa, that is awesome. I can’t wait to see it in person. We will be announcing this drawing for Breast Cancer Awareness next month as soon as all the canvases are back with us. We’re planning on doing a video showcasing all the pieces so everyone can see them. Thanks for being part of this and I too hope it goes for a good amount.

  • Inspiring as always! I wanted to drop in to tell you I got your book yesterday for my birthday. :) I am in love!!! I looked for it at all the local stores when you had that post a pic of the book in the store contest and could not find it. I was so thrilled to see it in Hobby Lobby, I scooped up the last copy. :) Yay me!

    I am so happy to have it now. Such a treasure!
