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.
