Mojo Monday 206 Canvas

Wow, it's Friday! I hope this finds you getting ready to rest and relax for the three day weekend.  We don't have any big plans. We will just hang out around the house.  That means stamping time for me!  Yippee!


(Click for a bigger picture)
I have been on a canvas creating kick lately and when I saw Monday's Mojo Monday 206 round or square sketch challenge, I knew I would be using it for another canvas.  I have a stamping pal who is going through a tough time and I am going to send this to her.  I hope it will give her some comfort during this difficult time.
I chose to go with the square layout, although I changed it up just a little bit.  Shhhh, don't tell. :)
I started with a plain 6 x 6 stretched canvas that I had previously coated with a layer of gesso.  I then slathered up the outer edges and a little bit of the front edge with Picket Fence Distress Crackle paint. I let it dry for a few minutes and then hit it with the ol' heat gun to finish it off.  Can  you say impatient?  I then rubbed the sides and edges down real good with some Tea Dye Distress ink.  Love, love that stuff!  I pulled papers from the Vanity Fair My Mind's Eye 6x 6 pads.  Have you seen these yet?  MME came out with 12 different 6 x 6 pads that are not the same prints as any of their collections.  They are double sided too!  Sweeeet!!!! You can see them here. You can get them here. I then pulled out my Verve Sunny Days and Where Flowers Bloom stamps and the Leafy Sprigs die and went to work.  The hearts are from Sizzix. I love the way this turned out, I think I will have to make another. :)

Recipe:
Stamps: Sunny Days, Where Flowers Bloom-Verve
Paper: MME Vanity Fair 6 x 6 pad
Inks: Tea Dye Distress, Raisin Adirondack
Extras:  Kaisercraft pearls, Picket Fence Distress Crackle paint, misc ribbon and trim, Sizzix Primitive Heart die, MS Butterfly punch

This is gorgeous! I bought some canvases to create with but haven't done anything. Now I am inspired, but don't have the gesso and stuff you made yours so cool with. Ü
