As most of you know by now I am on the Canvas Corp design team and as our first challenge we were asked to take a mini canvas from Canvas Corp and alter it to show our style....this was a bit more difficult than it sounds because I have always fancied myself a bit eclectic when it comes to my style. So I was forced to sit down and really take stock in my style and this is what I came up with I am Vintage Shabby Chic and this is the canvas I came up with.

So to create this canvas and to show my style I started by spraying the canvas and my tiny newsprint flowers with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in bronze. Next I took a 4" Letter "L" and covered it with 7 gypsies paper and inked the edges with my Vintage Photo Ink by Ranger. Next I took a fun rustic star wire piece (I got this in the Christmas area of Hobby Lobby) and wrapped it around the L. I cut a burlap doilie using my cuddle bug (or you can purchase them at Hobby Lobby) and cut it in half and adhered to canvas top. Next I layerd on my L using pop dots. On a journal card from a Seven gypsy kit I wrote "ive", "ove", "augh" letting the 3-d L be the L to the words clipped on a gold mini clothes pin by Canvas Corp and pop doted it all onto the canvas beside the L. I finished it off by layering on the mini newsprint flowers by Paper Studio.
These make great little ornaments, or mini works of art to place on an eisle.
