Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share a home decor/canvas project that I made with you all. I used the fun Time For Spring collection for my project. And really this collection is great for anytime ... not just spring, so don't let the name fool you. :)
Fancy Pants Designs Supplies:
Time For Spring: Flower Patch patterned paper
Time For Spring: Tip Me Over patterned paper
Time For Spring: Gingham Dress patterned paper
Time For Spring: Short & Stout patterned paper
Time For Spring: Ruffles patterned paper
Time For Spring: Pour Me Out patterned paper
Time For Spring: Sweet'ner patterned paper
Time For Spring: Die Cuts
Time For Spring: Alpha Stickers
Beach Babe: Chipboard Alphas
I started with 6 pieces of paper, cut into almost squares (one side is slightly longer than the other simply because of the size of my canvas). The pieces do not fit perfectly but that is ok because I know I am going to cover the edges with paint. I adhered the papers to my canvas.
I took white paint and covered the edges and brushed over the papers, over the middle of the canvas. Ideally, I wanted some of the patterns to show through a little.
I hand-cut three large leaf shapes from 3 different patterned papers. I arranged those and a strip of green paper to make a flower. I also added the words "practice gentleness" to my canvas, overlapping the stem on my flower.
For a final me step, I added a bit of stitching around the papers in my flower.
Well there you have it, a simple but fun canvas to hang on your walls. Thanks for stopping by the blog today! Have you created a home decor project using Fancy Pants Designs papers? We'd love to see it! Leave a link here or upload your project to our Facebook page!
