Vintage Garden Canvas
February 20, 2019
Hello! It's Jennifer back on the blog to share another project I created with one of the fabulous new releases! The Farmhouse Wood Stencils go perfect with the Medium Pallet shapes but you can use them on other surfaces as well. I found a burlap canvas at my local big box craft store and thought it would go perfect with the Vintage Garden Farmhouse Wood Stencil!
I applied acrylic white paint with a foam paint brush. The burlap soaks up the paint so I went slow and applied at least three coats. My end result wasn't even but I think it gives my project a distressed/vintage look. Before adding embellishments, I used chalk ink in brown along the edges of my canvas.
Here, I used one of the Monarch Butterfly Chipboard Embellishments that I painted white. I then heat embossed with a glitter teal color to give it extra pop. Then using my Silhouette, I cut layered flowers with different patterns and fastening brads in the center. I also adhered a few paper flowers in with my embellishments for more dimension.
I also utilized my butterfly hand punches to add additional accents. I found using my hot glue gun worked best with affixing my embellishments.
Thank you for stopping by the blog today! You can see all of the new 6x16 Stencils by going HERE! Have a great day!
