Canvas banner...

Posted by Picasa
While my son was away on his trip I found this canvas
banner from Maya Rd and decided to use it instead of
it just being hidden away. I used some Tim Holtz
Distress Inks to ink the background of each little triangle,
using one of his masks on each one to give the flourish.
I then stamped the word "artist" across the banner and
added various different text stamps on top of the letters.

I liked how it looked at that point but knew it needed a
little something else, I die cut some flowers out of an
old pair of jeans, lol! I used a little Smooch Spritz on
top of the flowers, it really adds a lot of sparkle but you
cannot see it that well in the photos. Finished it off with
a few small metal embellishments then tied it all together
with ribbon.
Now my dilemma is I have nowhere to hang it :(

If anyone has questions on the colours/products I used
please just ask, the picture really does not show the
colours that well.
I have to say that the distress inks went on the canvas
so easily, they really work well together.
