... tis Blog Hop time! Oh yesh, tis very exciting to be a part of this fabulous blog hop organised by Craft Stamper.

I used lots of different media to make this canvas, including patterned papers, embossing pastes, stencils, ink sprays and of course, what self respecting canvas wouldn't be complete without a big old dollop of embellishments! The background was created with some gorgeous Bazzill papers, I cut blocks of them and layered them onto the canvas - this is a cool way to use up your little snippets (I know you have a big box of them, we all do lol) Once the blocks were stuck in place, I used Cut & Dry foam to smudge watered down cream paint, this ties the whole design toget and then adds to the over all effect.
The big heart is a Studio 490 stencil for art... I used Studio 490 embossing paste through the stencil and once this was set, I added smidges of Treasure Gold to the raised peaks. The floral embellishment was made up with paper roses and Prima Flowers, to tie them into the colour scheme, I simply spritzed them with Dylusions Sprays and Cosmic Shimmer Mists. The embellies all had a smidge of Treasure Gold wax added to them to jazz them up a bit.
Please do call back here on Tuesday 5th Feb as I will be doing a full step by step tutorial with an altered canvas, using lots of stamps, embossing pastes, paint and embellies. I will also be doing a giveaway too! If you are taking part in the hop, you should be arriving here from Carol's blog. The next letter for you to collect is...
