Canvas Class - LO Pics

Hi Ladies,
On Sunday I had the pleasure of teaching a class to a lovely group of ladies in Lowood.  We had a lot of fun with some mixed media techniques that we applied to a canvas.  I loved that they all put their own individual touches on their canvases and changed it up from my original example, so that they all came out differently.

Thank you so much ladies, for such an enjoyable day and for being a fabulous and easy-going group to teach.

Love You Always
This is my example of the canvas.  I have used tissue paper on the background for some texture, which was misted, then masked with gesso and splattered with a contrasting mist.  The canvas was edged with layers of mesh tape, washi tape and some punched borders to create a frame. A few pieces of distressed and grunged patterned papers and lace were used to frame the photo, and some pretty flowers were added in clusters.  The gorgeous diecut frame bordering the title word is from Manor House Creations and ties in beautifully with the shabby chic look of the canvas.

Here are some of the gorgeous canvases created in the class.  Don't they look amazing!!
The class kit had enough leftovers to create a few quick and easy cards.

List of Materials:  MME pp's, Prima stencil, Manor House Creations diecut frame, Green Tara flowers, berry clusters, Prima lace, Craft Queen washi tape and ribbon, Trinket Track wooden frame, bling and pearls, manila tag, Lindy's Stamp Gang mist, homemade aqua mist, EK Success border punch, Martha Stewart butterfly punches, paper doilies, mesh tape, gesso, tissue paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Your lovely comments really make my day.
