I love making canvases! Here is one I made for a very dear friend. I wanted to let her know how important she is to me. I used my favorite quote from the Wizard of Oz, "A heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others." (Wizard to Scarecrow)
I actually got the idea from a submissions call by Scrap N'Art Magazine. They were looking for projects with the theme "Love is in the Air." I had just purchased one of Spellbinders new Die D-Lites, the Fantastic Flourish Three, and I kept seeing the heart embedded in it's design and it reminded me of the rigging you might see on a hot air balloon!
I chose the background paper (Percussion from Moxxie's Musically Inclined Collection) because it reminded me of the swirling winds that carried Dorothy over the rainbow. Across the bottom of the canvas I included a page torn from a Wizard of Oz book. The washi tapes represent the blue birds and the songs. The Maya Road Crystal Star Trinket pin is Glinda's wand. I even created my own version of the yellow brick road using modelling paste and Spellbinders Fancy Lattice die.
We both love the way it turned out and it looks wonderful in her room. Now one of her friends is interested in having me create a canvas for her, "Under the Tuscan Sun."
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you find some time to play! Susie
