The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store - Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments Canvas

Hello blogging friends and Happy Monday to everyone!  Today, is my day to post for The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store and I have a beautiful altered canvas using some of the papers from the Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments Collection to share with you.

Here is the canvas--it's an 8 x 8--perfect size for the 8 x 8 paper pads.  I just absolutely love this paper and the gorgeous images!  As soon as I saw this paper I knew I wanted to make some type of wall hanging with it.  Now I know at first glance this might look like a project that took all day but it actually came together pretty quick.  Nothing hard or complicated--just some fussy cutting, layering and gluing. Plus I have a step-by-step tutorial for you too.  ;-)

Here is a close up look at the canvas.  You can click on all of the photos to enlarge them and see all the details.

To start I used Folk Art Acrylic Paint-Linen to paint the sides and outer edges of the canvas.

I used two sheets of this pattern paper and while the canvas was drying I fussy cut these images.  

Next I adhered the 8 x 8 sheet of paper to the canvas and then I added all of the pieces I had fussy cut.  I used 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L™ to adhere all of the pieces and add some dimension.  

I wanted to add a little sparkle so I used Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue and Tim Holtz Distress Glitter Clear Rock Candy.

To finish off the canvas I added some beautiful laces and trims from 
The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  I added one of the trims all around the edge of the canvas and then I added some along the bottom and sides.  

Here is a close up of some of the laces from the  May Arts Ribbon Sampler Delicate Vintage Lace.  I also used some 1/4'' White Silk Ribbon and May Arts Ribbon Sampler Vintage Pink.

Here is a close up of the gorgeous venise lace!  I used Venise Lace 1.25" - Maria WhiteVenise Lace 2.5" - Isabella Ivory and then I added some Melissa Frances Cream Pearls.

I hope you enjoyed the canvas and the tutorial!  

As always you can click on all the photos to enlarge them and all of the supplies are listed below with links.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
