ButterBeeScraps Enjoy the Journey Vintage/Shabby 8 x 10 Altered Canvas

Hello everyone!  Today, I have an altered 8 x 10 canvas to share with you.  

I used several metal filigree pieces from ButterBeeScraps to embellish the canvas.  I started by painting the edges of the canvas with ivory acrylic paint and then I added some Faded Jeans Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain.  The Faded Jeans color was the perfect match for the flowers in the DCWV The Primrose pattern paper.  Next, I added a piece of the pattern paper to the background on the canvas.  I used a tiny dot stencil and a doily stencil with some homemade texture paste to add some interest and dimension to the background paper.  After the texture paste was dry I added some ivory acrylic paint and Antique Linen Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain on top of the stencils.  Next, I fussy cut the postcards, ticket and banner pieces.  I distressed the edges on the postcards and ticket and added them to the center of the canvas.

I added Bronze Chain (Item #CH779-B) across the top of the canvas and then I added the banner pieces.  To decorate the banner pieces I added lace, Bronze Filigree 409-B, flat back pearls, and Pink Resin Roses.

Here is a close up of the banner.

On each side of the banner I left the chain longer to add some pearl dangles.  I used Bronze Ball End Head PinsBronze Filigree Bead Caps (Item #CAP052-B) and pearls to create the dangles.

In the lower left corner I added a doily and then I used one of the  Large Bronze Cameo Frames (Item #F623-B) with a  Large Oval Glass Cabochons (Item #CAB017) to create the sentiment.  The paper is from the same collection and I dry brushed some of the ivory paint on to the frame.  Then I added some WOC Flowers.

I create a couple more small flowers clusters on the other side of the canvas.  Then I added a Bronze Decorative Key and a Bronze Filigree Flower 124-B with a 6 mm flat back pearl on top.

I love how vintage and shabby this canvas turned out!  Don't forget you can click on all of the picture to enlarge them and see all the details.
