Canvas Fun

I have had so much fun making this canvas.  I was very lucky to receive a melting pot from my amazing boss Elena for Christmas  :-)  I have not stopped playing with it.    So for this project I have made a canvas using the WOW molds and Embossing powder.

This months theme is Fabric,  I added a panel of burlap and  gesso to the canvas.  I used distress paint to give the back ground some colour.  Once it was dried I added embellishments . Which I made with embossing powders :-)

For this flower I made with Black Ultra High Embossing Powder and added some Blue Perfect pearls to it.

I made the branches using the Ultra High Gold Embossing Powder and  a cake mold along with the leaves.  For the leaves I used a mixture of Green Wow Embossing Powders.

To attach them to my canvas I have used really tackie glue,  you could used a heat gun too.

When I had finished with a colour in the melting pot I tipped it out onto a non stick, heat resistant craft mat.  Sometimes it came out in drops (orange) which made the perfect dew drops.  If you shake the pot around a bit when it comes out you can get a string effect (green)

I used these to add texture to my project.

For this last photo you can see some of the detail the embossing powder creates when pouring into a larger mold.  I love this as it gives the branches a real life look.  

I hope you have enjoyed my project, feel free to leave a comment.  I love to read what you think.  Remember each month we have a challenge and you have a great chance to win some embossing powders.  So if you have a project or time to make a project that uses embossing powder and fabric please link it up so we can all admire it.  Thanks for popping by.
