A way to use up scraps and rub-ons!


12 x 12 canvas

One reason why I enjoy working on canvas is because I get to use up a lot of scraps and rub-ons! Check out the left over diecut alphas that I used on the background....just add a little paint and gesso and you get awesome texture!

[This canvas which features the use of  hexagons was first shared in the Three Cool Chicks' Let's Get Trendy Now! 2 workshop held in October.]
Rub-ons are a great way to "finish" a canvas.....like these lovely flourishes...

Supplies: 12 x12 canvas, Crafter's workshop templates, Daler-Rowney acrylics and gesso, Prima bloom, Fontwerks stamp, rub-ons, bling, ice-cream stick.

P/s: Hope you are enjoying the last few days of 2012 my friends! I'll be taking a little bloggy break. See you in 2013! :)
