Hello and Happy Tuesday!
Yesterday, I was up on the Hazel & Ruby Blog with a new project - a Heart inspired Burlap Canvas.
In celebration of the month of LOVE, I wanted to create a simple canvas, but with a vintage flair.
To build my canvas, I started by applying a heart stencil-mask from the Everyday Words set to a piece of raw bark. Using Krylon Cedar Wood Stain, I sprayed the mask and removed it to let the spray stain dry. (it took a couple of days for the stain to completely dry).
To finish the raw edge of my bark, I used a blanket stitch around the entire edge in a contrasting wax thread. I really love how it turned out.
To finish my vintage look, I added a resin Broken Charlotte doll to a set of wings and a twine bow.
For a bit of whimsy, I glued 2 vintage keys to the bottom of my canvas to be used as a 'stand'. Just a little detail, but adds the perfect little touch.
The perfect thing about my Love inspired canvas is that it can be displayed year round. Since I didn't go with the typical red/pink color scheme, it will fit into my home decor style perfectly.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
