mixed media canvas "summer" {DT work for heartfelt creations}

hello crafty friends!

while ago i begun creating mixed media canvas for HEARTFELT CREATIONS. my idea was to pictrue all four seasons through their stamps, cutting dies and paper collections.

and today i would like to share the last season-canvas with you - 


heartfelt creations products used on this project: 

 i began by covering a 28 x 30 cm canvas with gesso. then i colored it with TIM HOLTZ distress ink pads – mix light green, blue, pink, violet and dark purple to match the colors of the pattern papers. 

to create the stamped frame i used the following HC stamp sets: HC shabby chic lace set, HC vintage floret bouquet set, HC broken cinder blocks set and HC tattered background set with different color ink pads. 

then i stamped the cracked background from HC tattered background set in the middle of the canvas with light blue ink and colored the leaves with green distress markers. 

i used THE CRAFTER'S  WORKSHOP "mini harlequin" mask with modeling paste to create a dimensional pattern in the middle of my canvas.

for the doll i used my sketch {you can download it HERE}, HC vintage floret paper collection and brown cardstock. 

i printed the sketch few times on a normal paper and cut out all the different elements. then i outlined the doll parts on the pattern paper and cut them out, or - the really small elements - i glued them upside down to the pattern paper of my choice and cut them out. i used this method to make sure that i’ll have the right size. 

i distressed the edges of the ready pieces with black ink and begun assembling my paper doll. once it was glued to the canvas, i added glitter and the PRIMA markeing flower center pearl to decorate the dress. 

the little blossoms on the dress are made from bluish pattern paper using the HC open vintage floret set and HC vintage floret die. to finish them off i added rhinestone flower in the middle. 

then i fussy cut the branch with blue blossoms from the pattern paper. i stamped and cut three blossoms from white cardstock, coloured them with pink PANPASTEL, embossed the petals and added them to my canvas.

the sentiment is cut from pattern paper. i glued it on a brown cardstock, cut two decorative corners with HC decorative butterfly/border die, embellished them with rhinestones and added them at the top and at the bottom of the sentiment piece.

i hope you enjoyed today's post!
