Floral Hessian Canvas Inspired by Penny Nuttall for Paper Artsy


Over on Paper Artsy this week, Penny Nuttall was Guest Designer, and on night one she made a wonderful hessian book with fabric liner paper. I thought I would try to recreate the same look as an excuse to use a hessian canvas with a gessoed background, and use the stamps in a similar way to Penny - so I was totally inspired by her in making it even though it is much simpler. I used StazOn in Claret, Orange Zest, and Ganache. The script is from Hot Picks 1304 and the flowers are from 1009.  I added metal flowers from an old necklace which I rusted and enamelled with Fresco paints, and some rusted photo corners. It was very quick but I quite like it as a piece of home decor as I like to be able to 'put things somewhere' or give them to people who won't say 'what is it?'!!

I am entering this into the Paper Artsy challenge and also That's Blogging Crafty which is Something Stamped, and the Artistic Stamper which is Anything Goes.

    Ha ha! I saw your comment on my blog and on Lin's - had you given up all hope that I'd get round to it?! I broke open the Stampbord at last and I did think of you as I did it! It sure is fun! Julie Ann xxx

  11. I'm so far behind with blog visiting that I'm almost tempted to just give up altogether! But then suddenly there's time for a quick hop round and you find delights like this... absolutely love the rugged look of the gesso against the hessian, and the flowers - both stamped and dimensional - are lovely.
