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.
