Love this! with Made with Love

Hello friends!

Back in after a break with a canvas I created for my LSS Made With Love. I'm using the gorgeous Sanctuary collection from Blue Fern Studios and just enjoy playing with the deep rich colors.

For the canvas background, all I did was some simple stenciling and colored it with Distress Stain in Bundled Sage. I used some water to create a watercolor effect, so that the white of the canvas would not be too outstanding. To give some texture to break the monotony of using only papers, I tore some pieces of corrugated cardboard and layered them around.

Some close-ups:

A piece of Blue Fern Studios chipboard (Shabby Brick Bits) which I altered by (1) a layer of gesso, (2) a coat of Stone Effects Dimensional Medium from Art Anthology, followed by (3) sprinkling of Distress Embossing Powder in Faded Jeans from Rangers. This gave my chipboard a wonderful textured feel. 

Layering my flowers and a shabby trinket from Prima. 

My title piece (also from BFS), which I altered with black embossing powder. Finally when all is adhered, I added just a tiny bit of water to gesso and made splatters all over. Just remember to cover up your photo if you don't want any to get on it!

Supplies used (available from Made With Love):

Patterned paper, chipboard: Blue Fern Studios
Mediums: Rangers, Prima Marketing, Art Anthology, Tattered Angels (Bell Bottom Blue Glimmer Mist)
Flowers and embellishments: Prima Marketing

That's all I have for today, thanks for dropping by!



  1. Adore the way you've done the [almost] black title!!! And the mix of flowers with that spark plug! Makes me realise that you can really mix any embellie you want, actually......must do that. Freeing feeling!!! Gorgeous rips, too. I do like a good rip!!!

  2. Beautiful layout! That photo is so cute!

  3. I absolutely love this. The colours are gorgeous against the dark background. The canvas background with the Bundled Sage is so pretty. I just love this one. Cute pic of your little one too <3
