To Plant a Flower Canvas

Happy Tuesday everyone! Its Judy here today with a bright “To plant a flower” decorated canvas. I’m thinking spring with pretty flowers and lush green grass!judy-hayes-plantaflower1

I  started this project with the gauze flowers.  I had no idea what direction I would go until I cut the them!  To make those, I worked Girlie Grunge Art Medium into gauze by squeezing and rolling it in my hands.  Then I spread it to dry on a craft mat. Once it was dry, I die cut the flowers. It cuts beautifully and won’t fray! I decided to layer the gauze flowers over paper ones to add more color. They are fastened together with Dodz Medium. The two larger flower centers were created with buttons covered with Dodz XL and pressed into Prills. So easy! I used two sizes of brads for the smaller flower centers along with Dodz Medium.   The bigger flower centers are fastened to the flowers with Dodz Medium and small ones with Dodz Mini.


The background is a denim pennant. I’ve fastened it to white paper with pinked edge using Home and Hobby Premium Double-Sided ¼ʺTape around the edges. That’s layered onto patterned paper fastened to a 6 x 8ʺ canvas art board.

I used pink and blue Girlie Grunge Twine twisted together with Girlie Grunge Art Medium to form a vine. After I arranged it as I liked, I used Dodz Mini to fasten it under each flower. Each flower is popped up on 3D Foam Squares. Once they were in place, I fastened the twine in a few more places with dots of Art Medium.  The leaves are held in place with Dodz Medium.

The verse, stamped and clear embossed on white card stock, is fastened with Crafty Foam Tape cut narrower to fit the word strips.

A fun and colorful project for spring! Great for a gift, too!

Happy creating!

Judy Hayes
