Good Friends Mini Canvas with Lace Ribbons + Adhesive Dots

Hello Good Friends!  It’s Judy here today.  I’m sharing a Good Friends Mini Canvas created just for you with Girlie Grunge Art Medium, Lace Ribbons and Adhesive Dots 3D and Adhesive Dots Medium.  I enjoy making little canvases like this for special friends.  It’s tiny yet says a lot!


I started this Good Friends canvas by attaching the Lace Ribbons around the edge of a 3 x 4ʺ canvas using Girlie Grunge Art Medium.  It works really well as a glue!


Next, I stamped the verse on white tissue paper with black ink and clear heat embossed it.  I painted the canvas including Lace Ribbon with chalk paint.  I brushed on another layer of paint on front and placed the tissue paper with verse over the wet paint.  I smoothed in place and then carefully tore off the excess at the edges.  I lightly brushed paint over the tissue and around the verse, even lightly brushing over it.  A very light rubbing with a damp paper towel removed any paint that covered the verse.


I sponged on a bit of Distress Oxide inks around the verse.  I also sponged on Fired Brick Oxide ink lightly over the Lace Ribbon.   Then I fastened twine around the Lace Ribbon using Girlie Grunge Art Medium to fasten it.

The flowers were cut from Kraft cardstock sponged with Distress Oxide inks: Broken China, Iced Spruce, Fired Brick, Fossilized Amber, and Peeled Paint.  (Fossilized Amber not shown in the photo)


Once the flowers were rolled, I used Adhesive Dots 3D to fasten the bigger flowers together and Adhesive Dots Medium for the smaller ones. The DODZ™ Adhesive Dots make it so easy to put together these little flowers!


I fastened the flowers and leaves to the canvas with Adhesive Dots Medium.  I tucked a twine bow under the flowers, also fastened with Adhesive Dots Medium.


This canvas is for you my Good Friends!  So happy you visited today!
