ANOTHER CANVAS BOARD PROJECT.

I just can't seem to get enough of these little 5x7 canvas board wall hangings using my yummy pink acrylic paint and black and white For Always fabrics and papers!


I painted the board with my pink acrylic paint, then used Mod Podge to glue on the papers from Chantilly (the pink in the background and the little zip strip at the bottom) and For Always (the black flowered paper).  Then I mod podged all over it again to seal everything.

The black and white rosette I made with the For Always paper, and the pink ones are with the Chantilly papers. I just love rosettes! See my rosette tutorial here.

Once everything was dry, I stamped using black Staz On ink, using the Tailor-Made stamp set which I absolutely love (retired stamp set but I could probably find one for you if you just HAD to have it!). Since I'm a sewer and quilter, I also added stitching lines using a black Sharpie pen. I can't seem to resist adding some sort of lines or stitching when I do these little canvas boards.

I made this for my sister's birthday, who is an avid quilter. Over 30 years ago, she and I were both sewing for a shop in the Old Town District of Portland, Oregon! She made leather coats and jackets, and I made mens' western shirts.  Sewing, and then quilting, is in our blood! 

I am a HUGE fan of Liquid Glass. Besides being an awesome super sticking adhesive for just about anything, it makes a neat shiny look to stamped images and embellishments, and you can make water droplets if you want a wet effect.
HAPPY CRAFTING!

    1. Thank you Jann for the comment! I love comments! Yes this was a very special project for my sister who is exactly 4 years younger than me! both born on June 29th! We have both loved to sew FOREVER! But now I'm afraid I have strayed to the land of paper (mostly). I still have quilt projects and sewing projects patiently waiting for me to finish them. sigh.......... anyway.. keep collecting those lids for the rosettes! I think my rosettes are taking over my craft room!

  4. This is so cute! I used to stamp a lot and now work with scrap-booking paper. I never would have thought of stamping after paint. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thank you for your comment. Sorry it took so long to reply. Your comment got "lost" in the "awaiting moderation" black hole! Yes, I like to stamp with black staz-on ink OVER the paint and mod podge. It works great and that way doesn't smear at all. I love the papers AND stamps! Marilyn

    1. Thank you for your comment. I can't live without Liquid Glass. I use it for glossing up little things, for droplets on my pages, and just as good old glue (and it works on just about everything). You DO have to hold it for about a minute to get a good stick! Sorry my reply took so long..... comments from this Etsy Success party got "lost" somewhere in cyberspace on my blog and I just found them! Marilyn
