A floral canvas by Nadia

 Hello everyone. I hope this post find you well.
Every once in a while I get the urge to create something REALLY feminine. Something packed with flowers. And I must tell you Manor House Creations always fulfills that urge ! Their flowers come in ALL sizes and colours. I know when I look into my collection of their flowers I will always find something to match whatever project I am working on.
I combined my flowers with a GORGEOUS birdcage chipboard piece from Donna Salazar Designs and some other mists and colour from Donna’s collections too.
To start with, I applied thick Gesso with a palette knife too my background and allowed it to dry.
I then sprayed some Donna Salazar Designs Smooch Spritz Sprays.
While that was drying, I heat embossed the birdcage with Chiffon Embossing Powder and once everything was dry I adhered it to the middle of the canvas.
 Then I chose 3 vines from Manor House Creations, in Pink, Teal and White and overlapped them to create body and depth.
 I also used 2 crochet butterflies from Manor House Creations and coloured them slightly with some ink.

My Mind’s Eye Pretty Things

I couldn’t contain my excitement when it was announced that Manorhouse Creations would be distributing the gorgeous My Mind’s Eye! They have always created amazing collections but I must admit to falling in love with the new Record It! Pretty Things Collection. In particular the 8 x 10 Word Art sheets just jumped out at me. Once I had them there was one major stumbling block – they were just too pretty to use! Every so often something comes along where I want to buy two of it – one to use and one to keep in my stash and admire (now I know I’m not totally alone in feeling like this LOL!) How pretty is this pack?

I had previously bought some clipboards from Typo and knew that these gorgeous papers would be perfect for ‘dressing’ them up. This is the original clipboard next to one I had a play with:

Now I had so much fun with this one that I couldn’t stop at one and kept going!

These are so simple to make and so much fun to have in your work area! Simply take your clipboard and use a Rusting powder to age your clip:

Once dry, I added a little bit of brown and black inks over the top of the rusting to add depth to the rusted finish. Next cover your clipboard with one of the Word Art Sheets:

I then stamped some ‘coffee rings’ onto the paper with brown ink followed by some misting:

Now your paper is nicely aged and distressed, it’s time to add in the fun embellishments! I wanted to pick up the gorgeous vintage tones of the paper along with the lovely pink in the flower image. Here are my two finished clipboards side by side (good job I made two because I think they are about to disappear into each of the girl’s rooms – they have been eyeing the clipboards up ever since I finished them!)

Happy creating!
