Waxy canvas!

For my Creative Expressions DT project this week, I've made a canvas. Lots of flowers...
I've called it my 'waxy canvas' because there's a lot of beeswax on it! Not something that is obvious in pictures, but its there!
The flowers are from the gorgeous Heartfelt Creations plate " Mini Vintage Floret". I stamped each of the three designs onto cardstock that I had painted first. I used three colours of paint, Eco Green colours Ocean, Lime and Waterfall. Once stamped and cut out, I dipped each flower into melted beeswax. This gives a nice thick flower, with a matt finish. Very tactile!
The canvas itself was painted with the same three colours, along with a touch of white! Once dry, I added some white stamped tissue, using the fab chicken wire background. I also added the quote from the Special Sentiments Umount plate...
I stamped the flourish from the Funky Floral plate onto acetate, then added them to the corners of the canvas....
I added feet to my canvas too...rolled up spirals of paper covered with text paper....
A little door knob to the top, and it was done!
See you again next week with another flowery project!
Love Trish xxx
