2/28/10 Scrapbook Canvas Project HOW TO.....

Supply List:

Canvas (16x20)
Paints ( The kind you use for tole painting)
Delta Autumn Brown
Deco Art Cashmere Beige
Foam Brush for painting

My Minds Eye Love story paper collection pack plus memory card (purchased separately)
4 sheets of card stock - 1 dark,1 light, 2 brown
2 additional decorative papers (greens) to bring out the green colors.
Ribbon (about 1 1/2 yards)
Flowers and leaves
Bling - rhinestones and pearls for flower centers
Tim Holtz Key and Lock'
Ink and a paper edger distressing tool
decorative edge punch

Now We Are Ready To Get Started!
Paint your canvas edges with the Cashmere Beige colors about 3" edge all the way around,You don't have to paint the whole thing.
With the Autumn Brown color add a little shading on edges so it looks like you inked it.
Set it aside to dry while you make all your paper cuts.

Paper Cuts:
Layered lg.flower :
Lg Flower 10 3/4 ( Dk.Brown )
Lg. Circle 9"
Flower 8"
Circle 7"
Cut all 4 distress Decorative papers only but ink them all.

1 12x12 whole distress and ink only right edge

8x8 square and a 7x7 square distress and ink edges On the 7x7 tear right corner and
fold over to make a little pocket for the flowers. I actually distressed the backside of the tear to get some distressing on the tear area too!
2 - 3 1//2 x 4 distress and ink
1 - 4 x 5 distress and ink

Now the rest of the cuts are double because they have to be layered to go across the 16 x 20 canvas. You may want to glue them together before you distress and ink.

2- 2 x 12 Distress and ink
2- 6 x 12 Distress and ink
2- 3 1/2 x 12 use decorative punch on top edges and ink
** no cuts but you need but you need to distress and ink your memory card.

There are all the cuts... Refer to photo for placement and then embellish away!
For font I used my CRICUT and HOME ACCENTS CARTRIDGE. Flower and Circles were cut using CRICUT and ACCENT ESSENTIALS CARTRIDGE.

*** Distressing tool and inking, I actually bought a distressing tool a couple years ago and just didn't seem to work for me. OK here is why... you can't be afraid to use it! Run the blade along the edge of the paper repeating until you get the desired look.The more you do it the better it gets. I think this is the reason I didn't like it. I just didn't use it enough. The more you go over the edge the better it looks! Then run your ink pad along the edges. You can practice on some scrap!
