Glittered Canvas & Sweet Life Layout!

Hello there, Lisa here, sharing a Canvas Wall Hanging featuring the Sweet Life Collection and Glitter Paste. I had so much fun with all of the new BoBunny products from the latest collections. I chose to do a wall hanging for a dear friend who owns a photography business. (check out my blog for link)  The photo is of her gorgeous little one Delilah. This is kind of like a canvas wrapped photo, except it is a 3 dimensional scrapbook layout mounted on 12 x 12 canvas with the edges being adorned to match the layout. I did a lot of stamping using various BoBunny stamps. I mixed older and newest collection. There are so many gorgeous ones to choose from now. The new Flutter stamps are darling. I LOVE butterflies!!

I used the Glitter paste in various parts of the canvas and the flowers and also rubbed it around the decorative punched paper on the background.

I also spread some glitter paste on the leaves of the flowers. I layered parts of the die cut Ornate Frames behind the Noteworthy tag. I even placed one over the word dream.

The Tutorial to create the Canvas Wall Hanging:

Step 1.
Prepare the sides of the canvas by rubbing on some Pearlescents in Blush. This will create a base that the glitter paste will adhere to.

Step 2.  Apply your stencil to the edge of the canvas and stick down firmly. Apply a thick layer of glitter paste using a palette knife.

 Step 3. Pull off the stencil carefully, and repeat this step until the whole perimeter of the canvas is done.

Step 4. Adhere your layout to the canvas once the glitter paste has dried.

 I hope you were inspired to create a canvas of your own. I surely enjoyed creating this project using Sweet Life and Glitter Paste. I hope you give it a try.

Till next time...Lisa xo
