I fancied trying something a little different and originally my intention was to print onto vellum then emboss and create a parchment type effect however upon rummaging through the printable paper box I came across a sheet of printable canvas in a lovely natural colour. My creative mind went into overdrive and I went in search of Hubby's painting stash where I happened upon a lovely 8" x 10" canvas in a soft natural tone.
I started off by inking the edges of the canvas using Rhubarb Stalk ink, I printed a sheet of toppers from the Rainbow Rose Collection CD I used silicone glue to adhere the largest topper to the top right corner, added a tassle, printed bow and embellishment. I then stamped an image in the bottom left corner, this was not as easy as I had hoped and had to layer the canvas over books to give me a solid base, the back of the ladies head didn't come out too well so I used one of the printed ribbons from the topper sheet to hide it, adding real lace and some fabric flowers. I used a punch for the butterflies and some stickles glue to add some butterfly trails.
This is the first time I've created anything like this but its definately created a whole new avenue using CDs and other embellishments. Who says you can't be creative with CDs???
