Altered Canvas Project - Love Family Life

Good morning :) This month's theme over on the WOW! Embossing blog is Gardens

I created an altered  4" x 6" Box Canvas wall hanging taking inspiration from the colourful gardens around my street right now.

I prepared the canvas with a layer of gesso and quickly dried it with my heat gun. Then I layered on some tissue paper and applied another coat of gesso over it, before spraying the canvas in blues and greens - to represent grass and sky. 

Taking the Cracked Leather stamp and Versamark ink I first heat embossed some Olive powder and then I used the stamp again with black Archival ink. I applied some gold embossing paste and set it aside to dry. 

While my embossing paste was drying I made some Flowers and a red Heart. I don't have a melt-pot so I used some Foil Melt-It cases and my heat gun to melt the powders and Melt-It. For the flowers I used Bright White and for the heart I used Apple Red

I took some white chipboard letters and heat embossed them with Metallic Copper. I used the heart in place of the dot over the I and then layerd on all my flowers -  also adding some buttons, twine and a metal hinge.
