Love Canvas ~ Donna Salazar

Hi! I have another canvas to share today, and I decided to make it pretty simple. I have played with the Mix'd Media Stax 2 on this one, a stencil and different embossing powders from Mix'd Media Inx on this piece.
I have ripped pieces of different papers in the Mix'd Media Stax 2 and glued them onto the canvas. I have also put a piece of cheesecloth on there, and then painted with white gesso. On several spots I have used Mix'd Media Inx Embossing Powder, in the colors Jasmine and Chiffon. For a title I have used Want2Scraps and Donna's Love stencil with texture paste.
Since I wanted to keep this canvas simple, and to show off the textured background, I have only decorated with a resin piece and some flowers.

Here are some more pics for you:

Petaloo projects

Today I am sharing a couple of projects that I recently made for Petaloo - one card and one canvas.
First, the canvas. I have used papers and chipboard from Quick Quotes, the Serendipity collection,  together with Petaloo Burlap flowers and Botanica Berry clusters.

Then, a card using the same papers and flowers as above, but with chipboard from Dusty Attic.
The corrugated board is from Donna Salazar Designs. Perfect as a base!

I just love seashells and Petaloo carries bags of seashells - perfect! I have painted them, and the flowers, with some white gesso and then added different mists in blue shades.

Vintage Memories ~ Dusty Attic

Today I have a canvas to share, featuring some of my fave Dusty Attic pieces - the large Window with Shutters (DA0946) and the Vine Border (0459). I have used the June sketch, made by Nadia Cannizzo:

For the background I have glued ripped pieces of patterned paper, used a stencil (Donna Salazar's and Want2Scraps brick stencil), and misted with gold and green mists.

The Window (without the shutters) I painted white, inked a bit with gray ink and then embossed with white Mix'd Media Embossing powder.

I divided the Vine Border into three pieces, painted them white and then embossed the leaves with Mix'd Media embossing powder, color Leather.

Lots and lots of beautiful Petaloo flowers!

The title Vintage Memories (DA0871) I kept raw :)

Memories ~ Donna Salazar

Hi! A few weeks ago, I was in a store that carried canvases in all possible sizes, and of course I had to buy some! This one is 10x15 cm.
I started with painting the canvas with white gesso, and then I used a brick stencil (Want2Scrap & Donna's) with texture paste. After the paste had dried, I added some Mix'd Media Inx, color Peridot. I then misted with Smooch Spritz, River Moss, and also made some splatter here and there.
After adding pieces of a doily and cheese cloth, and some embellishment, I added more Smooch Spritz, spray and splatter. I just love Smooch Spritz, it gives amazing color!
Speaking of color, I just had to add some Mix'd Media Embossing Powder, color Peridot, on the edges of the flowers!

And some close-ups:

Winter fun ~ Dusty Attic

Hi there! It's summer here in Sweden, but yet I have a winter layout to share :).

I have used the smaller of the Flourish Frame Set (DA1035) and divided it into four pieces. I painted them white and distressed them a bit. I then used two pieces under the photo, and two in opposite corners.

I have also used the Birds on a Branch #3 (DA1003). I have painted it white and then I painted the leaves with Dusty in Color Denim (DA0914) and with Clear Gloss Varnish (DA0901). I then misted the chippie with blue mist.
A close-up of the Birds on a Branch #3:
The butterflies are from Reneabouquets.
Papers are from Maja Design, Vintage Autumn Basics.
I also painted a couple of leaves from Spider Chrysanthemum (DA1043) white and tucked them under a Petaloo flower:

The alpha is a mix of Mini ABC Set Lower (DA0862) and Upper (DA0861):
