Today Im sharing a canvas that goes up as an wall art in my studio . 

The canvas is 8x10" and is primed with gesso . 
Before I start with the creation most of the times I choose main elements that I need to go with the creation.  
I decided to work with Geo angeles Stencil,  Magnolia stamp set , chipzebs and paints . 
I have used Geo angeles Stencil with texture paste to create these lovely textures around the base . 
I have added Teal and Aqua chalk paints around the canvas to start with .

The base was left to dry overnight , Once I was satisfied with the colours on the base , I used ocean blue to create a center darker than the rest of the area. I have even distressed the canvas corners with blue distress paint to create a lovely mood .

The next step was to start with stamping on the canvas with black ink . I have used Geometric stories stamp set here to stamp unevenly. I have used fern and leaves stamps to cover the area where I decided the frame to go on the canvas .

While waiting for the base to dry , I stamped Magnolia stamp in two sets on my white cardstock and coloured them with zig watercolour . After fussy cutting out the colored images , I planned to use the stamp as a whole but something didn't feel right so I decided to used the creation by splitting it into two pieces as you can see in this creation.

I have been wanting to use this particular sentiment as the focal point of this creation  as it does talk a lot to me . I stamped the sentiment from Together Forever and added it to the Victorian Frame Chipzeb 

The butterflies from the Butterfly flutters was stamped coloured and fussy cut to go on the canvas.

Once I placed the frame in the center of the canvas I started working around it. I have added 
Fancy Flourish Chipzeb and stamped images to coordinate.The stamped images are stuck down with double sided foam tapes to create dimensions as I don't like them to lay flat on the canvas.  
I have further added Harvest Mix – Couture Sequins , Tinytag #1 and heart chipzebs along with the Nested Square Chipzebs to cover the theme .

Here are the close ups of the canvas showing you the textures , splashes and dimensions created  -

I truly love the way it fell in place for me and I can proudly say these are the few elements I always go for with when it comes for creating wall art !! This is all in all a new type of creation for me from the blend of chalk paint and distress paints to cover up the canvas, following a colour palette  and the technique of using of stamps to completely embellish the creation is something I have done for the first time . The Magnolia stamp set and Victorian Frame chipzebs is also from the latest release . With so much new in this creation, hope it brings out a lot of freshness in you too as it has for me !!

Hope you like this Project of mine. Do participate and stay for a chance to win some Mudra products of your choice!
