DIY flower-canvas

Hi!

I’m back with another DIY. It’s been a crafty few days for me lately and I’ll tell you why. It al started Saturday, when two of my best friends came over to celebrate our birthdays. Since one of my friends was in Nicaragua for about four months, we couldn’t celebrate our birthdays on that day. So we decided to celebrate them together when she came back. And last Saturday was thé day!
Birthdays go with presents like bees go with flowers, so we exchanged some awesome presents. The present I got was the perfect proof of the fact that my friends really know me: I got many crafting stuff! *happy dance* So the next day, I immediatly started crafting: I made some cute little boxes which I’ll put on this blog later.
They also got me a canvas which was my crafting project of today. In this blog, I’ll tell you more on how I did it. It was really easy!

First, I painted the canvas since I thought it was a bit too white. I used the color ‘clay’ from ‘Home deco, decorative hobby paint’.

Next, when the paint was dry, I added some ‘mauve’ (also from Home deco) with a sponge. I then painted it again with ‘clay’, when the mauve was still wet. By doing this, I created some darker, purple-ish shades which I think give the canvas more character.

Next, I drew some flower-leaves on scrapbook-paper (I chose to use two colors, but you can use as many as you like).

I cut them out en glued them on the canvas. You can use any glue you like, just use the one you are most comfortable with.

And this was the result!

As you can see, it wasn’t hard at all. It was easy, fun and with a nice result!
P.S.: the white you can see on the flowers is some glue that wasn’t yet dry. I just wasn’t patient enough to wait until it was before taking a picture.

Later I will blog about my little boxes, but this was it for today. Make sure to let me know what you think in the comments and ’till next time!
