Club Scrap November Artist Team Challenge

Welcome to the Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge!

If you arrived here from Tina's Blog, you are in the right place. If you have lost your way or would like to return to the beginning, you can return to Club Scrap.

I just LOVE the Girlfriend Unmounted stamps and I knew they would work perfectly for a project I had been planning in my head.  I started with an 8 x 8 canvas that I purchased at Michael's.

I started by applying a layer of Club Scrap Book Binding Glue to the canvas.

I then took pages from an old phone book and covered the canvas. I did this to create some texture on my canvas.

After my canvas dried I added a layer of gesso.

Once that layer dried I added a layer of acrylic paint in off-white and lavender. Using my Club Scrap Girlfriends Unmounted Stamps, I stamped along the edge of my canvas. I then colored in the floral images with some markers.

I originally wanted to cut a stencil of my quote on my Cricut but I stumbled with making it work. In the end I decided to just cut out the quote and adhere it to the canvas. I added glitter to the Believe to make it stand out (it did not photograph well).

I am pleased with my first attempt at a canvas but definitely need to work on the stencil piece!

Thanks for hopping along with us today! Your next stop on the hop is Roni's Blog and don't forget to return to Club Scrap HERE and play along!

Nice! I like how you emphasized "believed" and "did" with glitter. The flower border looks great! What markers did you use?
