She Loved The Everyday

  This is a 4x5 canvas on an easel I made for Melanie, an awesome and lovely person who I meet through our local paper craft store. It was for her birthday.

  The side. I wrapped TH elastic lace all around the canvas.

  My favourite set of stamps (right now), "How Does Your Garden Grow" by Dyan Reaveley/Dylusions. Great for canvas art. I paper pieced the bird and flowers. The stamps already come with text/numbers on them. Under the flower is drywall tape!

  The top. I used a sewing bobbin and hot glued it on top of the canvas. Then added some Hug Snug Binding Ribbon, inked with matching DI colours I used on the canvas and tied it around the bobbin. On top of the bobbin is a button.

I even inked and stamped the easel!

Entering this birdie canvas in:
1. Fashionable Stamping Challenge #41 Birds
2. Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge: Something Messy
3. Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings CH#66 Spring Colors and Ribbon

Very nice weather we're having today. Almost spring like!

i made it myself!

  Very excited and honoured! This little bird canvas was selected for the Top 3 at the Fashionable Stamping Challenge! Awesome!
