Couture Creations Mini Canvas

Mini Canvas 
By Sue Smyth 

Hi all
With Christmas coming it is always nice to 
think of some small gifts to make for family and 

One of my things I like to do is a mini canvas
search around for a pretty decorative easel
to sit it on and it makes a beautiful gift 

I have started with my canvas, that just 
happens to be the same size as the Fancy Frame die.
Cut this and the other shapes from light 
weight cardboard.
Old cereal boxes are ideal.

Adhere chip frame to canvas, paint with 
gesso and spray with Red spray.
Rub over gold paint. 

Emboss Ornate frame with gold 
embossing powder, add scrap 
paper to the centre and attach
to canvas with 3 D foam tape.

Apply ink to Dress form and add Dimensional magic.
Allow the ink to swirl and marble for a neat pattern.

Add paper flowers, pearls, hat pins, muslin and some
mini wings to decorate the dress form.

Happy Crafting
