Tile Canvases

'Vintage Memories'
These are the tile canvases that I have been working on over the past week or so. I have taken inspiration from Natalie Wolfe (go to the Scraptivate website to access her blog) who has a wonderful collection of tile canvases on her blog.
For 'Vintage Memories' I have used Collections papers with a Scrapware frame and corner scrolls, as well as Martha Stewart microbeads and several cuttlebug cut-outs.

This uses my favourite picture once again, but this time in a tile arrangement. I have used Jo Sonja's Opal Dust on the frame, which I am really pleased can be seen on the photo. This has also been used on the back of the canvas under the 'tiled' area. The same stamp has been used on the backing as on the frame. The stamped image on the texture paste spread over the frame, has been highlighted using a white marker which I have then softened by wiping back the colour.

This canvas is in black, white, silver and a neutral brown and is very simliar to Natalie's canvas. The torso in the middle has been made using a 'Krafty Ladies' mould and white resin, both available at Scraptivate.

Tomorrow I am off to Kelsey's class on Marbling ..... can't wait for her to show me more amazing techniques.
Happy Crafting
