Papercrafting on Canvas

Hello friends,
Today I have an 8 x 10 canvas board that I created a place for displaying a picture. I made it for my Grammy for a picture that was taken of her at a flower festival she recently went to. She mentioned to me how she would love a special frame to showcase the pic. I figured she was dropping hints so... I got set to work on it. :)
Here it is:
 To get started, I sprayed the canvas with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist so the edges have a shimmer to them. I added a piece of Mimosa (SEI) cardstock to mat it. I used the Beach House Wallpaper DP to mat the picture. I paper pleated around the top & bottom with more Mimosa Cardstock. I covered the seams with this really fab Prima Rose Ribbon. I added a Prima Wrinkle Rose in the corner. This is a gorgeous bloom- you have to play with it to get it to look the way you want, but since each petal is wired, that's easy to do.

Here's a closer peek at it:
Very realistic & pretty :)

Here's a profile pic of the finished canvas:

To finish it up I cut out the "Grandmother" title from my Cricut using the Mother's Day Cart. Seriously, it's such a great little cart- not just for Mother's Day! You've seen me use this cart a lot! 

You can find all all of the products used on this project at YMH Store---> Here. Lots of them on sale :) and if you love Prima Flowers (like I do :) you'll love the variety & prices.

Thanks so much for peeking! I'm off to catch up on Tuesday's episode of Lost I missed. I hope it's a good one!
Gotta Go!


  1. Be-E-U-T-Full! The colors are so soft and pretty and the flowers and lace make it so feminine. I think your Grammy is going to love it.

  2. Beautifully done. Love the soft colors. I've never worked with canvas before but the out come is stunning will have to give it a try.

  3. This is exquisite, what a perfect flower Karli

  4. Gorgeous! I know your grandmother loved it, and I just bought the cartridge, love it too!

  5. Beautiful project- and I am sure the sparkle from the Glimmer Mist makes it even more spectacular IRL. Wow- you are so creative! I bet your Grandmother will love this, I would!!!
