What’s your canvas?

Today, mine was the bottom of an old dresser drawer.  We had to put one to rest about a year ago, but I couldn’t bear to throw these clean blank slates away.

I’ve had my eye on this label from The Graphics Fairy for a bit, so I used it in this mixed media plaque.

This project required a lot of stash busting, which you know I live for.  I printed out the image on white card stock and cut it out. I aged the paper by wiping it with brown ink on a damp paper towel. I always ink the edges to give it a finished appearance. 

I Mod Podged it onto the section of particle board.

Instead of painting, I left the natural color of the board and stamped all over it with a tiled stamp and ivory ink. I edged the outside by taking messy scraps of muslin and loosely braiding them and them gluing them to the board.

Have you ever tried this stuff?  I kid you not, the bottles that I have must be ten years old.  Or pretty close. I use an old butter knife to spread some over a stencil if I want some texture.  

Guess who gets this?  Dolly, that lucky girl! You know, she has the best mommo ever.  Say it with me. 

Where was I?  This is a chipboard letter that I covered in Distress Stickles (Dusty Concord).  It’s sort of obvious I was going for a shabby look.  I popped it in the corner with 3D foam squares.

Here is one of the ragged little muslin flowers that I put in three of the corners.  It was very gratifying to use up all of those scraps!  Even the purple beads were in my stash.  You can also see a closer shot of the textured paint.

Thanks for joining me today for another Brag Monday project.  What would I do without them?
