Valentines Day ~ Small Canvas

LOVE IS IN THE AIR....

Here is a canvas I created this week for AlteredPages.com

With Valentines just around the corner... a small Valentine canvas would look great on my desk!



Supplies
Altered Pages Collage sheet : Always in Love
Small Canvas or Art Board
Chalk Paint - Timeless
Chalk Paint - Rouge
Gel medium
Cherry Mist
Black ink
Ruby Red Glitter
Flowers
Glue



Start off with a blank canvas and paint it with Chalk Paint - Timeless and Chalk Paint - Rouge


While the canvas is drying fussy cut image from Altered Pages Collage sheet : Always in Love


With gel medium adhere small doily, then spritz with Cherry Mist, let dry.


Adhere fussy cut image with gel medium, let dry. Then with Black ink  on finger  go around the edge of the canvas to frame it.




Add just a touch of glitter with glue to the corners and adhere flowers!



Love the vintage look of the canvas.


Hope I have inspired you to create your own Valentine canvas!

Creativation SPLATTER ROOM!


At Creativation 2017 the Splatter Room was sponsored by 3M, Scotch Blue Painters Tape,  DecoArt and Pinspiration!



 
They were demonstrating that the new 3M Scotch Blue Painters Tape did not let paint seep when painting.
 
Here I am suited up ready for the SPLATTER ROOM!  Before we went in we prepped our canvas with stripes of the 3M Scotch Blue Painters Tape. 

I am in the far corner getting ready to add yellow paint to my canvas.
 

SPLATTER...

SPLATTER...

Now I am picking another color to SPLATTER...

 and SPLATTER again.
 
When finished we left our paintings at the booth to dry!

 Here is my finished canvas!  With the tape removed. Pretty cool demonstration!

 
If you ever have a chance to SPLATTER paint I highly recommend taking the opportunity.  I would love to do this at home... I  just don't have room for a splatter booth!
 



Tim Holtz ~ Idea-ology at Creativation

Tim Holtz Ideology booth is always over the top.... this year was not any different!
 

 
Tim is always surrounded by people wanting a picture with him... I waited and when he was between pictures... then I shouted, "hey Tim can I get your picture?" as I held up my camera and smiled for me!
 
Enjoy Idea-ology!
 












 

Just back from CREATIVATION aka CHA!

Over the next few days I plan to share a few of my hundreds of photos I took while there!

One of the awesome features of the show was a little trolley they had that would stop any time you wanted to jump off and let others on.


 The trolley pictured would take you on around on the red route on the map below...
 


Here are a few photos that I took while riding on the back of the trolley...
