Mixing Some Mediums With Canvas Corp.

Hi all I have some canvas fun to share with you today. I created this 12 x12 canvas using Canvas Corp canvas and burlap and 7 Gypsies embellishments. Did you hear!? 7Gypsies will now be part of Canvas Corp!! Now that is a match made in heaven. Their styles compliment each other and I hope my project today shows just one way they do :)

 12 x12 canvas with a 4 x4 stretched burlap. A burlap rectangle tag. a couple of the small paper bags, one ivory scalloped tag and T-Pin and three small clothes pins. I also used some of 7 gypsies ephemera, stamp, and glass bottle.
I used Gel Medium to adhere the ephemera to the canvas, which also added a resist to the canvas. I added Golden Artist paint to add a pop of color.  I gave the canvas an antiqued look with Glimmer mist in Walnut Gold, and Tim Holtz distressInk in Freyed Burlap. I added beads to the glass bottle and a crystal heart to accompany it on it's framed shelf.

Don't you agree that the two fit hand in hand. I hope this gives a little source of inspiration and can't wait to see what the two names come up with next. Have a wonderful Thursday.
