Helmar + Authentique = Heaven on Canvas!!

Inspiration Word Canvas Art...

  Authentique Paper.

I started with an 8x11 stretched Canvas.. using my Helmar 450 Quick Dry glue.. adhering the papers on the front of the canvas and the sides.. I wanted a dry look to this so nothing was added on top.
Distressing the sides with a sanding block and some Tim Holtz brushed Corduroy ink. it gave me the effect to the sides of the canvas.

Now this amazing frindged flower.. I learned how to make TAing for Becky Fleck this weekend at Crop & Create .. she is one amazing teacher.. using some more 450 Quick Adhesive to stick it on the paper.. this holds up amazingly..
I also made some smaller mum style fringed flowers..

I also rolled some of the paper for the stems.. on the paper pieced flowers I used the liquid scrap dots to give me the height I wanted.. and for the flat parts of papers and icons I used some Acid Free Helmar glue.. I just love how fast every thing holds.. ( liquid scrap dots does take longer.. but so worth the time) ...

Here is side of the Canvas.. love the dark browns and light aqua blues.. with that pop of orange.. it was also perfect for the beautiful May Arts floral ribbon in orange.. adding that extra pop...
seeing that the saying on the icon tag said.. " plant kindness & gather love" I used some of the sticker
words diction.. and scattered words around the canvas.. so when I look at it, it will remind myself to do these things daily.. inspirational canvas home decor.. gotta love that!!

this was my project over on the Helmar Design Team Blog..
I had so much fun making this.. and it helped with how fast this glue sets.

Now check out all the beautiful new papers on the Authentique Blog.. i want more

.. it never ends.. I just love paper!!

Have a wonderful day.

This is some beautiful canvas work! Love those fringe flowers. Hopefully someone on youtube has directions on how to make them ;) Your creation is very balance and well put together. I am not an orange fan, but this would definitly work on my studio wall. Awesome job!
