Valentine Altered Canvas

Happy Valentine's Day everyone.  This is Cheri from DJ's Sundries and I am so happy to be sharing on the day that we celebrate everything about love.  The project that I am sharing with you today has been in my mind for a long time as a gift for my husband.  However when I sat down to make it, it took a completely different direction than I had originally planned.  Also, this project was inspired by Pinterest.  Head over to my blog if you want to see a picture of the inspiration.  For now, lets get started with the project.

3 Girl JAM "Christmas Candy" ribbon
12X12 canvas
K & Company Valentine's paper
Prima Flowers
Recollections Leaves
Icicle Stickles
Tattered Angels Glimmer Spray in "Candy Apple Red" and "Tutu Pink"
Tim Holtz Seasonal Paper Stash and swirl mask
Heart charm
Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge
Owl and Thistle "French" doilie
Mod Podge

The canvas was first sprayed with the Candy Apple Red spray using the negative space of some hearts that I cut out for another project earlier in the month.  I then sprayed a small heart in Tutu Pink between the bottom 2 hearts.  I think the detail was lost from that heart though.  The Tim Holtz mask was applied on one side of the canvas and sprayed with Tutu Pink.  It was then alternated on the other side and sprayed.  If you head over to DJ's Sundries, you can view the video that walks you through the canvas.
Thanks for stopping by.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things.
