A Canvas with Graphic 45's Ladies Diary

Ladies Diary is such a fabulous collection and I was so thrilled to see it come back as a Deluxe Collector's Edition. I built a fun 8" x 8" canvas using Ladies Diary and a great stamp from the Cityscapes collection using lot of layers to create dimension. I also added in some chipboard pieces to embellish and of course, lots of pretty Petaloo flowers!
The quote is G45 Cityscapes stamp, love this sentiment! 

I started this piece by adhering a distressed paper cut to fit the canvas.  Then I masked on a pattern using super heavy gesso.  Next I added some Creative Embellishments chipboard pieces, page corners, clockface and flourish, that I heat embossed.

Now you can layer on your papers and fussy cut pieces.  I used Spellbinder's dies to cut a couple of layers for my sentiment and popped them up.  Rather than use foam tape, I used scrap cardboard to pop up these layers, it gives a really sturdy surface and it's free!   I'm sure you know that foam tape can get expensive if you use it alot as I do.
