If you haven’t had a chance to as yet, you really must check out the new ‘Hide and Seek’ collection now available. So many adorable prints and colour ways. There was so many things I could think of to create, but today I am going to share with you an ‘Off the Page’ project I have completed.
The little Fox die cut, specialty paper really caught my eye. I decided to create a canvas wall art for my studio.
I wanted my artwork to have a woodsy or vintage boho feel to it.The die cut is brown to its main side but I decided to flip it and use the reverse which was white.I felt this gave it a much softer feel.
Lots of varying papers were used to back the die cut. This process was really simply! I merely traced each shape with a pencil before cutting and adhering to the back of the die cut.
Originally for this project I had selected a 30cm x 30cm canvas. In the end, because I wanted the elongated feature of feathers and draping vines to one side, I went with a 30cm x 40cm canvas.
I made a lot of the flowers using the new Art Foam sheets and many floral dies. I also added lots of the Paper Blooms as well. The Art Foam is SO easy to work with and I love the effect it gave.
I really wanted the Fox to stand out from the canvas so I cut up strong cardboard from a delivery box and added this to the back before gluing it to my canvas.You could also use foam strips or dots.
The gold feathers I used have been sitting in my stash for a while but I finished off my canvas by adding in some of the wooden feather flourishes. I didn’t add colour to them, leaving them in their raw state as I love the rustic element it added.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my canvas today.
