I've Got a "Crush" on You Mini-Canvases

I'm very happy to share my mini-canvases created with the oh-so-fabulous "Crush" collection.  This great collection includes coordinating "love" inspired papers, diecuts, stickers, Authentic Life Cards, and pre-scored cards.


These mini-canvases measure 6"x6" and are actually just thick pieces of chipboard.  I began by cutting a 6"x6" piece of pattern paper, inking, and distressing the edges, then adhering to the front of each canvas.  Next, I cut, ink, distressed, and adhered a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of patterned paper.


Next, I chose a few of the lovely vintage Valentine images and paired with diecuts, stickers, and Authentic Life Cards.  I love the little diecuts tabs, hearts, and circles.  They make creating fun, interesting projects so easy!  I adhered some of the diecuts with adhesive foam squares for dimension. To finish, I accented my mini-canvases with painted chipboard words and adhesive pearls.


My favorite part of this collection...It's so original!  I love the combination of sweet, modern prints with traditional Valentine images.  And the colors...not just your typical red and pink.  The collection includes blues and lots of funky black/white prints.  Perfect!

What will you create with "Crush"?  These mini-canvases were so fun to create.  Now, I'm thinking cards, banners, treat containers...
