With wedding season right around the corner, we thought it would be appropriate to share an altered-art project created by DT member Erica. Our "Everlasting" collection, released last spring, is timeless. The colors used are black, white, cream and grey, and are beautiful when used alone, or you can add the color or colors of your choice to personalize and give a pop of color! The stickers and cardstock accents are themed around wedding, anniversary and all things love! And now, on to Erica!
Today I’m sharing a canvas I altered using Authentique Paper's "Everlasting" collection. This collection is absolutely gorgeous! I love the classic black and white color palette, it offers versatility so you can add pops of any color to match your photos or palette!
I started with a 5"x12" canvas and layered several sheets of the 12x12 pattern papers. The patterns are so beautiful when used together. They are not too overwhelming or "loud" so you truly can layer them one on top of another without it being too busy.
I also added a photo and several of the "enhancements" 3x4 cut-apart paper. I use the cut apart paper in many of my projects, they are ideal for card making, layouts, mini albums and of course, altered art projects like the canvas being shared today.
Next, I added lots of texture - lace, pearls, ribbon, tulle, etc., just to give some dimension and visual intrigue.
Finally, I added floral stems, leaves and flowers as the finishing touch to my canvas.
If you haven't added this collection to your paper stash, you should. Much like the "little black dress" classic patterns are always in style and useable for projects year-round, no matter the occasion!
