Celebrate with a Spring Canvas!

Hello Thursday!

It's been such an amazing week of projects showcasing GlueArts and My Little Shoebox!

Today is no exception!

Designers Patti Milazzo and Cheri Wenger both have just what you need! A sweet spring canvas and card! Make the canvas and card and give these to someone special!!
Spring Canvas
Designer: Patti Milazzo 

Tip: As I work on projects and cut up my U-Cut-It Adhesive Foam, I often have small pieces left over. Instead of discarding even the smallest pieces, I’ll place them into one of the 3 Pack Cartridge containers that I’ve kept…they’re great for storage! Then on my next project, I’ll look through my container for the foam size that I need before cutting a new sheet.

Glue Arts:
Glue Glider Pro with
1/4 Perma Tac Cartridge Refill - Pro
3D Combo Pac – U Cut It
Extreme Micro Squares
My Little Shoebox:
Home Tweet Home Pattern Paper – Birds of a Feather, A Place to Nest, Cotton Candy, Out on a Limb and Birdhouse
Home Tweet Home Cardstock Stickers
Other: 8” x 10” canvas, glitter glue and buttons

1. Cut pattern paper to cover canvas. Distress edges and use Glue Glider Pro with Perma Tac Adhesive to apply paper to canvas.
2. Cut blocks of pattern paper to segment the paper covered surface of the canvas. I knew that I wanted to use the branch and tree stickers so I created those blocks first. I then cut a block to fit the journal shape and filled in the rest of the space as needed.

3. Cut pattern paper to be framed by each of the blocked paper pieces. Then apply stickers or images cut from pattern paper. Add stitching if you wish. Use Glue Arts U-Cut-It Adhesive foam to layer these pieces and create a dimension.
4. Use Extreme Micro Squares to attach buttons or other dimensional accents.
5. Apply glitter glue for a little extra sparkle to complete.

Attach those panels to card front.
