Double Layer Canvas - Wish Come True

Hi lovely crafters out there,

I'm up super duper early today to share a mixed media canvas created for SaCrafters which I will also be submitting for Scrap Around The World Challenge.

I have used a 2 canvases on this project for a pop up effect. Base is a 9"x 12" flat canvas panel and the top is a 7" x 9" stretched canvas.

There is alot going on here, from the texture background to the mosaic effect using scrap pieces of chipboard diecuts on the front canvas. Most of all, I love the heart gear which is one of the new items from SaCrafters store. Hence it became the centre of attraction.

I'm also proud to mention that I managed to transfer some used embellishments taken from an old layout to this mixed media canvas project. That's the idea behind scrapping right? To use "scrap" pieces :)

Do check out my 6mins video on the whole process. 
In the video, I have also listed out all the supplies I have used at every stage. 
So you may want to get ready a pen and paper to note down any details.

And these are the direct link to the SaCrafters items used. Remember to type in Priscillafans for a 10% discount in SaCrafters store.

Mini Fairy

Sentiment Tag

Heart Gears

When creating the canvas, I have actually worked around this lovely mood board from Scrap Around The World March Challenge.

I was inspired by 3 things in the mood board.
1) In the top left photo, the background and horse mane has lead me to create the the crackle and sparkling base. The horse mane looks soft and feathery; inspiring some feathers going onto the canvas.

2) The quote "There is sunshine in my soul today". That leads me to being happy, hence the "be happy" tag on the hot air balloon. In addition to that, the pretty sunshine also means "the start of a fabulous morning" which you can find this quote on the chipboard embellishment above the mini fairy. With all the motivational tags, hopefully everything goes well. Hence, may all our wishes come true!

3) The color of Yellow and shades of Blue in the mood board inspired the whole background color. There are some tint of greens on the canvas cause yellow + blue = green. Agree?

Alrighty that's all for today. From the sunny side of Singapore, I wish all a great week ahead :)

Happy Crafting and thanks for visiting my blog.
