Wedding Canvas

I thought it was about time I uploaded a scrapbook page as I haven't done so for a while.Well it's not even just a page,but a canvas. This was a wedding canvas I did for my class tonight. The swirls were piping cord and then coated the lot with white acrylic paint.The paper below the photo and that the little pocket is made from, is vellum with a lovely flock effect flower on it. The pins through the large organza bow were hand made using headpins,pearls and crystals.The title was cut from white pearl card on the Pazzles. The picture is of my great aunt who got married in 1931. I absolutely love the styles from back then and so wanted to use this picture.


Thanks for looking

Your canvas is beautifully done Cass it's great how much texture you can get just using white. Just thought I'd let you know that the papers I used on my snowmen cards are digi papers from The Sweet Shoppe by Zoe Pearn same artist as does the MME ones.
