Welcome to the second project idea in this year's Valentines Day Series of projects. This sweet little mini canvas was so simple to make but I love how it turned out. I am inspired to make lots more of these little art pieces, so once I have got finished with all the other things I have planned, I will be let loose to play with my tiny embellishments that work so well on these small canvases.
I have used a scrap piece of paper I had to cover the front of the canvas, then brushed around the edge with some Distress ink, before adding a small chipboard birdcage, which I have painted with some white paint and slightly rubbed with a little black paint into the crevices. The flowers were from another project from the past, I can't remember which but I do tend to scavange embellishments and ribbons off old 'makes' as I can't bear to throw anything away!
The butterfly is a little brad and I have added a simple stamped word, brushed around the edges with Tattered Rose Distress Ink. This took me minutes to make, it really did but I am thrilled with the final piece that is taking pride of place above my fireplace. I know my dear Mum would have loved to have seen this one. So, if you have any of those mini canvases around, why not make one of these lovely display pieces and give it to a loved one or friend.
