Canvas Corp: Be Yourself Canvas

Hi everyone! Sorry if I have been MIA  but I have been cranking out projects for Creativation/CHA  which I can’t share until a later date but now I am able to share my first project of the year with y’all! 
Each year Canvas Corp crew members are asked to create a 4X4 canvas and this is what I came up with.
I spritzed the 4×4 Canvas with the following Glimmer and Simply Sheer Mists: Bahama Blue, Verdigris and Baby Blue…if you haven’t figured out these are some of my favorite colors to work with. 😊 Once it was dry I gathered up an assortment of Canvas Corp and 7 Gypsies cardstocks and started fussy cutting and punching out before I got down to layering everything onto the canvas.

I cut out from the following scraps of cardstocks I had laying on my desk: Architextures Old Window and Architextures Stenciled Crates cardstocks, roughed up the edges of the cardstock, added a piece of a doily and inked all before adhering to the canvas base.

I fussy cut the woman from the 7Gypsies Seamstress Pattern Cardstock and since there was and arm going a cross the body and the woman’s legs hung off the canvas I decided to cover it with a saying and banners. Also from my own stash I fussy cut butterfly wings from a printable and added to the back of the woman. I didn’t glue the wings down so I could curl to give them a little definition and I added Stickles to the wings. Also I added three little gems to the hat for a little bling.

The banners I cut from the Architextures Market Signs cardstock and the sentiment is from the 7Gypsies Gypsy Moments: Pose and Reflections cardstock. I inked all of the edges and cut the sentiment a part before adhering to the canvas.

From the 7Gyspies cardstock scraps I had laying around I distressed the edges of cardstock, inked and adhered around the edges of the canvas. 

The front of the canvas still looked a little bare so I punched out flowers and leaves from my Canvas Corp cardstock, shaped and added gems and flat back pearls to the flowers.

This was definitely a fun project to create. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Also I would like to submit this for the following challenge:

Word Art Wednesday: Anything Goes-Challenge #318-#319

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is awesome and enjoy creating!
