Canvas and Love you Always (two projects) - Natasha Naranja Aguirre

Hello again!  I'd like to share a canvas that I REALLY enjoyed making.  I just let my imagination and creativity run wild with this one and I love how it turned out!
The background of the canvas is decorated with muslin, ceramic stucco and lace.  I inked, spritzed and painted all of the elements to get this gorgeous color.
The floral clusters are made up of Prima flowers, Green Tara flowers and the Dusty Attic Floral Corners (DA0848).  The little diamante hearts were sent to me all the way from Australia by my bestie!

The chipboard element framing the canvas is The Dusty Attic's Devine Frame Set (DA0733).  To get the gorgeous color and texture shown here, I sprayed the chipboard with Black Orchid Silver by Lindy's Stamp Gang and then used a grid stamp to stamp clear embossing ink onto it.  I then added Hibiscus Rose Orange embossing powder, also by Lindy's Stamp Gang, and heat embossed the piece.
This  layout I have to also share with you is created by using the Cold Country collection by 7 Dots Studio.  I love the subtle tones of these papers.
I added a touch of color to my background by spritzing Lindy's Stamp Gang ink, and I added texture using Ceramic Stucco and a template by The Crafters Workshop.  The little drops you see are called Dew Drops.  Love them!
To create my title I combined a cut piece from the Dusty Attic chipboard element called, "A Lifetime is..." (DA0929) and the word "always" from Mini Words #1 pack (DA0386).
My floral cluster is a combination of lovely flowers by Prima Marketing and chipboard scrolls by The Dusty Attic (DA0760 Scroll #9 and DA0762 Scroll #10). Thanks for visiting!  See you next time!
