My first canvas/shadowbox project

Align Center

Bought this canvas 2 years ago & finally have a good idea to use it ! lol !

Instructions by Lucy Edson over at Bad Girls' pre-Christmas workshop class.

The original idea is to use 2 5x5'canvas taped together so that they can open etc .

Since I only had one pc of this rectangular canvas & I wasnt going to go look for more
I just used up what I have on hand.

The backside of the canvas became a shadowbox making use of the niche already there !
A very fun & quick project to try for sure !

The canvas side was covered with a piece of 1930s vintage magazine page & then I used the AL chipboard snowflakes as a mask & glimmer misted with Jazz Blue & Snow Angel although the pearlescent shimmer is lost here .

Also used up a Magistical Memories folk star , Anna Griffin dimensional stickers , crystal shreds.

How very fun this canvas is, Pearl! I was really inspired by Lucy's piece, too. Love how hers hinged, but I think you're clever to just use what you have and make it double-sided. I really like all your vintage inspired trinkets on here and the snowflake masking.
Just gave you an award on my blog! ;)
