Tattered "JOY" Banner with Canvas Corp Brands

Tattered "JOY" Banner
I love this little beauty I created with many different 
Love the handmade tattered look with the pastel color tones for
a shabby vintage feel!

I first started to create canvas tags then when I had them line up 
together I was oh a banner maybe. I grabbed Canvas Corp Black/Ivory Plaid
card stock, cut to size. I distressed the edges added modeling paste with a stencil "lace"
then added Tattered Angels High Impact Paint in White, where I did
a layer of white wash let dry, added Tattered Angels glimmer mists in Red Tipped Rose,
Wedding Pink, Dazzling Diamonds, Pink Coral and Crushed Shells. Just
kept painting and drying to get the desired look I was going for "SHABBY"!

Punched the eyelet holes strung with the Canvas Corp Jute Rope (I pulled it 
apart to in half)...this helped threading it through the holes. Tied together.

The inspiration was the new 7Gypsies Seamstress paper collection and with Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia Die. Oh this paper collections is just delish and screams vintage, so I knew I wanted 
to use this for my banner. I die cut the poinsettia flower out of the paper and canvas then I 
white washed the pieces, added glitter to the edges...I also used the Tim Holtz Tattered Pine cone Die with the Canvas Corp Black/Ivory Plaid card stock and painted it blue with the Tattered Angels High Impact this paint cause it allows the pattern to show through!

chip board letters 
I painted white covered with thick layers
of Gesso and heat set them to bubble. After dried I painted again with the Tattered Angels High Impact the texture!

Last panel I embellished with an canvas ornament
I die cut out another Tim Holtz Carved Ornaments...I ran it through a Maggie
Holmes music embossing folder...
painted it with Gesso with Rose Color Fragments, Glitter and buttons.
Love Love Love

Last touch was covering all the panels with Diamond Dust Glitter, 
also added 7Gypsies Lace 
and trims glued to the bottom of the banner for shabby feel. 

I really enjoyed gathering my Canvas Corp Brands supplies and created this
fabulous Tattered "JOY" Banner for my home. There is nothing better than creating your very own Christmas decorations and gifts...why not start by stopping over at the Canvas Corp Brands Shop and start gathering!!! Thanks so much for stopping by get creative and make memories.

Merry Christmas, Peggy Lee

Altered Shadow Box Stand-Christmas Decoration!

When I bought this metal sign stand this summer I knew I wanted to 
create a shadow box home decor piece for the Christmas Season.
The 7Gypsies new paper collection Seamstress was perfect with
a vintage feel and beautiful.

I started with a metal sign stand painted it 
with chalk white paint...sanded it down to remove
areas of paint to give a shabby look.
Built a shadow box with chipboard pieces glued them
together painted with gesso and chalk paint.

Using the 7Gypsies Seamstress paper collection cut paper in 
sections to cover the box, gave them white wash 
and distressed the edges.

For the backing piece I ran through a Teresa Collins
embossing folder to give the quilt pattern paper texture.

After all the hard work was done came the best part
Embellishing!!! I didn't gather anything I used what was  
laying around on my desk...bits and pieces in my junk jars.

I had a few flowers laying about changed the color tones of this 
Petaloo flower with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist

Love the Snow-Tex on the edges of the flowers and pine cones!

Tiny bottle brush tree with glitter, snow-tex and pearls...nestled 
in with the 7Gypsies logo car making cute.

And my projects wouldn't be complete without my vintage mother
of pearl buttons...tucked in throughout.
Another vintage find was the tiny Bell in the upper right corner...I found
those vintage bells last years (so reminds me of my childhood decorations).

Hope you enjoyed gazing upon my altered stand...It's given
me a spark in the Holiday crafting! Love the products you see
be sure to jump over to the Canvas Corp Brands website and
 get a start on your holiday shopping!
