Rolled Heart Canvas

This canvas is based on one by Christy Tomlinson which is in her June 2011 tutorials.  I wanted a change from the very bright colours, so decided to choose subtle and soft tones.

Canvas size is 8"x10"

Once background pattern, and staining and painting was done, rolled up pages from an old Thesaurus which were also stained, sprayed and painted
before adding the hearts, added stamps and rub-ons

Close up of the hearts
I found these in my stash.  Had made them for another project but were excess to my needs at the time.  perfect for this exercise
the corrugated heart was cut from a packing box, then painted with gesso and paint
the heart is wrapped in one corner with 'sew easy floss'

the wording is from a rubber stamp
the clock embellishment is from my stash - not sure of the brand - removed the packaging a while ago

Canvas covered with old craft pattern and then covered with Picket Fence distress stain (wanted to keep the vintage look so did not want to cover with paint and lose effect)

old book pages stained and sprayed, ready to be rolled and glued on to canvas
