Mixed Media Home Decoration - Canvas Corp Creative Crew

Hello All :)

I have not yet really mentioned very much about my assignment to the design team for Canvas Corp Brands this year. I applied and was accepted in November or December....but I have been working my way into finding out about their products and my responsibilities as a 'Canvas Corp Creative Crew' member!
For those who have not heard of Canvas Corp Brands, they have three brands under one umbrella. 'Canvas Corp' covers products such as papers and sewn canvas and burlap items. Also stretched canvases. Then they also have Tattered Angels which has many types of sprays and paints and glazes. I am sure most of you have used or seen Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist..as it was one of the first mica infused ink sprays to come out on the market. The third brand in the set is 7 Gypsies. They have printed papers as well as ephemera and findings. rub ons, tissue tapes, etc..all in a vintage style. I am starting out this journey with a grand total of 3 mists in my 'collection' of Canvas Corp products LOL. I had to make an order!
Well, my order has not arrived yet but there was a challenge I found interesting to try. Canvas Corp is pairing up this month with a blog site called Words and Paintery . This site offers a monthly color board challenge paired with a quote or phrase to inspire you.
You know I love me a good color challenge! So off I went to search around my town for a few Canvas Corp products to try this challenge! I was successful in finding some red and brown options..but no blue products at all. I also found some 7 Gypsies scrapbooking paper and rub ons. Also a few cards of charms and some tissue type tape. So I was off to a good start.

Here is the project I came up with :)






I also made a video of my process making this project. If you are interested in watching it here is the link :)
