"Hello" Canvas by ~ Nadia Cannizzo

 Hello everyone. I hope this post find you well. 

Every once in a while I get the urge to create something REALLY feminine. Something packed with flowers. And I must tell you Manor House Creations always fulfills that urge ! Their flowers come in ALL sizes and colours. I know when I look into my collection of their flowers I will always find something to match whatever project I am working on. 

You will find the Manor House Creations blog HERE and a bunch of their stockists HERE 
Did you also know that The Flying Unicorn sells a whole heap of Manor House Creations at their store HERE 

I combined my flowers with a GORGEOUS birdcage chipboard piece from Donna Salazar Designs and some other mists and colour from Donna's collections too.  

To start with, I applied thick Gesso with a palette knife too my background and allowed it to dry. 

I then sprayed some Donna Salazar Designs Smooch Spritz Sprays. 

While that was drying, I heat embossed the birdcage with Chiffon Embossing Powder and once everything was dry I adhered it to the middle of the canvas. 

 Then I chose 3 vines from Manor House Creations, in Pink, Teal and White and overlapped them to create body and depth. 

 I also used 2 crochet butterflies from Manor House Creations and coloured them slightly with some ink.
