Bushel & A Peck by ~Donna

Hello my peeps! Today I have another 8x10 canvas to share with you. This canvas was so much fun to make. I used some of my old papers with Hazel & Ruby stencil masks and some of my new products from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

This canvas is special to me because I sing this song multiple times a day to my grandson. I made sure that I added that note to the back of the canvas so that we will remember this when he is older.

I started by decoupaging wood paper to a canvas then created a distressed wood look with Liquitex acrylic paint. Then I added the stencil masks to the canvas and painted over them with acrylic paint. I pressed dictionary paper into the wet paint and let it dry a bit then pulled the paper and the stencil masks off and it left behind the text (it's backwards but you can't tell from far away). 

I used a ball point pen around the letters to make sure that they would stand out against the background. I created a sparkly glaze with my new Pigment Powder from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Beacon's Fast Finish Decoupage and painted over the words "Love" "bushel" and one of the stars. I used the extra glaze to splatter some sparkly goodness all over the canvas.

I also added some stars with my new E-Z Stars Runner, sprinkled them with Mix'd Media Inx Embossing Powder in Leather and heat set them for some awesome coppery looking stars. I finished the edges of the canvas with Driftwood, Bluejay and Sparrow Mix'd Media Inx CHOX and stamped some text with Midnight CHOX.
