Un Voyage Avec Toi- Canvas- Prima’s Vintage Flower Focus

Hello Everyone!!
I have a Mixed Media canvas for you today that just happens to be my favourite project I created for Prima CHA 2014 Show.
I created it using the Cartographer collection and its now hanging in my bedroom so I can love it over again and over again.
We are having a Vintage Flower Focus today on the Prima blog and I thought this was the perfect project to showcase “Vintage”
This is an 11×14 Canvas that was covered in all different kinds of Mixed Media products to create an interesting textural background.
My Favorite part of the canvas is the hot air balloon. I created it using a template I printed from the Internet and cutting all the pieces out of different patterned papers and gluing them on card stock. Then I took some new Prima wire and created the strings holding the basket. I cut a picture of my kids sitting to fit perfectly inside the basket as if they are sitting on the edge about to go on a hot air balloon ride. Of course in real life that would be unsafe, however I thought the effect was perfect for the canvas.
Finally I added Prima flowers (paper and metal) and lots of embellishments. I also lined the top and bottom borders with new Prima trim.
