Corduroy Canvas for my daughter's 20th Birthday

It has definitely been a long time since I last blogged.  Life has thrown me some curves and I haven't had time to do any crafting.  Now I've worked on a few projects that I would love to share with you.  This first project is something that I wanted to make for my daughter.  We use to have this handsome little guy in our family but due to time issues we had to find him a new home.  So in memory of him I decided to make this so that my daughter can reflect back on all that he brought into our lives.

I was inspired by the talented Limor Webber during one of her ustream videos.  Thank you so much for giving me some mojo to create this beautiful canvas for my daughter to treasure for years to come.

I used sewing pattern paper and stamps from Tim Holtz to create the background paper.  I also used paper from a Recollection Line called Union Square.  Flowers were a mix between Prima Marketing Flowers, IamRoses, Wild Orchid Crafts and a handmade crochet flower that I made.  I used a stencil from Crafter's Workshop, Golden Molding Paste and Gesso and many sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang.  I used letters from American Crafts and the amazing Prima tools from Ingvild Bolme.  I fussy cut out some of the papers to add dimension and also added some flower sprays to the sides of the canvas.

I had a great time making this and hope that you enjoy it as well.  Comments are always welcome.
