Canvas scrapbooking

This is a little project I've been creating in the past few days. For my love of fabric, buttons, felt and paper - I've combined them all with some stampin' inbetween.
This photo of my adorable Caden was taken by my sister Aimee and has been enlarged to a 5x7. I've made a collage effect of various cardstock, fabric, hemp and ribbon.
For the embellishments, I've used the sweet Forest Friends stamp set. I've inked up the tree and stamped directly onto the fabric, then placed a button in the centre, tied off with twine.
The tag is recycled from some clothing; I've cut a piece of felt for the heart image and added a few coloured buttons. Then I've stamped up the little bunny image in Close to Cocoa onto Vanilla cardstock, cut out, then mounted onto the felt. I've used some Celery ribbon to finish off the tag. Here's a closer look at the embellisment.

Well, this was so much fun and I really enjoyed working on the canvas with some different mediums. I love combining stamping with fabric and seeing how they come together. This peice of art will make a lovely display that I'm very pleased with!

Oh, Chantelle... this is SO beautiful. I've been staring at it for a few minutes, I can only imagine how gorgeous it is in person. Excellent job, once again! I really, really love this work of art!
