Canvas art.

I promised I would share my canvas art.  Today I finished it off!  I am really pleased with it - I've used bits of treasures that I love, a photo that was always one of my favourites and it will find a happy place on a wall in our house.
I painted the whole canvas a creamy colour and also sponged the top half.  Along the bottom I've used Sahara Sand ink with the En Francais BG stamp from Stampin'Up. 
I've used some of my favourite lace, pattern paper from the Nook and Pantry range by Basic Grey - can you see the lace doily pattern on the paper? Then there is some fabric with the roses, hessian and some of the ruffled paper flowers with button centres.  You can refer to this post to see the details on where you can view the tutorial for these kinds of flowers.
This photo was taken on holidays a few years back - bird on a washing line wire.
Thanks for poping past!

This is a gorgeous layout Chantelle. So rich with the lovely textures of the lace, hessian and fabric. Love the little birdy pic too. It looks perfect here.
