Strong - Authentique - The Scrapbook Store

 It's a cold Winters day, perfect for being inside and catching up on blogging!!  I just wanted to share with you a canvas I made using up some of the left-over bits in my kit from The Scrapbook Store.  I've been working with the 'Strong' collection by Authentique ☺

This canvas uses some of the pattern papers in this collection, some Prima, chipboard, Prima pegs, lots of Silks Acrylic Glaze and a few other bits and pieces in my stash.
My canvas started by adding layers of pattern paper to create the background.  I've swiped over some areas with the Yellow Rose Glaze - this colour goes more towards a mustard shade of yellow, so it's not too bright ☺
Here are some close-up's:

 I've made use of some Prima packaging and added it in as a tag behind the photo.  The chipboard title has been painted with the Yellow Rose glaze.  There's a lot of background action - painting with bubble wrap, using a chevron stencil and fun little sequins.

 The Prima pegs are from the Lady Bird collection and they fit in well with my colour scheme.  I've also used some Prima blooms.
 Behind the photo I've made up some tags using some lined cardstock - these have been given a light coat of water and the Yellow Rose Glaze - i've also used the Glaze to do some stamping and splatters - these little pots of paint are so versatile!!
This balloon chipboard is from 2 Crafty Chipboard - I've used Silks Acrylic Glaze in Silver Bells   to give it some colour - with some stamping, ink, a Prima bloom and flair badge, the balloon has become an embellishment for my canvas!!  I've used some chevron washi tape along the edges.
I have used lots of different stamps, mediums and embellishments - if you have any questions please leave them in the comments ☺

I hope you've enjoyed my inspiration for the Strong collection by Authentique - it's available in store as well as lots of other wonderful products.  Don't forget about the EOFY sale - lots of items reduced - check them out today ☺
Enjoy your weekend ♥
