Quote on a canvas

Hi all

Made a  home decor with an inspirational quote. I liked this quote CARPE DIEM which means Seize the day, put very little trust in tomorrow (the future).  

I bought this hexogonal canvas in an exhibition last sunday and first applied gesso all over it. I then applied the distress inks broken china all over it and peacock feathers to the borders and sprinkled some water,made the diecut doily as a stencil and inked with distress inks. You can find the doily stencil behind the tree. I applied textured paste on the branch and leaves stencil and put quilled flowers. Painted the branch and leaves with acrylic paints.

stamped with hero arts leafy vines background stamp with peacock feathers distress inks on left side and right side used the prima stencil with the sponge dauber. 


 Diecut the alphabets 4 times each so that it gives a chipboard look (suggested in one of Tejal's cards). 4th layer of the alphabets is the gold glittered paper. 'Seize the day' is the chipboard alphas which are gessoed  and painted with blue silk glaze. I don't really like the font of it  but i wanted to put the small letters so had to go with it. 



                           The white bird is the prima's shabby chic treasure, cut the clock from the prima 12 by 12 pattern paper and inked the edges with vintage photo. Added the dienamics flourish die and burlap butterfly on the bottom. Added the pearls lace which i had from long time around the edge of the canvas and finished with some pearls,sequins and glitters.
