Inspirational Canvas -DT reveal for 2 Crafty and 13 Arts--Part 1

This Month, two of my DT reveals happened to be on the same day!! what better way to design for them than to combine their products. I must say that it was phenomenal to combine them. The 2 Crafty Chipboard Products worked so well with the 13 Arts mediums.

Here is my first creation this month:

"Love; inspirational canvas"

I created this canvas as a gift for a very special friend, who's taught me a lot this year and I thought what better way to thank her than to create something special from my heart. I found a very special quote that really resonated with the theme of the canvas.

To create the background, I glued some mesh onto the canvas. Then I used some pieces of 13 Arts papers and adhered them to the canvas using 13 Arts Gel Medium. 
I used lots of 2 Crafty chipboard shrubs: Set 1 and Set 2 which I first primed with 13 Arts gesso and then embossed with clear embossing powder. Finally I used a combination of gesso and 13 Arts Pearl Blue Sky ink to dab light blue over the leaves.

The picture above has a combination of two chipboard pieces: the Branch with Bird  and the hanging sign from the Garden Bench set. I also used the bench from the Garden Bench set in the picture below.
I added this cute little deer from the Prima Shabby Chic collection by Ingvild Bolme and some flowers from both Prima and Petaloo to match the 13 Arts papers.
