Un Voyage Avec Toi- Canvas- Prima's Vintage Flower Focus

Hello Everyone!!
I have a Mixed Media canvas for you today that just happens to be my favourite project I created for Prima CHA 2014 Show.

I created it using the Cartographer collection and its now hanging in my bedroom so I can love it over again and over again.

We are having a Vintage Flower Focus today on the Prima blog and I thought this was the perfect project to showcase "Vintage"

This is an 11x14 Canvas that was covered in all different kinds of Mixed Media products to create an interesting textural background.

My Favorite part of the canvas is the hot air balloon. I created it using a template I printed from the Internet and cutting all the pieces out of different patterned papers and gluing them on card stock. Then I took some new Prima wire and created the strings holding the basket. I cut a picture of my kids sitting to fit perfectly inside the basket as if they are sitting on the edge about to go on a hot air balloon ride. Of course in real life that would be unsafe, however I thought the effect was perfect for the canvas.

Finally I added Prima flowers (paper and metal) and lots of embellishments. I also lined the top and bottom borders with new Prima trim.
