Blessed Canvas with a Transfering Large Bling Tutorial!

This was my first attempt at a canvas project (other than the mini book canvas kits) and I have to say I Love the way it turned out and I already have another in the works, lol! I went to my very first Private Reserve also (boy lots of first here, lol) and all I can say is if you Ever get a chance to go to one, YOU MUST GO! I got to go to the Atlanta, GA Private Reserve and had a BLAST! Busy the whole time I was there and this was one of the projects that we did! It is done with a 10 x 10 Canvas. I swayed from the actual directions with the kit and this is what I “re-did” to show you one variation of it! The inks I used were Amaretto and Mocha Mama PowderPuff Chalk Inks (two of my much loved colors) The Paper line that is used on the canvas and in the kit is the Damsel in Distress line and the chipboard pieces were cut just for this kit. Actually the chipboard corner pieces at the top are the negative pieces from the frames that I cut apart and stacked with some bling for extra dimension (I can‘t throw anything away, lol)!

The extras I used were minimal, Flowers: Recollections from Michael’s and Bling Swirl: Forever in Time and additional Bling: Hobby Lobby. The feather’s are just some I had in my stash. That’s it, very minimal extras and actually the kit came with some Frosted Butterflies that I didn’t use along with a few extra flourishes that I can add to another project. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did creating it!

Now I don’t know about you but I love the Blingy Swirls but I hated fighting with them when trying to use them and part of the reason I did this tutorial was because while I was at the Atlanta Private Reserve Patsy (the owner of Quick Quotes) and I were talking about the easiest way to transfer bling and she said if I figure out a way to let her know, so here you go Patsy, I figured it out, this ones for you, LOL! 

I was bound and determined to figure out a way to use them so they would go where I wanted them to go and not stick to everything else so I got me out some packing tape and stuck a few pieces together………

Then I took the stickiness off by sticking it to my pants (yes these are my PJ’s it was really early in the AM before everyone was up, lol)……….

Then I put the “used” tape with still some tack over the bling that I wanted to transfer and pressed it to the bling…………

And then I started to peel back the tape with the bling attached to the tape and it stayed exactly where I wanted it to, perfectly!………….

Then I figured out where I wanted it to be positioned on my project, pressed it down, and started pulling back the tape, again perfectly in place!…………….

And here is the finished project with perfectly placed bling!!!! Now how simple was that!
And I added a few more close ups of some of the other pictures.
Some of the flowers with the feathers!
 Another angle and to show a bit of the dimension.
 And I even used a few of the throw away pieces from the laser cuts from the frames as some popped fancy unconventional photo corners! (Like I keep saying I just can't throw anything away, lol) Added some bling and you'd never know it should have been trash, lol!
Well I sure hope if you made it to the end of this book, (oops I mean post, lol) you have enjoyed it. I will be doing more of the Canvas projects, I really enjoyed this. And please make sure you stop over at the Quick Quotes Blog on Tuesdays, there will be more Techniques for, "Trendy Tuesday's"!

Have a great rest of your weekend and see you all tomorrow with BBTB2 for a new challenge and end of the month Blog Hop!

((Hugs)) and Take Care,

Pretty Canvas project! I've never tried to work with canvas but you make it look so tempting! Another good way to transfer bling is to use dry tape. It has a sticky side and a not sticky side and it works well too. I also use this for paper piecing and it works very well. :)
