MR DT: Canvas - We

Hi crafty friends! It's my turn on the Maya Road blog today! This time I am back with a canvas! I wanted to create something to document my upcoming wedding and I am excited to put this together!

I do love hexagons. This is one shape that is special yet not over cluttering when placed on layouts. You can do the same layout with other shapes as well. I first treated the canvas with Gesso, and then painted with colors of my choice - pink and a hint of green. I opted for the more dreamy colors in this layout. Then I added the hexagon chipboard and roses vintage lace trim - cloud directly onto the background. I painted these to match the background color so they do not look overwhelming.


Then, I misted the chipboard swirls in silver to match the overall color tone. I added this to 3 parts of the layout in order to achieve a visual triangle to balance things out. 



After the background elements were done, I added the hexagon box to the canvas. Decorating this was easy. First, I added jute & twine cording to the wood spools. Next was the painting portion. I painted the royal key charms with gesso, so they do not look overwhelming against the entire layout. I took the heart element from the Chipboard Say What Speech Bubbles and also painted it red. Flowers are my best friends in crafting! Here I used 2 of my favorite Mayaroad flowers - Felt Roses & Tu-Tu Tulle Flowers - for layering. Last but not least, this dreamy birdie here took my breathe away! They are such a pretty sight, I could not resist but to add them to the layout as well!


After the main frame was done, I moved on to decorate the other parts of the canvas layout. I selected some chipboards with love phrases from my Maya Road stash and painted them. You can choose to add glitter to the words in order to create attention.



Here comes my favorite part of the entire canvas! Here, I used the pretty resin bows and acrylic tokens for layering. The resin bow was painted to match the colors of the entire layout. I really love how subtle yet pretty the acrylic tokens are! For sure it will be appearing again for my projects! 
Next, I added some more Tu-Tu Tulle flowersfelt rosesdaisy clip, pearl flowers and tassel for layering. The tassels are super yummy! I love to use them on my projects! Love how it comes in many different colors!

Hope you like what I shared with you today!
