Eclectica Store Sample

I was so flattered when Rhonda and Ellen asked me if I'd like to create a sample for Eclectica. They gave me a choice of using the Maya Road Chipboard mini or using the new Canvas in the same shape. Since I had already completed a mini out of the chipboard dressform I decided to choose the canvas. I have been working from time to time with stickyback canvas and LOVE that, I even have a stash of regular canvas that I've been using to stamp on for my cards, etc... I LOVE how it turned out. It's filled with paper from Basic Grey's Hello Lucious and then some of those awesome Donna Downey Resin flowers by Prima. The backgrounds of all the "pages" were inked with distress inks in Victorian Velvet, Shabby Shutters, Spiced Marmalade, Crushed Sapphire and Frayed Burlap. The tags (two in each form were cut from an old manilla envelope (I save the ones from work no longer fit to be used as file folders). There are also stamped images by Hero Arts, Flowersoft, One Say it in Swirls (with crystals, pearls and those resin flowers( that I cut apart and used all over the book, laces from my stash and ribbons currently available from Eclectica. I also used some gold Glimmer Mist. I'll be happy to answer any questions, but really if you like the photos (sorry they aren't great, I almost forgot to take any...)

Here are the photos, but really you should see it in person!

yes I made that rosette by's tiny!

oh yeah, that is some filmstrip by Tim Holtz peeking out of one of the two uber minis I included in this mini

LOVE the trinket pins. Those butterflies are a MS punch, I only  have two "shape" punches in my stash. I got tis one a long time ago so if you like it you may have to search.

I did make a short video on my background technique for the canvas...
