Sewing Mends the Soul, Reverse Canvas by Lesa Bird

Hi there
Today I'm have a little play with Couture Creations Inicutz Dies, Glamour Days,
So I'm playing with a reverse canvas.

Canvas Sketch

Finished Canvas


 Paint the timber  edges of the canvas (reverse side of canvas)  then cover the complete edges and inner canvas, with Couture Creations Pattern Papers from the Sew Jo Paper Pad

Using  Glamour Days Dies, and bits of fabric, decorate the frame


   Dress Form die cut twice, one in black cardstock and another in a glitter paper to create the dress.

Albert and Simonetta die cut twice, one in black cardstock and one with patterned paper to create the dress.

Cut 2 tape images from  Sew Jo patterned paper and adhere one diagonally to the background ruffling slightly, and mount the other on a strip of chipboard, for the bottom of the outside frame

Sewing Kit Die  cut  one each of the machine bobbin and thread card from black cardstock.
Wrap a little twine around the machine bobbin and highlight the thread card using a white gel pen

Sewing Kit Die, die cut the Sewing Machine from black cardstock, then  doodle a little on it
and then coated with Dimensional Magic

Heritage Die, die cut from a piece of Sew Jo patterned paper and place in the top corner of the frame and place a flower on top.

Project Tag Die, cut one in black cardstock and add a little doodling and a sewing quote.

arrange everything onto your canvas and if you like you can add some other embellishments to suit  have fun
