Idea-ology Canvas with Shari Carroll

Shari Carroll The Story

There is nothing better to me than a blank canvas on my desk… just waiting to get covered with goodness! I’ve played with some new Tim Holtz Idea-ology Pocket cards and the 12×12 French Industrial Paper Stash pad to get my 8×10 canvas board started.

After my paper was layed down and dry, I used some Wendy Vecchi Crackle paste with Tim’s Latticeworks stencil for texture.

From there I went about embellishing my canvas with Flashcards, Industrious Trim, Small Talk stickers, Fragments

The Mini Numerals gave me a clean shine and represent a countdown.  And to create balance, I’ve added an Adornments bird in the upper right area.  If you notice, I haven’t painted or distressed any of my embellishments… Sometimes I like them just the way they are!

I did shoot a full length video. Along the way I give tips as well as the sped up process.  Beware, it starts out with my initial failure… lol. You can watch it below or on our YouTube channel.
