My Puzzled Heart Canvas Creative Embellishments


Welcome back, I would like to thank you for stopping by today and showing support. Today I would like to share a canvas I made. An altered brush, a puzzle to  my heart. I have been sitting on a few ideas that I haven’t been able to get to, I decided to jump on this one and get creating.

Nicolle has been making some awesome stencils and chipboards for the store, I love how they work so well with each other. I started out on the  background with some texture.

I added the Puzzle Heart Stencil and filling smaller pieces with the Puzzle Pieces stencils. I wanted to add more dimension to the canvas and picked the centre pieces out from the Puzzle Panel and made them look like they were falling down the canvas.

Using the brush as the focal point, I added some smaller puzzle pieces to add some texture before building up around the brush with bits and bobs.

I love all the wood pieces in the store, the Heart Piece etched with the puzzle worked perfect to pop on the centre.

I finished the canvas with some dry brushing over a black base.

Here is a short video to watch the creative flow of the project. Most projects I start with a general idea. I build it up as I create, I gather a number of supplies, not even knowing if I will use any, then I just created.


Thank you for watching and stopping by today, happy creating.
