What I have been working on today!

Last night my youngest daughter Sarah turned up at craft club armed with lots of wallpaper samples not because she wants to decorate a room, she lives in a rented house so cant use wallpaper. She bought them because she wanted to do something on a canvas with them.

Sarah had got a rather nice Teal and Chocolate paper which is the colour theme to her lounge and true to form she left them with me to 'Do something' with them and here is what I did

I cut the paper to the size of the canvas ensuring one of the large flowers was to the side, tore and inked the edges and then glued the paper to the canvas using good old PVA glue. I then cut out the rest of the flowers from the paper, there was 5 more. As I layered them I used my scissors to run along the outside of the paper to curl the petals inward and lifted the petals in different places with 3D foam tape.
The whole thing was then finished off by gluing a Teal coloured Mother of Pearl Button in the centre of the flower
Easy, quick and will look lovely hung on the wall near her dining table.


  1. Beautiful colour combo and the canvas looks fab.
