The Everything ABC Blog Hop - F

Welcome to the Everything ABC Blog Hop!

For this hop we will be featuring the letter 'F'. This may be the name of a paper, a stamp set or an embellishment, whatever the artist has chosen as their "F" embellishment will be featured in their post. For this hop I've created a canvas wall hanging trio using the Family Love Stamp Set

If you've just come from Jenny's Blog then you are on the right track! This hop is a great big circle but if you happen to lose your way please visit Linda's Blog, Scrappy Therapy, for a complete list of hoppers.

I was inspired to make this wall hanging by CTMH Artwork from the 2013 Autumn/Winter Idea Book (tip: never throw out the Idea Books...they have sooo much beautiful artwork. You never know when you'll need to feel inspired).

Panel 1
I started out by using 3 of the My Creations Canvas Displays and one sheet of Skylark B&T paper. Each base piece was cut to 5 5/8" x 5 5/8" and inked with Brown Bag Ink.

For the first panel I stamped one of the images in the stamp set using Lagoon Ink. I accented the panel with a strip of Sweet Leaf Cardstock that I ran through my embossing machine with the new Quatrefoil Embossing Folder. I finished it off with some Silver Glitter Paper and Metal Flowers.
Panel 2
I kept the center panel very simple by using the reverse side of the B&T. I stamped another sentiment from the Family Love Stamp Set and layered onto more Silver Glitter Paper. I popped the sentiment up with some 3D Foam Tape for added dimension.

For symmetry I repeated the banner accents and embossing on the 3rd panel.
Panel 3
Instead of stamping another sentiment I opted to use some of the accents on the stamp set. I inked them in Sweet Leaf Ink and used my sponge dauber to add a touch of Brown Bag Ink to the center. I hand cut and layered them with 3D Foam Tape.  I finished this canvas with more Glitter paper and Metal Flowers!


I think this wall hanging will make a great addition to any family room or bedroom! This trio can also be hung vertically! If you want to hang it up I suggest hot gluing ribbon to the back or using some 3M adhesive.
