I got this idea from the very talented Denise Black. (Check out her amazing blog!) I began with four 8" x 10" canvases and coated them in Mod Podge, then attached Veranda paper (Level 2 and Creative Basics) and covered in Mod Podge again to seal. Then I had fun embellishing using chipboard, pearls, Just Blooms, filigree charms, brads, ribbon, etc.
This was my inspiration...the bedding on their registry. (The canvases aren't quite as dark as the photo portrays, it it's pretty close to the inspiration colors.)
The chipboard letters are covered in paper from Key to my Heart (retired). The Cocoa cardstock swirls are cut from a Sizzix die-cut. (I don't recommend using the Sizzlets in a Cuttlebug...it didn't work too easily.)
To make the fun shape out of the green paper, I traced one of the "Miracles" die-cut papers onto the Veranda paper and cut it out.
