A Summer's Day Canvas - Meg's Garden

Hello everyone, it's all ready Tuesday :)

Today I am sharing with you a canvas I created for my Meg's Garden DT assignment.

Creating canvases are very 
popular at the moment
and I have seen many 
turned around, reversed,
this enables you to create a shadow box effect.
I decided to give it a go creating one 
with the new papers from Meg's Garden, 
Ode to a Summer’s Day”.
Check out the paper collection HERE

I created this 3D Summer Bird House 
using the Tim Holtz - Artful Dwellings diecut.

I fuzzy cut the apples and leaves from the
Apple Blossom paper and with the 
inside part of this paper
I diecut the leaves.  
I added the rich burgundy colour 
of the velvet flowers also available 
from Meg’s Garden.

The scene inside the canvas is from the
Summer’s Day Collage sheet.
I now have created my very own 
Summer’s Day Garden.

I just love the cute little birdie and picket fence !
