"Miss Lovely" canvas for Couture Creations

Hi there everyone, Adriana here today and I am sharing 
a special project I created for Couture Creations

Using the brand new release diecut collection from Couture Creations
"Everyday Essentials
and the only two dies I used for my Miss Lovely canvas is
the "AUTUMN LEAF"   C0724112
and flower die called  "DAISY FLOWER"  C0724131

Here is my canvas.... introducing ...."Miss Lovely"
Inspired by all the wonderful face/head projects which
are very popular at the moment.

She is so easy to create, I have a step by step tutorial
on how I created this canvas, using all the wonderful
papers, diecuts and embellishments from Couture Creations.

1. Using the Vintage Rose - Couture Creations unique papers, cut several
different squares and rectangles. Apply a medium gel to adhere these
papers to a canvas, leave to completely dry.

2. Apply white gesso over the entire canvas covered papers, leave to dry.

3. Cut an oval face shape and neck, as shown in photograph below.

4. Using different coloured inkpads and Couture Creations Sponge Dabbers 

colour in your face features, outlining eyes and mouth with a fine
tipped pen.

5. When you are happy with your face, adhere your face 
and neck on to the dry canvas. I slightly tilted her head to one side.

6. With Brown coloured card stock, cut some oval shaped pieces for the hair. I added
and layered a few off cuts on top of brown cardstock, 
to give a bit of texture to her hair.

Cut approx. 8 to 10 "AUTUMN LEAF" C0724112 die-cuts with the
Vintage Rose papers, also cut 2 "Daisy Flower" C0724131.
Adhere and layer with other small flowers on top of your ladies head.
Cut some butterflies from Vintage Rose papers, adhere and apply some
Glitzing Glitter to wings.

7. Add some Gemstones 
 to the neck - to create a necklace and 
around the flower head piece.

8. Stamp a sentiment on the bottom of the canvas.

9. Finish your canvas with some ink and stamps around the
edges of your canvas.

Miss Lovely - saying - Have a lovely day!!!

Thanks for looking, 'til next time.
