A Summer's Day Garden on reversed canvas

Hello Bloggers

Adriana explains her fabulous reversed canvas/shadowbox project:

“Summer’s Day Garden -  Reversed Canvas”
by Adriana Bolzon

'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, “Ode to a Summer’s Day”.'

'I created the 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 from Meg’s Garden.
The scene inside the canvas is from the Summer’s Day Collage sheet.

I now have create my very own Summer’s Day Garden.

What a beautiful Summer's Garden - so much work & a fabulous result - well done Adriana.
I love all the embellishing you have done;  the leaves trailing up the side of the canvas & the way you have made them 3D; the flower bouquets, the way you have fuzzy cut the paper to create the window & the corner scrap flourishes are a beautiful final touch.  Your choice of chippies is perfect.

Bye for now
