Canvas Decor Piece with Tammy Tutterow

I wanted to create a canvas decor piece to highlight the fun title piece about holding hands from Glitz Design’s Love Games collection.  I took my design inspiration for a layout sketch by Allison Davis at


I covered my canvas with Love Games Floral for my base layer.  I used Claudine Hellmuth Studio Matte Multi Medium to adhere the paper to the canvas.  After the medium was dry, I sanded the edges of the paper on the canvas and brushed on Black Soot Distress Ink.


I cut two pieces of Love Games Polka (one 5″x7″ and one 5 1/4″x7 1/4″).  I adhered both pieces to chipboard, sanded the edges and applied ink.  I layered the two pieces and adhered them to the center of the canvas.  I bent a Tim Holtz Idea-ology Game Spinner in half to create clip to “hold” the Holding Hands Whatnot in place.


I added a few spritzes of Burnt Red Glimmer Mist to a white Bazzill Fabric Flower.


I moved layers of the flower and misted in between layers near the center of the flower.  The fabric wicked the color.  I love how it is mixed, with some areas still white and some different shades of red.


Above the flower I added two Whatnots and a clear Peek-a-Boo.  I sanded the edges of the Whatnots and inked them with the Black Soot ink.  I added a Glitzer sticker to the front of the Peek-a-Boo framing the number 1 design.  On the back of the Peek-a-Boo, I added red to the design with a Copic Marker and colored in the 1 with Mellow Yellow Glimmer Glaze.  I added two Tim Holtz Idea-ology Game Spinners as well.


In the upper right corner I added three 2″x2″ squares of Paper Layers.  Each piece was adhered to chipboard and inked.  I added a Glitzer sticker to each following the design in the original sketch.
