Family Love Vintage Style Collage

Greetings stampers! It's Amy blogging today, to share a vintage style collaged canvas. I have 7 different Viva Las VegaStamps! on this canvas, and I think they all work so well together.

  I started by prepping a 12x12 canvas board with...of all things, a sample of Benjamin Moore blue paint I picked up at the hardware store for $1. I then layered on vintage style papers, layering them on with Mod Podge. When this had dried, I added layers of mists in light browns, and spread them on with a brayer. A layer of white acrylic paint was the final of the canvas layers. 
The fourth layer on this canvas is the background stamping, where I used the checkerboard and cursive writing stamps randomly all over. I kept the harlequin diamond stamping just over the area where my photo cluster would be. 
 After layering on vintage papers and elements, I stamped the Bee Cards, Paintbrushes in Jar, and Pen Tips onto untextured cardstock, and fussy cut them out. Adding them throughout the clustered area of the collage, gave the perfect unique vintage touch.

 The Directional Wheel stamp added a perfect bit of movement on the bottom and top corners of my layered cluster. I love the look and how it blends seamlessly with the style of the piece.

I'm really excited with how this canvas turned out, and I hope you enjoyed seeing it too! I hope you have a creative rest of the week! <3
