"Dream Big" by Lauren Tomecek

Hello D-lish fans!
My name is Lauren and I'm so excited to be part of the new design team for the next six months.
I simply couldn't go past all the beautiful flowers in stock without grabbing a variety to include in a canvas display piece.

I whipped up a quick little tutorial as to how I created the canvas.

1/ Spray mist onto your craft mat then press the canvas onto the mat. Once dry, clear emboss a pattern over the top.
2/ Paint the whole canvas with gesso, then use a baby wipe to clean off the embossed areas.
3/ Apply texture paste through a stencil randomly over the canvas.

4/ Colour the edges with Gelatos. Apply water to create drips.
5/ Apply washi tape. I used a blue/white diagonal stripe from the past JAP kit.
6/ Adhere muslin over the washi, then chipboard over the muslin.

7/ Place your flowers, starting with the larger ones first then working towards the smaller ones at the edges and in the gaps.
8/ Add it little extra embellishments like clear glass cabochons, sequins and mini-flowers.
9/ Apply the finishing chipboard pieces, in this case a frame and a title from another past JAP kit.

Close up shot to show some of the fantastic variety of flowers available from D-lish Scraps: Green Tara Tutu Blooms, Fantasy Blooms, Bitty Blooms, Magnolias, Heather Springs, Spiral Stamens, Petite Resin Roses and Wild Roses.  
Thanks for looking!
