Stuck On You Sketches In the Garden Mixed-Media Canvas Layout

In the Garden
Using a 12x12 canvas
and a sketch by SuePup
You can view her blog at

The picture is of Dusty in 2009, we always have a big garden and we all work in it,
I so enjoy taking pictures of the children in the garden.
I have used a Prima butterfly pick, Prima flowers, Silhouette SD for the circle, the title, and iron gate.
Skeleton leaves, 7 Gypsies , DCWV, Graphic 45, MME papers used. Basic Grey card

Martha Stewart punches, Creative Imaginations rub-ons, tags, Tim Holtz stamps,
Tattered Angels butterfly and magnify glass.
I added Artlenz to the magnify glass.
The quote is so perfect
Many things grow in the garden that were never sown there.

Using a 12x12 primed canvas collect your supplies, and papers.
I always use Golden Paints

Apply using the Traci Bautista collage glue
I buy mine from Joann's

Apply stamps and inks

paints, drying with a heat gun

design to your liking

here was the finished canvas before papers were applied to make the layout

Ink your edges

decide how you would like to lay them
I placed the iron gate down after the first layer

Apply using adhesive and a hot glue gun for the flowers

Hello all,
Yep you know it....I just can't seem to post as much this time of year...with gardening, school projects and all the other goodies I have going on......which at this point is toooooo much!!! This week brings you the SOUS using one of Suepup's sketches....some Amazing sketches she has. be sure to check out her blog .  Every other week SOUS has a new sketch and a challenge so be sure to join us. Then every other week we have a tutorial on some amazing ideas and sure to check them out. I like to hang pictures up on the wall and thought I should do a 12x12 layout on a canvas, so I did....and since this week was the beginning of week 1 at Christy Tomlinson's She Art class. I thought well yeah perfect timing......a wonderful class a must!!!!
 Having all that inspiration running through I have put together a small tutorial to get you started on making 12x12 canvas layouts and then you can hang them or gift them. Fun and so!! You know I like texture and these are perfect for that. Not to mention painterly fun!!!!
So get those paints out and have a great time!!! Hope you have a super weekend!!! Cyber Hugs, Dawn
