Canvas Base

·                Cut four pieces each from C85 001 (polka dot side) and C85 008 (filigree side) to measure 5 x 3.5 inches.  Chalk the edges with black and distress
·                Arrange these in alternating blocks to cover your base canvas and adhere with Tombow.  Adhere a strip of ribbon to the right hand side with your glue gun.  Set aside so that all the glue dries completely

Shadow Box

·              Cut strips of C85 001 Peeled Roses (polka dot) to measure the outer frame of your shadow box.  Adhere with Tombow, and once dry, sand off any overlapping edges
·            Measure and cut C85 001 Peeled Roses (floral side) and C85 002 Rose Door (stripes) to fit in the four inners of  your shadow box.  Alternate these, ink with black and distress the edges and then adhere to the inner boxes with Tombow
·               Adhere your entire box to the upper section of your base canvas using Tombow glue.  Leave for at least overnight before you finish off your canvas


Finishing Touches

·               Fussy cut some flowers from C85 001 Peeled Roses, C85 007 Lattice Rose and C85 002 Rose Door; fussy cut one hinge from C85 008 Rose Wood
·                Coat your title chippie in some pink glitter glue and set aside to dry
·                Chalk around the outer edge of your canvas with black
·               Mat your photograph onto some black cardstock and adhere to the lower right hand side of your canvas, using foam tape
·                Apply some pink distress ink to a craft mat, mist with water and then swipe your Burlap Flower FL3 01 across it so that it becomes completely covered in pink.  Once dry, give a light swipe with black chalk
·           Arrange most of your flowers (burlap, paper & fussy cut) and metal trinket Oyster E7 069 around the left of your photograph and also a few on the top right hand corner.  Adhere using your glue gun
·                Arrange your fussy cut hinge, flowers and remaining flowers in and around just three of the boxes of your shadow box – use gauze as a base.  Adhere using your glue gun
·                Adhere a few randomly placed sequins and your black microbeads around your flower clusters
·                Apply droplets of mist over your main flower cluster
·                Adhere your title chippie on the edges of the far right block of your shadow box
