Stamping on Canvas

It’s been awhile since I’ve sat down at my sewing machine. For some reason it feels therapeutic. The sound of a sewing machine always brings back memories of my grandmother. I would lay at her feet while she would create something beautiful.

My mother and I recently visited a shop that had a few handmade pillows scattered amongst other home decor. One of them had a stamped canvas background. It was so unique and beautiful, I had to try it myself.

I painted the canvas with Gesso first, then let it dry. Using black VersaFine ink, I went a little crazy with my stamps. When the stamps dried, I painted the canvas again with Martha Stewart Glitter Finish.

I also had a little fun making my own ruffled trim and vintage-style bow. What do you think? Do you like the look of stamped canvas?

xoxo, Christie
