This week we're exploring a new product from Woodware the very versatile Craft Canvas. You can ink it, stamp on it, die cut it, sew it,stencil it, heat emboss it, Frantage it & use some embossing folders with it too- the list is endless. It's easy to cut with scissors or even a trimmer.
I have made a pouch which I intend to house my Kindle when it goes on it's hols but you could use it for your jewels, pencils, bits of ribbon etc. etc. I cut a piece to size & then inked all over with Sky & Jade inks. The recommended ink to use is Crafters by Colorbox but any pigment ink works well (dye inks tend to bleed). When the ink was dry I over stamped using Thyme & one of the new Stampendous stamps "PenPattern Light" which is a gorgeous Zentangle design & I've a feeling will be making many more outings on this blog!  I also prepared another piece of canvas which I used to die cut the flowers. To this piece I added some embellishment  to the pattern with the Stardust pen. After dusting off my sewing machine & stitching the pouch I added some gingham ribbon to the edges (dodgy stitching- I'm not the best at that kind of thing!!) & a button & loop to fasten. Finally I attached the flowers with some PVA glue & some little bows. The canvas won't be sculpted as you would paper flowers so to give them a little character I gave  them a goods scrunching up in my hand. Do check out  this great new product!!
