A boys flowers allowed! with Jan Mackenzie.

Hello everyone and welcome to my canvas with boy rules!

This is a photo of my son at graduation and I was given strict instructions that I was not allowed to add flowers as this is his to add to our family wall.
As my wall is quite vintage with cream colourings I have coloured the canvas with first a coat of cream acrylic paint and then added a dabber in a lighter cream colour.
Cherish canvas

The MM chipboard scrolls have been painted with white and  gold and then I have added embossing powder to the top one and oven baked it for 2 mins to get that weathered look.

I have added some coordinating hand made papers from the Memory Maze range.

I have then added some embellishments just to bring out the flourish and made it the star!

Thank you for joining me and happy scrapping!

  1. Love the oven baking technique Jan. What temperature did you use?

  2. I love the bling on the creation. I still think you could have added one or two flowers ;)
