Altered Canvas! (DT project for ThePiecebyPiece)

Its that time again!  Another Design Team Project that I've created! It's my first altered canvas!the size is 11x17. I really wanted to showcase the romance of this photo from a friend of mine!  It tells such a beautiful love story!  I used Lots of Prima Almanac paper and coordinating flowers along with exquisite laces from Beverly's store!  I also used  Prima Vintage Trinkets, Resin Ppieces and Wheat Sprays--all from Beverly's store as well!  I used lots of texture with Prima masks and modeling paste around the canvas edges and throughout the front of the canvas.  Added shimmer with Lindys Stamp Gang sprays. And did my usual distressing of all the paper edges and added stitching with my sewing machine! I wanted this project to look a bit grungy, yet stay soft and romantically shabby chic! I used my texture paints (black,off-white, and peach) to add the texture throughout the project. I started with the black texture paint in the lower left corner and subtly blended  in the off-white texture paint and ended with the peach texture into the upper right corner of the canvas!  I added the texture to all the embellishments and flowers as well!  I used the new Tim Holtz buckles (love those!) and some Prima/Tim Holtz keys to a large vintage looking cabinet handle at the bottom of this canvas. I printed the photo on to a canvas type fabric from my own printer and frayed the edges of the fabric. I topped it all off with a Prima Chipboard piece from the Engraver line (from Beverly's store) in the upper left corner that says "memories with you". Simply stated. Simply beautiful. Simply a love story for all time. Here's the pics!
