Queen for a Day

I just can't stop playing with the Ruby Rock it Vintedge paper pack. Its amazing how far it is going! This time I decided to do an 8x8 canvas but it could easily become a scrapbook page. I have used one of my many images but it could be a photo of a member of your family if you wanted to.

 You will need -
* Canvas, mine is 8x8
* Vintedge Collection Pack ( this includes all the chipboard pieces needed too)
* Eco... Green Acrylic Paint Aged Silver
* Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad Tea Dye
* That Special Touch Mica Mask - crown
* Alterations Die Mini Paper Rosettes
* Alterations Die Typeset Alphabet
* Button Assortment Britannia
* Craftime Britannia Mini Crystals
* IndigoBlu Rubber Stamp Harlequin
* Exquisite Pigment Ink - Walnut
* Vintedge Paper Twine 15yds
* Silver giltter pen
* Silver watercolour pencil
* Koi Water Brush Small
* Larger alphabet die or template or stickers for the Queen word
* Die cutting machine

Here's how I did it -
1. Cut a piece of the ledger paper with the bunting along the top to fit your canvas leaving a thin border and glue down.
2. Using the wonderful silver paint, paint the sides of your canvas and paint in your paper so it blurs into the background. All you need to do is paint over the edges of the paper slightly so you don't get that hard edge. Go around the edge with the tea dye distress ink and a blender tool.
3. Lay the mask down onto the canvas in the bottom right hand corner at a slight angle and draw around it. Use a watercolour pencil to roughly colour the outline in and then use your water brush to paint it out.
4. In with the paper pack you get a big bag of wonderful chipboard pieces. Choose 3 bunting pieces you like, 3 of the photo corners, a couple of images for around the picture and the bird on the clock. One of the bunting pieces might need trimming, depending on your photo, place the photo on the canvas with the bunting pieces in position over 3 of the printed bunting pieces. Then if need be draw a line along the edge of the photo on the bunting then just trim off with scissors.
5. Glue down the bunting chipboard pieces and the photo. Add the 3 photo corners to the photo and a crown from the sticker sheet from the pack onto the child's head
6. Make 3 small rosettes with the Union Jack paper as per the instructions on the die. Cut pieces of the Vintedge paper twine and thread then through 3 of the buttons from the button pack. Tie knots and stick the buttons to the centre of the rosettes. Stick the rosette to the bottom left corner overlapping the photo in a slight pile. Poke the 2 chipboard pieces you chose into the edges of the rosette pile.
7. Glue the bird on the clock to the right hand corner and stick a few of the crystals to the crown.
8. Cut the letters for A, for, the, day from the typeset alphabet die from the dark blue paper. Cut out the word Queen from the red background ( I used some templates I had but any die or template you have is fine ) I then stamped over then with the Harliquin stamp and the walnut ink then went around the edge with my silver pen.
9. Stick down all your words and you are done. Hope you enjoyed making your canvas.
