Canvas Wedding Keepsake using X-Press It and FabScraps!!!

Hi everyone!!! I hope everyone is well and getting creative? Today it's Tarrah here to share with you a canvas project that I have made as a keepsake for my sister and her husband from their wedding last July.

I have used the AMAZING X-Press It and FabScraps products for this project!!
What a great combination they make together too....

First I gathered the supplies I would be using..

X-Press It Canvas
X-Press It Triple Tac
X-Press It Clear Gel Glue
X-Press It 6mm DST
X-Press It Glue Marker Pen
FabScraps Shabby Chic Diamond 12 x 12 paper
FabScraps Timeless Travel Stamp 12 x 12 paper
FabScraps Chipboard pieces
FabScraps metal butterfly, key and filigree charms
FabScraps Wooden button
FabScraps Pearls and Rhinestones

Other supplies:
Paper Heart Doily
Rectangle Paper Doily

Choose the paint you will cover your X-Press It Canvas with..

Once paint is dry, choose your desired paper and grab your trusty X-Press It Triple Tac... 

Apply the Triple Tac quite liberally all over the top of the canvas and adhere your paper down smoothing out any air bubbles. I also applied some more Triple Tac to the top edges of the paper so that it helped it to stay down.

Choose a second paper and trim down to about 5' x 7' inch, grab your X-Press It 6mm Double Sided Tape and adhere this piece down on the left side of the canvas..

Take your FabScraps chippie piece and cover with paint in your desired colour...

Take a paper doily and so that it fits with your theme, recolour it with some paint of your choice..  

Take some FabScraps pearls and a butterfly metal charm and adhere the pearls to the centre of the butterfly with some X-Press It Clear Gel Glue.

Use some more X-Press It Clear Gel Glue to layer some more FabScraps embellishments like charms, wooden buttons and chipboard pieces.. 

Add some lace and paper doilies to your project and you have a perfect keepsake for a special couple...

So what did you think? I hope I have inspired you to get out all your FabScraps and X-Press It goodies and create something beautiful!!
