Friends are like stars....

I made this canvas for my best friend's birthday, we've known each other since going to Uni together. She now lives nearly 100 miles away and I miss her loads, but we try to meet up at least 5 or 6 times a year. So the sentiment on the canvas really sums up our relationship. She's very creative too so I know she'll love this.


I've used the free star stamp we got in Craft Stamper last month and another free star stamp from Craft Stamper from last Christmas I think. There is also another hanging star stamp on here too, not sure who made that one. 


I've used some TH heart and wings dies and some chipboard stars too for some 3D interest!
I used TH Newsprint Letters, covered in acrylic paint.
I've also sneaked in some Beadazzles in little areas here and there.


What canvas wouldn't be complete without a bit of drippage?
This time its Tattered Angels Teal glimmer spray dripping down the canvas.

When you get your eye in, you can see I've used lots of stamps and gesso through stencils and distress ink through stencils too.
You know me I like lots of layers!
Looks like we might see some blue sky today instead of just thick white cloud.
Fingers crossed xx
