Canvas Corp Brands waxed Hobo bag

Hello everyone

I have a cute waxed  hobo bag to share with you today!
First you will need to get a drawstring canvas bag and some Tattered Angels sprays. I used Plainjane baseboard cardboard  and Plain Jane baseboard leaf and pariafin and bees wax! I also added an adorable canvas flower with a little bling in the center.  I wanted mine to look like an old leather bag that has been well loved!

First you will need to spray the bag with the Baseboard Cardboard , I sprayed my handles with leaf.  If you choose to do the handles differently you will need to be careful they will bleed onto the rest of the fabric unless you cover them compleatly with a Baggie.  I would know!  I accidentally let my Handle touch the brown part of my canvas sigh ... So to make it look  like I ment to do this I let them drop down and I twisted the bag up with them ... Yes! I like this I said... It was not ruined sweet! Now take the brick of parifin wax and 1/4 cup of bees wax and melt in a double broiler... While the wax is melting, make sure you cover your work area with paper. Okay, onto the next step after it is compleatly dry. Once the wax is all melted and mixed up, you take your paint brush and dip into the hot wax carefully not to burn yourself and paint the whole bag with the wax.  Let the bag dry. The wax will change color when dry then you can take your blow dryer in high and melt in the wax, the bag will absorb the wax , let it dry if you see a spot you missed melt it with the blow dryer!

Finnabair Cosy challenge

Hello Everybody, 
 I  would like to share a FUN challenge with you! 

                                                              My Insperation for cosy....

was inspired by waking up to that cosy smell of coffee.. 

I started with a blank canvas... Tattered Angels sprays and paints (glimmer mist - pumpkin spice, kiwi, golden orange, glam-espresso bean ) a rooster napkin, modeling paste, mod podge, crushed eggshells, Canvas Corp coffee defined on Kraft sampler paper and some jute rope.
I used the Tattered Angels Pumkin Spice Spray and sprayed the canvas.  I then used mod podge and painted it down where I wanted my napkin to be. I carefully laid the napkin on top of the Mod Podge and tapped it down. Next I took some modeling paste and made random smears. I then poured  some Mod Podge onto my canvas randomly. This next step I took some crushed eggshells and smashed them into the glue. After it was dry I took the tattered Angels mists and layered them to get the look I wanted. I then poured some espresso bean Glam onto a plate and took a coffee cup and dipped the bottom edge of the coffee cup into the paint and randomly sat the coffee cup onto my canvas .  I used the defined coffee sampler page and cut out the COFFEE letters and grunged them up on the edges. Next I took a phrase and cut it out and grunged the edges using my succory to give it a rustic look. I then dabbed the edges into espresso bean glam.  I placed them onto the canvas where I wanted them to be. Adding a little jute rope for some more depth.
