Love Canvas/ Oriental Trading Company product review

Love Canvas
#oriental trading company

Hey crafty friends. 
I'm here today to share with you a canvas I made using the burlap covered canvas from Oriental trading Company

I started by brushing some gesso across the canvas. Not the whole canvas just enough to give it some texture.
I then added some color by using bubble wrap and some paint. 
Using a stencil, I painted the word Love. 
Some of them I used in their original color. Using brads to hold them together.
The other 2, I used Ken Oliver Mineral Burst to add some color. 

I attached them to the canvas using my hot glue gun.
I also added a few touches with ribbon. Using my crochet needle, I thread some brown ribbon thru the canvas.
And to top it off with paper butterflies I recieved from a friend a while back. 

It did take me a minute to get use to using a different kind of canvas. I'm use to a regular canvas that is not see thru. But after playing around I found that it has it's positives. I was able to add ribbon differently than usual. I could also attach things to the canvas because of the holes in the burlap. It opened me up to new ideas. Which I love.
The other thing I noticed about the flower petals is if you add something for color and use a heat tool, dont get too close as the heat will melt them. Crafty tip.

Disclosure: Oriental Trading has sent me products to review but all opinions are my own.
