Compose Your Life- New Paper Collection by Aga Baraniak

I attended Creativation 2018 this year, and while I was there I was able to see some brand new products from a number of companies. When I saw this new paper line from Canvas Corp Brands, I was immediately in love!

These watercolor images are the result of artist Aga Baraniak. Aga worked alongside Canvas Corp Brands to combine her artwork with Canvas Corp papers, and the results are stunning! These images alone are fabulous, and set on this heavy weight watercolor papers make them even more so!

 

I grabbed a few sheets of these at Creativation because I was dying to make some cards out of them! This is just the first of many cards, I am sure. Check out these gorgeous fussy-cut flowers!

I wanted to keep this card simple so the flowers can steal the show! I started by cutting my card base from Canvas Corp kraft and white cardstocks. Then, on my white panel, I splattered some light pink Glimmer Mist to create a fun but subtle background.

Next, I took some of my Canvas Corp Jute Cord and wrapped it around several times to create a circle. I also covered it in some Mixed Media Glue from iCraft so that it would stiffen and hold its shape after it was dry. I then placed it onto my white card base.

After my twine frame was adhered into place, I arranged my fussy-cut florals over it, using a combination of foam squares and some more Mixed Media Glue.

I then grabbed a Brutus Monroe Stamp Set, BIRTHDAY BEARS, stamped out the sentiment on black cardstock, and embossed it using some ALABASTER WHITE EMBOSSING POWDER.

I tucked the sentiment strip underneath the flowers and then adhered it down. For a last finishing touch, I added some tiny diamond sequins from Nuvo here and there on my background.

I love how simple and yet beautiful this little card turned out. These flowers definitely steal the show! Just fussy cutting some to add onto a card gives it the perfect watercolor look without having to be an expert on watercoloring!
