FDF: This is Paradise Canvas Layout with Bona

Happy Friday Everyone!
I'm excited to share my canvas layout I created for Fantastic Designer Friday. I love the new canvas sheets I had purchased and wanted to create a fun layout of my sister, cousin and their friends from Hawaii. I'm loving the new Echo Park Paradise Beach collection and thought how perfect this would go with the new Flat Fabio Hawaiian Island Set.

For the top of my layout, I wanted to add several clouds. I prepunched three different sizes of clouds with my favorite Fiskars Cloud Punches and placed them where I wanted the clouds to be. I added some repositional tape to the back to keep the clouds from shifting. I then sprayed Blue Hawaiian Blue and love how it turned out. Behind the photo, I created several banners and layered them on top of one of the coordinating die cuts from the collection. I then, die cut all the Hawaiian Islands using one my new favorite QuicKutz Hawaii die.

I fussy cut out the gorgeous "This Is Paradise" image from the design paper and placed it on the side of the photo. I loved how this image had palm trees, Hibiscus flowers and a wave. I added some I Am Roses petals and cut a half circle on the tips to create a Hibiscus flower. I sprayed each of the flowers with Plumeria Pink, Magical Mai Tai, Hibiscus Rose and added some two toned light blue cherry blossoms.

For the bottom the photo I mixed some Snow-Tex with some Magicals in Clam Bake Beige to give the look of the sand from the Hawaiian beach. To complete my layout I added an adorable Van die cut using my QuicKutz Van die. I really enjoyed creating this layout and look forward to sharing with you another Fantastic Designer Friday.
