Venturing into the land of creating a canvas is freaking scary!!! This took me 4 days to complete and I doubted myself every step of the way. Creating an Art Journal page is one thing…..but a canvas…..that I was hoping to be able to hang up once I had it completed. YIKES!!! I used a bunch of supplies from Limor Webber’s Store, with my newest favorite supply being the Liquitex White Opaque Flakes Texture Gel……I’m really loving this stuff!! There’s a few layers to this piece and I love the texture I ended up with!!
Here’s the completed canvas…..
I wish the camera would pick up the texture better. I also inked the edges of the word “LOVE” in the bottom corner so it would stand out a bit more. I used allot of Prima flowers & embellishments, some Fab Scraps. I Am Roses flowers, other misc embellishments from my stash and from the grab boxes I ordered from Limor’s store a while ago, random strips of paper along with some Tim Holtz Tissue Paperand of course my trusted Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays in Cotton Candy Pink, Toto’s Tornado Black and Golden Doublooms.
Here’s a few close ups:
So, there it is. Going to sleep on it and decide in the morning if it’s going on a wall or not….lol.
Thanks so much for dropping in…..I very much appreciate it.
Hello to my blogging family! We’re out at the cabin this week……I love fall at the lake!! The colors are so beautiful. As usual I packed up some crafting supplies and decided to work on one of my Tim Holtz Composition Boxes I have. I had sooooo much fun putting this together……although, I think I had just as much fun looking for things to put into it! I even did a You Tube video on it……so I won’t put a pile of pics into this post. Here’s what I came up with!
Soooo…….what do you think??!! Check out my You Tube video on it to get more details and close ups of each of the boxes. It really was alot of fun to put together. Here’s a link to my You Tube on this baby……
So, as always I want to tell you how much I truly appreciate your visit to my blog. Thank you and please feel free to leave a comment! I’m off……chao for now!
Hey there my little blog family!! I’m experiencing a lesson in total frustration right now as this is the second time I’m typing and uploading this post. I had it all done……yup…..allll done and poof!!! It disappeared……ugh!!!! Soooo, here I go again. 🙂
A couple of weeks ago I saw a post on one of the blogs I follow called “florence and freddie” and Florence is so incredibly talented!! You need to check out her blog: florence and freddie She had these wonderful altered mouse traps on her blog and there’s a link to a group called Out of a Hat Creations you have to check out too…..a very talented group. I fell in love with their mouse trap creations and had to try one for myself! I even did a YouTube tutorial as I made it so you’d see how I put it together. I did however add the little cluster of flowers to the upper half after I was done videoing…..it just needed something more than just the key after I had it all done. This was my first actual tutorial YouTube and I realized as I watched the playback that I say ummm alot!!!
I pulled out my JUNE KIT from Scrapn’ With Flair . Leanne still has a couple of kits left so run on over and check it out and grab one before they’re gone!!…..it’s a fabulous kit with a lot of yummy goodness in it. Check this little cutie out!!
So?? What do you think?!! Did you catch my warped sense of humor…..my little parody on the nursery rhyme ‘Hickory, Dickory, Dock……the mouse ran up the clock’? Ya I know…..keep my day job…..lol. But I’ll bet you giggled……just sayin’. ;
Here’s a close up of those oh so cute little clocks and those rockin I Am Roses roses……oh! how I love those roses!!!
Here’s a link to the YouTube video I did on it…..
I also did up a couple of cards using the papers from this kit. I just love the grungy look of them!
Is that black lace not just to die for?! It’s included in the kit! Loving the lace paper too……it’s pop dotted off the front panel to add some depth to the card. The glittery swirl is from my stash as are the black bling accents in the corners. The little metal ‘Love’ embellishment is also from my stash and I came across it when I was going through some old packages of embellishments. It was screaming to be used!
Now how about this black lace?? It’s not included in the kit but I did purchase it from Leanne’s store……soooooooo love it!!. The bird sticker is included in the kit and the swirl bling is from my stash. I really like the pop of red on the bottom of the card and it really makes the lace stand out.
So, my friends, that’s it for this post! Thank you so much for popping in to take a peek…..I do truly appreciate all of you!! I love to hear your thougths…..don’t be shy. 😉
Until next time……
