Good day out there in cyberland! Today is the first day of our November Do It Yourself blog hop. Each of us designers is showcasing a homemade project. You have to go check out MPC here.
I started with a 10 x 10 canvas that I purchased at Micheals...it is stretched over wood and made a mixed media canvas. I started by painting the edges in the green acrylic paint. Next, I chose designer papers from Primas 6 x 6 Fairy Flora. I mod podged all the paper on and added some paint in various colors to edges. Next, I chose some chipboard...key, lock device, flourish and the fancy butterfly. All of the embellishments were added with Tombow's mono glue (Tombow is the ONLY glue for me). After painting the flourish in cream, I stamped the itty bitty from Unity Handwritten on it. I stamped the lock device in brown and stamped Gorgeous grunge in cream on it and the key was done in cream and a stamp from SU The Open Sea stamped in burnt umber. Added some more stamping with acrylic paints (be sure to immediately clean your stamps off with warm water and a brush). Here are the Unity Sets I used in putting this together: Itty bittys-Here today/Here tomorrow, Passion changes everything, Embrace You, Bitty Backgrounds KOTM 6/14. I added a variety of flowers and touched them up with acrylic paints, flourish butterfly trails done in rhinestones, a piece of lace, a piece of burlap and an organza bow in cream that I heated to distress it. This was very fun for me. I wish I was good at videotaping...maybe someday.
