Hi everyone I am sharing a canvas I have made for a friend's birthday . I saw one on Pintrest that used scraps and thought it was a really great idea . I am really happy with how it has turned out although  I am not sure if I'll leave it just like this or add to it . Its still brewing in my mind .but I would be happy with it just like this . 

So I started by gluing down some strips of paper, then I painted gesso  over the top of those strips . Next I glued on some  random negatives from my chipboard images and painted gesso over them as well  .

Next I sprayed some of my home made Mica mists over it all . I did one coat dried it then did another .Until I was happy .Than I painted gesso over it again using a stipling brush ,Untill I was happy with the effect . Then I rubbed it all over with Inka Gold rub in two colours .

Then I added some hand made flowers .I painted some chip board letters with gesso then coated them with dimensional magic and added some beads.

Was really happy with how the beads look like ice and I didn't want the title to over power the rest of the canvas . Hope my friend likes it . Until next time stay safe and keep creating .

Hi everyone here is a page I have completed . I saw a page on Pintrest and they had used a punch on the edges of the page and again on the photo edge . I liked the idea and tried it out for my selfusing an EK circles punch . It distresses the photo in a different way .

The are two types of flowers I have used on this page . There are apricot ones from petaloo and the white and gold ones are punches I bought . They are pretty cool you punch with one and then emboss with the other .They make super cute .

The gold feathers are a new die I purchased at TJ"s Srappin in Style at Woodridge .

And of course it wouldn't be my page if there wasn't a few of my charms thrown in for good measure . Thank you for looking .
