Wednesday night I decided it was time to make another canvas. The weather around here had been spring-like and blustery and I wanted to try to re-create that feeling. I picked up some fabulous papers from Moxxie's Child's Play paper line and a couple of my new Spellbinders dies and I was ready to go!
...made out of baker's twine which leads down to this little charmer. The girls are from Technique Tuesday and I love them! I don't know if you can see it, but I pierced the paper above and below her hand, threading the twine through it so that it looks like she is actually holding the kite string!
The Best Glue Ever from ScraPerfect. Next up is a daisy made with modeling paste & a stencil, then colored with Distress Inks from Ranger. The micron pen came out again to add some detail!
No way I could talk about a "blustery day" and not somehow bring in Winnie the Pooh! This **perfect** quote is a rub on from Fancy Pants. (Note: The 2 stamped girls and the quote - all about my girlfriend and I.)
And finally, the "scrabble" letter tiles at the bottom of the canvas. They are cut, embossed and stenciled using my new favorite die set from Spellbinders - Mix'd Media Playtime. The dies were designed by Donna Salazaar and are fabulous! I think I need an entire alphabet made in this design!
So that's it. I didn't have a specific design when I started. I just had an idea what papers and elements I wanted to incorporate and then I just dove in. I like it so much I think I am going to make a companion canvas! (oooh...did you hear the gears in my mind just start turning?)
Thanks for stopping by! Susie
