Happy Birthday Michele!
Thank you for helping me shine!
There are several Crafty Divas who have created very special projects to wish Michele a Happy Birthday!
You can find the links to their blogs and projects here:
And there is a Giveaway to so be sure to check it out!
And now, here are a few details on creating this canvas:
I painted the canvas and let it dry. I created a decorative oval frame using Spellbinders dies - Floral Ovals and Ovals. I cut 2 of these out of cardstock and layered them onto the canvas then covered it all with Mod Podge and white tissue gift wrapping paper. After that dried, I dry brushed gesso over the frame.
Bricks Stencil from Want2Scrap and added some dimension with modeling paste. To soften the bricks I added another layer of Mod Podge and tissue paper. I found a beautifully printed dinner napkin and separated the three layers. I used the sheer top layer and applied it to the canvas with Mod Podge, overlapping the die cut frame and the bricks.
I printed some strip journaling on the computer, then inked the edges. Michele is the Queen of Bling, hence the crown...and we are celebrating her birthday so I gave her a candle. Of course...I had to enhance them with bling!
I added "Michele" to the canvas, using a photo I had taken at a convention. For some reason I always think of Michele in a beautiful white chiffon blouse I saw her wear, so I tried to re-create it. The buttons are actually Sleek Strips Pearls bling in white pearl.
Happy Birthday Michele.
I hope today is as special as you are.
