Here is a canvas that I made while away at an AWESOME weekend Crop - Hosted by Scrap-a-Doodle-Doo of Ramsey, NJ. I designed the word Brothers on my new Gypsy and cut it out of grundge board with my Cricut! Just lovin' the Pinecone, Cinder, Brick and Gold Glimmer Mists that I combined for the beautiful colors! This is one of my FAVORITE pictures of my handsome sons Jake and Nick. Seeing their SMILES makes me SMILE! I hope this makes you SMILE too!
The Key is from a Tim Holtz collection - it says Memory
I cut the square felt black scroll embellishment and used it as a mask in the bottom left and top right corners of the canvas before adhering it to the opposite corners of the 8x10 photo.
I added Glimmer Misted a Grungeboard swirl and put some Prima black crystal flowers,
I created the top swirl with a Tim Holtz mask by spraying the canvas with Cinder Glimmer Mist first,
then masking it and spraying the Brick and Gold over it -- I wanted it blacker -so I then added black paint to the mask and "stamped" over the image to make it darker - than I added a few swirls of black rhinestones and pearls to bring more attention to it.
Another small Grungeboard accent in the top right corner - some more swirls of shiny rhinestones and pearls by Prima, a little chenielle burgundy and black fuzzy fiber and a clock embellishment from the jewelry section. The paper used is a 12 x 12 piece of "Vagabond" by Kaisercraft, and the small striped accent is the back of another piece of that paper glued to a white chipboard accent by Technique Tuesday.
Bottom right corner - another Tim Holtz Grundgeboard accent (hinge) and a Tim Holtz "Muse Token" that says "Forevermore" that I painted with a cranberry paint dauber.
Aren't MY BOYS Handsome? Did they make you SMILE!
I HOPE SO - and I hope you like it!
