Here is another canvas that I created this weekend. It is 8"x10" canvas and will be a gift for my niece's birthday in June.  Shhhh - it's a surprise!! I Glimmer Misted the canvas with Lime Twist, Patina, Frozen Lake and Golden Terracotta.  The photo of her is a 4x6 in a Technique Tuesday frame that I Glimmer Misted with Lime Twist, Frozen Lake, Patina and Golden Terracotta.  I added a little Ranger Rock Candy Distress Paint on many places all over the canvas to give it a wet shiny look too.
The seashells are from Topsail Island Beach, NC where we vacationed this year and where the picture was taken.

Aren't these AWESOME new Prima Flowers!! I just HAD TO HAVE THEM and use them when I saw them.  They match perfectly don't they! 
The swirl is chipboard coated with Mud Puddles and sprayed with Golden Terracotta Glimmer Mist. YUMMY!
The photo looks a little dark here - but is was take through the screen of a beach tent, and has a very soft look.  See the cool tiny glass beads on the top that I sprinkled on the Rock Candy!
I LOVE how this corner turned out - It is a styrofoam letter "D" that I painted with
Acrylic Paint - (Lettuce) and sprayed with Glimmer Mist - Patina and Frozen Lake.
I added some MudPuddles broken seashells, and blobs of Rock Candy Ranger Crackle Paint.
I took a Tim Holtz Key that says DREAMS, put a pearl paint daubber to it -wiped it off and then lightly painted it with a teal SMOOCH paint - I think it turned out pretty neat - don't you??  I think I got the fish net from Jen Star many years ago when I took a class from her at a LSS that is no longer in business (thanks Jen!) and have held it in my "stash" since then! I am SO GLAD I did - as I think it works very nicely - don't you?! Oh - this side has a torn piece of "By the Sea" paper by Creative Imaginations that has been sprayed by Glimmer Mist ( of course!) and edges with teal SMOOCH!
What do you think?  Is it your favorite corner too?
More "SCRAP" ing here - the starfish was actually used at our cousin's wedding ( that my niece was in) with our name and table number attached and placed in a box of sand for seating. I saved it for a few years and I think I found the perfect project/place for it!   This is a picture of my niece and her Sister, Mother & Father, walking along the beach. I just LOVE pictures of people walking away from me -- really I do!  I don't know why - maybe it is because they are not posing - or giving a forced smile and I can just capture the "moment" without their knowledge. Is it just me? Well - we all had a great time together on this relaxing vacation - and the Tim Holtz charm received the same pearl paint and SMOOCH treatment and I hope helps her to remember that time and that she is able to "SIMPLIFY" some of her life as the charm says.

I hope you enjoyed view this as much as I enjoyed making it!
Thanks for looking!
