My Family Canvas Jan 17, 2010

This is a project that I complete at Got Memories 3 Weekend! I am now officially addicted to GLIMMER MIST - it is now my "Elixir of Life!"  Most items on this canvas project were purchased from my FAVORITE Local Scrapbook store:  Scrap-a-Doodle-Doo, Ramsey, New Jersey
I used a combination of Olive Vine, Golden Terracotta, Gold and English Ivy Glimmer Mist and sprayed them on a Canvas that I first inked with Ranger inks and blended with water.  Then I started Layering! ( My 2nd favorite part - after Glimmer Mist!! LOL!)
In this corner is a photo frame ( with a picture of our Portuguese Water Dog Lily) that I placed a Tattered Angels Glimmer screen over the botton left corner - then coated the top of the frame with Mud Puddles ( a sandy paste)  I lifted the screen off - and when it all dried, I sprayed it all with Golden Terracotta Glimmer Mist - I added a touch of black RANGER INK paint dauber to some spots to make the detials 'POP" and a cute PRIMA flower in the upper right corner just set it off! - Don't ya think!  The Tim Holtz Key  says "Heart" and look at the Prima Swirl - just adds a little "bling!"
Below is true "scrapbooking"  The cardboard was something that a big pad of chipboard letters I purchased a few months ago was wrapped in  - I just LOVED the texture of it -and saved it for "just the right project" - I think it found a nice little home here in this corner - after a few spritz of Glimmer Mist  - of course!!
The beads hanging from the chipboard swirl ( a laser cut from my Carol at DC Designs/Chip off the Old Block ) was also sprayed and dipped in glimmer mist "residue" that was left on my splat mat for this cool combo -that was also "touched" with dabs of Ranger's Rock Candy Distress Paint, and a piece of hemp was tied to a few beads from a necklace that I broke a few years ago - and "saved" - because you just "never know" when you can do something with it -- I think I found out just what I was waiting for, as I incorporated lots of beads hanging from this canvas -- More DIMENSION!  I LOVE IT!

The word FAMILY and the swirl on top were also cut by DC Designs - and covered with paper from Scrap-a-Doodle-Doo.    I added a Tattered Angels LOVE Bingo Board and a Tile - both which were sprayed with the "Elixir of Life" of course!    I added some PRIMA flowers - LOVE THEM! and a few more swirls of bling - there is  Tim Holtz "Wonderful" coin hanging from the bottom by a TH fastener too.

I am going to add a few more small canvases and hang them from the bottom of this larger canvas, as soon as I get around to it!  hope you like it!
