I won a Guest Designer Spot for Helmar!

Happy Sunday Everyone!!

I want to THANK everyone who voted for my entry in the HELMAR Guest Designer contest last week!

I am so HAPPY and EXCITED that I WON!

There were many beautiful entries, by lots of talented artists, and I am HONORED to have received the most votes.
(If yours was one of them - I sincerely THANK YOU!)

I LOVE working with Helmar adhesives - and can't wait to be a Guest Designer for them!  ( So watch for more info to follow!)

If you didn't see it yet - here is the project that I submitted:

This is a REVERSE Canvas project.   I took an 8x11" canvas and turned it over, creating a frame.

I covered the wood with Gesso -quite thickly in spots. I even used a pc of chipboard as a stencil to fill in and create the frame's texture.  It was colored with Glimmer Mist, and Glimmer Glam, along with some Black Soot Ranger Distress Ink.  The 2 flowers are white cardstock that I also colored with Glimmer Mist and glued them together with Helmar Scrap Dots.   The letters for HOME are sprayed with Glimmer mist - and edge with Oil Slick Black Glimmer Glaze.  I stitched them onto the canvas, after gluing them first.

Here is a close up of some the detail - along with the handmade paper flower.

I hope you like this project - STAY TUNED - I "feel" a REVERSE CANVAS CLASS is going to be coming to  Scrap-a-Doodle Doo early next year - THINK SNOW, SPARKLE and FUN!!

Be sure to add yourself to the EMAIL option on my Blog, to be sure you don't miss out on any class info or opportunities!!
THANKS for stopping by!
