Prima Romance Novel 6x6 canvas inspired by Ann Everbloomcrafts

so I had these 6x6 set of three canvas's covered with one sheet of papers from the romance novel line and i just did not know what to do with them.  Well my friend Ann Everbloomcrafts from facebook did up these gorgeous tags using that line and let me tell you I stared at them forever and it hit me like a brick to try and use her tags as my inspiration.  So that is what i did with one of the three today.  I am happy with the way it turned out and it was so fun doing all the layering.  Now to stare at her tags for a bit longer so i can get the other two done lol... Thank you so much Ann for always sharing your beautiful creations and inpiring... Thank you for taking a peek and big Hugs....

And then for a little extra fun i thought i would do up a canvas Halloween sign for my wall to get festive.  I was gonna hang it on my door but then someone said that they would steal it from me, and i thought you know that might happen so on my wall it stays safe lol..  Hope you like  it.  thank you..

Dream Create Inspire Canvas Sign

Here is a 12x12 canvas i created for a friends scrappy room.  She wanted pink and purples on it.  I used alot of prima fairy belle from this line because i find gray and purple go so well together and it also had a beautiful soft pink paper in the line.  i used two of the journaling tags from the collection.  The flowers I used are from Wild orchid crafts and the Gray flower with the pearl center i bought form Leslie Owens zibbet shop.  I can't get enough of those sugar blossoms.  i used a gray pearl spray from my  local dollar store which i love on this project.  The pink Knob is from Michaels when they had bins at their store for shabby chic door pulls.  I also used a white Michaels frame from the dollar bin.  The big silver key in the bottom left is from Michaels dollar bins as well.  Can't get enough of key and frames for that price.  i used Tim Holtz title plates, muse tocken and a key that has dreams on it.  i did a lot of distress to shab this project up.  I painted the canvas a light gray, then I white washed it and gentley rubbed tattered rose distress ink around the canvas in spots.  I used white acyrilic paint to distress all the papere with tattered rose distress ink.  I used crackle medium on certain spot on the canvas, and then topped it with white paint, and then added tim holtz distress crackle in tattered rose on top of that.  I am please with the way it turned out and I hope you enjoy it.  Thank you for visiting and having a peek.  HUGS.

Altered book stack using Teresa Collins vintage findings

ok so here was my second challenge i gave to myself, yup to do a stacked book set.  I have wanted to do them for quite a while and I was inspired to give it a try by all the talented crafters out there doing them up as project.  They just look so gorgeous I had to try.  It was alot of work, but i am please with the way it came out for my first try.  It is a good way to learn how to do something and to realize easier ways if you ever want to do them again for a second time...I used regular hard cover books that I already had read instead of trying to make my own from cardboard.  It was so much easier.  I painted them in gesso first so the papers would adhere better to the book covers.  I wanted a vintage feel and i just purchased Vintage Findings papers by Teresa Collins, i love the colors and design of this paper.  It goes perfect in my living room on my expresso colored coffee table.  So i hope you enjoy my project and i thank you so much for dropping by. Hugs

Prima romance novel- Printers tray

Well i have been so inspired by so many talented crafters out their that are doing printers trays and configuration boxes that i really wanted to challenge myself to step out of my comfort zone and give this a try.  I mean i have had these config boxes and trays for over two yrs, it was high time to do her up lol.  I love Marion Smiths and primas new line of Romance Novel.  The colors and embellies, just everything about it.  Such a versitile line of papers.  So i watched videos and look through galleries of Mirand Edney and Mammitiffy for my guide on this challenge.  Here are some pics and i did take individual pics of each cubby.  Thank you so much for taking a peek and i hope you like it cause i feel another one coming on lol... hugs
