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.
