LOVE IS IN THE DETAILS
SCRAPBOOKING. CARDMAKING. PAPERCRAFTING

Choose Happiness

The following canvas I created the weekend before last, and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of making it.  It was one of those pieces that just flowed … oh how I wish that everything I created happened like that.

I used white gesso to cover the canvas, put on a couple of doilies, let it dry and then took the lid off my tumbled glass distress paint and gave it a uneven coat for my base color.  After that it was a whole lot of fun with texture paste.

That “Choose Happiness” and the stencil I used, you’ll see it hit the shopping page most likely tomorrow, but the white piece under the roses, it’s a piece of white cardstock cut with one of my new favorite dies – honeycomb remnant.  And while we are looking at this picture, is anyone curious about those little wooden hearts?

To add a bit of texture to this metal clock key I squished my embossing pad here and there and then sprinkled some gold tinsel embossing powder and then heated it on the key.

Before I slightly covered up this Frantage shabby pink embossing enamel … I thought I better snap a picture.  I was quite happy that I could heat it through the canvas (you heat this product from underneath) … as I wasn’t sure if the canvas would be too thick.  On the places I put this embossing enamel on the canvas, I gave it a good heavy sprinkling.  If you youtube this product you will find many different ways it can be used.

Doesn’t that fabulous group of hearts look amazing?  Embossed it up with some gold tinsel embossing powder and I cannot tell you how much I love this stuff.  And … I will tell you more about that amazing heart very soon.  (sorry, I got to this blog post pretty late and I am afraid I just don’t have the energy to list tonight)

I am sure you see a couple of stamps and stencils and chipboard pieces that might be sparking your curiosity … I apologize for my lack of time this evening … I will do my best to get them up for you tomorrow.  Have a good Wednesday … and remember …

Choose Happiness!

  • Absolutely gorgeous.  Your talent seems to have no boundaries.   If you haven’t sent the magazines yet, maybe you could stick that multiple heart piece in as well.  It would go really nicely in my wedding album.  ????????????????????
