12 X 12 Canvas #2 For You Mom

I made this one today for my mother. This is a picture of her around 1943. Again I'm using Graphic 45 paper, flowers sprayed with Coffee Glimmer mist, gears by Tim Holtz and Sticklers. Edges with distress with Vintage Photo ink. I hope you like this one.

Graphic 45 Altered Canvas

My first 12 x 12 Altered Canvas using Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante collection. The canvas was first painted black/brown using acrylic paint. When dried I sprayed it Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (Gold) in the corners where the paper was torn away. You can't really see it in the picture and with the embellishments. I could have left that out with no change in the look. From there I just went ahead and glued the papers and embellishments down using Gel Medium. I had layed out the canvas in different ways before settling with this one. Once I got started gluing down the first piece for the all just came together. I used the T!m Holtz gear die to cut some gears and distressed them with Vintage Photo and Soot Black. Flowers are from stash and I Glimmer Misted those a little too and added a little Stickles here and there. The pearls are from Stampin'Up and the gears from T!m Holtz. Voila!!

Journal Cover

A friend asked me to make a journal cover for her. She picked out the picture and papers she wanted and I did the rest plus added the embellishments and this is what we came up with. I love the way it turned feminine.

The Mad Hatter or did the Hat go Mad?

This was fun to do using a Top Hat template in black cardstock. Made the mad hatter into a tag and tucked him inside. Embellished the hat with various papers cut outs. This is for another swap.
