Happy to be back and sharing my latest project with you all!
An altered canvas inspired by a Quote? A poem? A prayer?
All of the above! All I can say is that it's beautiful and came from an author name Susie Larson. As I recently hit one rough spot in life after another, these words inspired me AND reminded me I AM LOVED.
I started off this project with choosing a paper from the Black Rainbow stack from Michael's and it's an 8x10 canvas. It has all this pretty design and was in my craft stash.
I first flipped my paper over, traced around my canvas and cut it out using my paper trimmer. This will make the decopodging easier.
I put down a coat of white gesso on the canvas and let it dry.
Then I painted the canvas with a coat of white acrylic paint and also let it dry.
After giving them enough time to dry, I adhere my paper to my canvas and again let it dry again with all the decopodging.
I printed out the quote I wanted to use then cut it to bits and glued it down to my canvas. I did this by hand for the most part, clearly. Hehe! #HandmadeNotHallmark am I right?
It was then time to have the Snap machine get to Work!
I die cut some sparkles, a moon and I actually fussy cut out a heart from some other paper collection... from the stash of course.
So that is what your girl Did! I used some holographic paper scraps, and even recycled some packaging paper by cutting some of the stars out of it. It was so pretty and hate to waste. Oh, I also had to add some beaded hearts and some sequins!
And this was the final product! I hope you LIKE and get INSPIRED! Most of all I hope you remember IF you are going through a rough time, these beautiful words can remind you too that YOU ARE LOVED! Please come back to visit this blog, be inspired by our other members design templates!
