I'm back!!!!!

Hola :D

I am back from the Domincan Republic minus a bit of blood thanks to lots of mozzies feeding on me :( which resulted in a visit to the hospital!!!

We still had a good time though and my lovely hubby finally did the Padi diving course and thoroughly enjoyed himself even though it was hard going at times!!!

This week I have created a canvas for Bubbly Scrumptious that is to be given as a christening present.005

I have to say its just the most gorgeous baby pic so it was quite easy to create a piece of art around it :D

I painted the canvas with acrylic paint applied with a baby wipe - this is the first time I have tried painting like this and I love the effect. Its much softer than using a brush or a sponge and you can create nice swirly patterns in the paint.

When it was dry I inked the edges with frayed burlap distress ink.

I sanded the piece of die cut paper to soften the colour then ripped a couple of holes in to it. I curledthe edges back and inked with the distress ink, then stuck patches of scrap paper behind.

I highlighted the edges of the canvas and paperwith inka gold in old silver

I stuck it down overlapping
the edge of the canvas to create a 3d effect rather than just covering the front of the canvas.017

I used Fancy Pants stamps and coffee archival ink to create swirls on the corners making sure itwent over the patterend paper to create depth.

I painted Ranger rock candy cracklepaint to one corner and blasted with my heatgun to create some texture,then inked with the archival ink pad.

I then added lace and flowers and spritzed with cosmic shimmer mist in copper.

I added prima canvas letters and a few buttons along with a mix of flowers to finish off.


Hope you like it and also the recipient,

Hugs'n'snogs
