Hi all!
Hope you are all enjoying this beautiful sunny day?

Painted the background with gesso and randomly sprinkled some embossing powder on it.
Tore up some pps from Prima, the Nature Garden collection.
The swirls are from Unique Hobby Products.
The frame is from Scrapdelight.
All the other embellies (the bird cage, letters and tile) are also from Prima.
Did some stitching on the white ridged cardboard, which is actually some wrapping paper from a roll of biscuits.

my favorite color

Hi all! 
Wanted to make a canvas in my fav colors for a long time, so finally here it is.
In my house you can find this color every where!
Had so much fun making this!

This project was made for Dusty Attic, using their gorgeous new chippies.
At first I gave the canvas a little coat of gesso.
Added all the fun stuff as letters, lace, buttons and cardboard.
Painted all this with another coat of gesso.
Sprayed it all with glimmermist.
Stamped the text and butterfly.
For the chippies I used embossing powder and  glued them on the canvas.
Added some little white flowers, tulle, some thread and some liquid pearls to finish it off. 
Really like the result and it matches my room perfectly!

And some details:

Have a great,sunny and scrappy day!!
