Altered Canvas - "Want to Fly"


Hello dear sweet ladies

Happy Monday and hope you had a fabulous weekend!!  The weather was so gorgeous here with a little chill in the air.  It was a nice break from the heat wave. 

A friend of mind wanted an altered canvas for her desk at work. She loves butterflies almost as much as I do. One of her favorite cardstocks is from the Winchester Collection from the Angel Company and I used it to cover the front of both canvas pieces (before attaching them together). I inked the edges of each canvas to tone down the white edge with Versa Magic in "Eggplant."  I cut some cardstock into 3.75" x 3.75"and attached them to the insides of the canvas and then attached the canvas pieces together with the hinges. I cut two 3.5" x 3.5" squares and stamped the images in Versa Magic "Spanish Olive".

I created the bottom border on the canvas with the quote on it by using the edges only of the same set used on the opposite canvas. I used Wonder Tape to attach the ribbon and cardstock to the canvas. I stamped the butterfly from the "Want to Fly" stamp set in Spanish Olive, attached it to the canvas and added ribbon to continue the line across the entire canvas.

For the front I punched scallop circles using the Mega Scalloped Punch and Giga Scalloped Circle Punch . I stamped "Just Because"  in Versa Magic Eggplant), added a large eyelet, ribbon and attached to the front canvas. I added bling to the flower centers and I was done. All supplies are from The Angel Company and unfortunately they went out of business about a year ago.  

 It was so much fun making this altered canvas I think I may make a couple more in similar themes as gifts for a few more friends.

Now this is irony update:

  A little while ago I discovered Red Rubber Designs and I am so excited about this.  I was an independent consultant with The Angel Company for several years until they went out of business.  Red Rubber Designs is now carrying The Angel Company rubber stamps and there are so many wonderful images and beautiful cardstocks to create anything and everything your heart can imagine.  I hope you will check them out as well as their blog.

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

Orchis Last Enchanter - Morgan's Art World

Happy Monday Sweet Friends
My goodness it's the final day of October and this year is almost over.  Time passes way to quickly.
Today I am sharing my Design Team Card for the Classic Design Team Challenge that is now underway through November 27th.  Our sponsor this month is the talented artist Morgan Fitzsimmon owner of Morgan's Art World on Facebook.

The image I am using is called "Orchis Last Enchanter."  I think she's a gorgeous image and to be quite honest I was intimidated to color her.  I desperately wanted to do her justice.  It took several attempts at coloring her before I was pretty happy with the results.  She's really a great image to work with and she's actually one of my most favorite digi's.   I made some flowers with one of my flower die cuts.  I absolutely love these flowers and will be making many more in the future.
