Fitztown Saturday Inspiration Project

Happy Happy Saturday My Dear Sweet Friends

Hope all is going well for you!!  

Today I am sharing my Fitztown Saturday DT Inspiration project with you.


I have been wanting to use my washi tape on one of my projects and this was the perfect time.  I started with one of the 4"x4" canvas I found at Target quite a while ago in the $1.00 section.  


Yep, I gathered up quite a few of these and thought it would be a perfect fit for the Washi Tape and most of all this Fae 26 image from Fitztown.   

I colored Fae26 first with my Copics and the colors I used are posted at the bottom of this post.

I set it aside and did the prep work on my canvas.  I always use Gesso on my canvas.  I probably don't have to do that step but it's just something I like to do and to be honest, for no particular reason.  After the Gesso dried I painted the canvas black (both sides).  Next, I added a row of Washi tape to the outside edges of the canvas and wrapped it around to the back.  It didn't stick well so I used some double sided tape to the back of the washi tape and taped it on the back.  I added super tacky tape to the back of the colored image and attached it to the front of the canvas. 

I decided to add another small border of washi tape along the top and bottom of the canvas to frame it.  And once again I used super tacky tape to help seal the edges on the front and back of the canvas.  I added a 4"x4" of piece of cardstock to cover the back of the canvas.  I think it took longer to write this post than it actually took to make the canvas (not including the coloring of the image.

I hope you like this weeks Fitztown Inspirational DT project and will give this project a try.  If you do, I would absolutely love to see what you have created. 

 Thanks so much for stopping by and I always appreciate your sweet comments.  And I am really curious - do you use washi tape and if so, do you really like it.  And if you don't use it - do you think you might start??

Have a blessed weekend and see you soon!!

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…

It's Going To Be A Fabulous New Year

Hello My Lovelies
It seems I am always thrilled for the beginning of a new year. Time to put some things to rest and begin focusing on new dreams and goals.  I love pulling out my new 2018 planner and put it together and then filling up the pages, writing down my new dreams and goals as they pop into my brain.  Helps me stay more focused rather than feeling confused and lost. Plus there are some amazing new planners out there that make it fun and really pretty too.  My temporary move is behind me and hubby and I are feeling more settled.  My bronchitis and pneumonia are finally behind me and I couldn't be happier. 
I have decided to post my DT projects not only on my Hugs 4 The Heart Facebook group but coming back to begin posting here again as well. I hope you will come and visit me. I am also on Pinterest, Instagram and on Etsy.  I will be back tomorrow with all the links. My most exciting goal is get set up and doing lots of crafting videos too

Thanks for all your encouragement an…

Cupcake and a Celebration

Hello Lovely Ladies
I hope your weekend has been fabulous thus far.  It's been sunny here with a cool breeze.  It's been a welcome relief from all the cold and rainy days.   Today I am sharing a card I made in celebration of a one year anniversary for Leigh S-B Designs.  She created this cute cupcake image in celebration as well as for a challenge of sorts. 
I created my heart shaped card and used lots of Washi tape to create the background.  I all used white Cardstock borders to help break up the color.  I colored the cupcake and the number ONE with Copic's. 
Here's the card I created:




Leigh congratulations on your first year anniversary.  I hope you have many more.  Your images are wonderful and fun to color.

Thanks for stopping by.  It always makes me smile

With hugs and smiles
