 Happy Happy Saturday My Dear Sweet Friends

Well today is the last day of February (as long as you are reading this after 12 am on Saturday morning Pacific time). Are you ready for March?  I know I am although we have had an incredibly nice winter, so far anyway.  It's been pretty mild but I know it hasn't been that way for a lot of other areas around the US.  Sure hope for those of you going through the snow storms have been able to dig yourselves out of the snow by now.

Today I am sharing a project I made as a DT member for the Fitztown Challenge Blog.  It is now my amazing job to make and share an altered project every other Saturday.  For this week I decided to create and altered 4" x 4" canvas.  I absolutely love this image called Fae 6 and wanted to create something that really showcased this image.  And these images are so much fun to use Copics on.  

For this project I used (2) 4" x " canvas.
I painted them with black acrylic paint.
I added lace to the front and back of the canvas to make the closure tie.
Added cardstock to the front and back of each canvas using Super Tacky Tape.
I attached the Fae 6 on top of the cardstock also using Super Tacky Tape.
If you look closely to the Fae image you might be able to tell I did some paper piecing of her on top of another layer of cardstock.  
I added the lace around the border and used glue dots in a few places to keep the lace in place.
I used black ribbon around the outside borders to hide the work underneath.

On the second canvas I also added cardstock.
I printed out my sentiment and added it on top of another layer of cardstock.
Wrapped some ric rac and faux pearls around the edges and added to the first cardstock.
I added the two hinges to hold them together on the left edge.
I left the left side empty until I can find the image of my mom and attach it on top.
So for now I will just tie the two pieces of lace together and still be able to enjoy the amazing Fitztown Fae image on the front.  You can find more information about Fae 6 on the challenge blog as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by - I always appreciate it.
