Mixed Media Fun!

I adore my team and look forward to finding fun, new projects to try with them every month! We meet the last Tuesday of the month at my house. A few weeks ago I saw an ad for the artists canvases at 50% off, and knew I had to find a project for us to do. Of course it had to be Stampin’ Up! theme, and I found an inspiration piece by Lana Horton, and decided to try my hand at this new process. Here is Lana’s original 

 

Isn’t it just gorgeous?? In addition to the canvas I also picked up some new acrylic paints.  
I pulled out lace ribbon, antique brads, stamps, stazon ink, and some designer series paper (DSP) as well as my butterfly thinlits dies. 

  
I went with the 8×10″ size canvas. 

   
I played around with light colors over the antique ivory base coat. 

Layering paint, lace, DSP, added butterflies, brads and pearls at the end. 

  
When I was all done, I applied Mod Podge (it acts as a sealer and will protect the project from light and help ensure the paper stays adhered in place). 

   
Amye and Tiffany were first up to create their canvases. 

   
This is Tiffany’s masterpiece!

 
Here is Amye with her creation!

   Here is Sharon with her canvas.   

 
Sheila went with the minimalist look, kind of beachy base. 

Brigid wanted to finish hers at home (she wanted to add pebbles and shells). I’ll share a photo once I see it. 

Just one of the things I love about this team is their willingness to experiment and try new things it’s a little “out-of-the-box ” but they all came out great don’t you agree?

They also made two birthday cards 

    
And we enjoyed cupcakes from Perreccas’s bakery in Schenectady to celebrate Sharon’s birthday. 

 
 I like to spoil my team with rewards… This month was a bit more than usual (I like to thank them and show them how grateful and appreciative I am- for being on my team). 

  
Wouldn’t you like to join my team? Just a few more days to enjoy the bonus rewards. I would love it if you became one of my peeps! 

Have a glorious day! Thank you for stopping by my blog today!
