Well, I’m officially exhausted from staying up late last night working on my Maya Road CHA Challenges. But as I mentioned in my previous post, I did get them done. Want to see???? Of course you do!
First up is this 8x10 canvas. It is SO NOT ME! But I’m sure there is a girly girl out there that would love this canvas. Maya products include: all flowers, buttons, dress form, letters, leafy pins and ribbon. There was a whole lotta distressing going on including some stamping and let’s face it…I’m addicted to crackle paint. Although I am very upset with Ranger Industries for their sometimes dried up bottles, I just can’t stay away. It’s like crack – like crack I tell you! The page in the background is from an old book – I think it was a literature book from the 1920’s. So here it is – It’s a wonderful life. Yes, I know I need to go home and add an apostrophe to this. Will do!
This is a close up of the flowers. Look at all that beautiful crackle!
The most unique thing here…and I don’t mean to toot my own horn – but I’m about to start a trend with incorporating the tins into projects that buttons and embellishments are sold in. This is the lid off of one of the tins…it just adds a little flair to the grouping, don’t you think? I’m pretty sure people will start using these after seeing my project.
The next project is again – a tin! This time I did something that again, has not yet been done. I converted the tin into a necklace! The bird and the bird cage are by Maya Road. I dabbed the cage in gold paint and I misted the bird in Maya brown and then used the Maya opalescent mist over it. Once it dried I used Maya Rub-ons to add a little design to the birdie. Clever, huh?
And the last project I made was this miniature canvas. I believe it’s 3”x3”. It’s really tiny! The tree, the owl, and the stamped sentiment are by Maya Road. I covered the tree top in patterned paper and then misted the tree trunk in brown. I then outlined both with a black pen. The crown is also by Maya Road – misted in gold.
Hope you enjoyed my projects!
On the visual arts front - well, I went to a friends wedding this weekend. I wasn't the official photographer but I did capture some nice little memories for them. Or as I like to refer to them - "stolen moments".
In this picture the groom is watching his bride walk towards the barn. Yes, they got married in a barn...but it was a really cute barn!
I do...forever and ever, I do. ::cried::
I hope you dance...
The happy couple...
Some gorgeous guests. HAHA...
Have a fantastic week...because I said so!!!
