Kool Kidz Canvas....

Hello fellow bloggers

Time sure does fly by fast.... I cannot imagine that its been almost 2 weeks since my last post... OK... the itchy scratchy throat and cough bug visited the last few days... and boy... was this old body sore... anyway... today I had to drag this old body out of a wonderful warm bed 'cause it was Michelle's day to visit and complete her daughters canvas.

Here are a few Pictures I managed to take with my ipad... sorry about the quality... hope they come up OK on your PC

I first layed down the Tim Holtz Idea-o-logy Mask "flourish"
and sprayed with Adirondack Color Washes in
Stream, Sunset Orange and Red Pepper.

I love the way the Sunset Orange and Stream becomes a wonderful green when they mix!

I couldn't get the full picture in.... so I havd to split the pic in two...
we cut out the letters on chipboard and colored it in with radiant pearls... I quite forgot that it wouldn't dry... so we removed it and I made my own pearl paint with
Derwvant Mattisse Iridescent Medium, normal penguin ink (yep the office ink) and it worked like a charm!

We cut out the flower and scroll leaf with Sizzix flourish Floral with leaves item # 656520
and also colored it with our home made iridescent paing. Overstamped on the flower with Hero Arts CL 513 Lauderdale Floral  in Brilliance Black ink - added a flower bling and some stickles to finish. 

the letters were overstamped in Brilliance black ink with a variety of background stamps to add some texture and interest.

To finish off we added some metal butterflies on a few of the letters and blinged up the words with stickles... nothing is complete without stickles...

Oh yes... the Cerise color paint we made with my daughters edible food powders 'cause I didnt have a cerise color to complement the background... and YES...It worked like a charm.... so don't limit yourself... there are even crafty finds... in your kitchen stash...LOL

have a simply wonderful week further...


shamela ;-)
