This was a labour of love! Everything but the kitchen sink is on here! Layers of all kinds of goodness! Paints, crackle paint, Glimmer Mists, stencils, rub-ons, tissue tape, TH film strip ribbon, paper, napkins.
I LOVE paper piecing and fussy cutting. Absolutely one of my favourite techniques. I would rather paper piece than colour with Copics or other markers.
Here are some more pics:
This butterfly is from patterned paper (can't recall what one!). I added a small black safety pin for the body.
The birds are stamps from Dylusions, Dyan Reaveley set called, "How Does Your Garden Grow". Love this set! I stamped on coloured paper and added some Faber-Castell Gelatos. The brown area with teal swirl is a paper napkin. The paisley flourish is a rub-on.
These flowers are also part of the stamp set. I stamped them on coloured paper, added some Distress Rock Candy Crackle Paint and black brads or bling. The flower stamps have the book print design on them.
This lovely lady is called "Party Love", by Suzi Blu, Unity Stamps. I believe she has been discontinued. What a shame! I adore her! I have several other Suzi Blu "Big Girl" stamps. They are my favourite paper piecing stamps.
Kim the lovely proprietor at The Cutting Garden, does have this stamp set.
Since I bought this stamp set, I have used them quite a bit; canvas, cards. It is my fav "at the moment" go-to-stamp set for whimsey canvas or card projects. Great for paper piecing!
I made this canvas for Mike's aunt Janette, so I can visit it whenever I want! She's just around the corner!
