Entry For The Canvas Corp Brands April Challenge: Feathers

Hello there,
welcome to INSPIRE creative blog.

Today I wanted to share with you
a fun project I created using 
cardstock & Tattered Angels Mists
to create ombre' paper feathers,
for the Canvas Corp Brands April Challenge.

I chose 6-1/2 x 8 canvas triangle bunting
as the base for this project.

I first used my electronic cutting machine
to cut paper feather's in 3 slightly different sizes,
and  chose 3 shade levels of aqua heavy cardstock.

Once cut, I used 3 shades of 
Tattered Angels Mists 
to give a sort of ombre' look to each feather.

I gathered the feathers together, 
adding a floral element of a dangling Venice lace
to each flag, and centered a clay rose, 
also sprayed with glimmer mist.
I also added a small Venice lace trim 
to the top of each triangle.

On the center triangle, I added delicate colors
of pearl centered flowers, and lightly "printed" flowers,
as well as wood letter tiles and wood cutout elements.

I attached baker's twine in the shade of aqua
joining the 3 flags together to hang on the wall.

I hope you enjoy this project, 
and find yourself inspired to create one too!

Until next time, Crafty Blessings to you!

French Flea Market Shabby Inspired Canvas-Brief How To

Hi Everybody!
So happy to be back crafting and blogging,
after dealing with food poisoning last week.
Needless to say, it will be a very long time before I will eat taco's, home cooked or elsewhere.

Anyways, I wanted to share with you
a French Flea Market Shabby Inspired
5x5 Canvas Panel.

With minimal supplies,
here is a brief how to, so you can create one too.

I love these canvas panels, and Hobby Lobby actually 
sales them in packs of 5, in various sizes.

 I used my trusty fave, Mod Podge to adhere
the base patterned paper, and added
layers with paper doilies, and the addition of 
paper with a bird on a doily banner.

I used 11gauge silver wire, threaded through eyelets
that were screwed into the panel (and secured with a dollop of glue) and then twisted with
some baker's twine colored teal & white.

I stayed with using the same colors in flowers, that were on the patterned paper, hues of soft teal, pink & ivory.

I added pearlized sequins randomly on the patterned paper, 
used flat back pearls to the centers of each flower, and finished by gluing vintage cotton lace to the bottom, and added a coordinating sequin time & twine to finish the look.

Entire project took about hour or so, and is a little 
piece of cheer to add delight anywhere.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
I hope you will visit again soon,
until then.....
Crafty Blessings!
