Spring Time In Fall

Good Day to all my Crafty Friends,

I hope you are having a nice weekend. This weekend went to my daughter's play, which she played one of the lead roles, she was fabulous! Last year she won Honorable mention as her character in Sleepy Hallow. This play is Zink - the myth, the legend, the zebra it was a sad one, she played the mother of a child who is diagnosed with Leukemia. Everyone did a fantastic job in the play and putting the set together. Kudos to them all! :D

Well today there is a New Challenge at One Stitch At A Time. Yep, 2 weeks goes by fast!

November's Prize Pack
This prize is perfect to use for making Christmas Cards!


For my project I chose Birdhouse Swirl, by Gingerloft. It's such a beautiful image full of spring time delight. I chose this image to go with a vision a had for a canvas. Yes, I tried my hand at another canvas. This time no spilling accidents. lol  My downstairs bathroom has a nice painting of a garden scene with a gazebo. I wanted to add some decor to it and thought this would be a nice piece to display in there as well.
And this is my first time I got to use my new Color Bloom sprays I got from Renea Bouquets with her beautiful butterflies and key charm. :D I also used a couple of other multimedia items - I applied Gesso to the corner metal piece and then sprayed the color bloom sprays, it turned out with the multi-colored look so pretty. I used TH Media Paste with a flower template, sprayed color bloom sprays around it after it dried and a little bit around the paper and sides of the canvas. :D

I am entering a multi-media challenge hosted by Frosted Designs. Once I saw the title I had to giggle cause that is me all the way - Get Messy with our Friday Challenge. I don't know about some of you but I am a messy one. Lol

Well here is my creation - (nervous) : /

*** For the Challenge theme - "Distress" - I distressed the edges purple G45 paper I glued down to the canvas and the little sentiment card from the Secret Garden Collection. I tore around the image and used TH Distress ink ; You can see a little bit of the stenciled flowers peeking out from above the image and over by the key, down to the corner by the little purple flower. 



***For my image I water-colored everything using TH Distress Markers. 
After I was done I went back over it the swirl frame with the Distress Marker - Peeled Paint
