I really enjoyed making this canvas!! I began with crumpled white tissue paper and glued it to the canvas (top and sides) with Golden fluid matte medium adding the medium under and over the tissue paper and let that dry. Next I painted it with Golden fluid acrylic black. After that was dry, white paint was added by scraping it on with a junk-mail plastic card and allowed to dry. Krylon gold paint pen was speckled onto the sides and along the bottom and right edge of the top using a blitzer. Glue the floral lace to the canvas wrapping it to the back. The die cut frame and collage image are both from PID. I cut the image and glued it to the back of the frame and then added it to the canvas. Butterfly charms and flowers were attached using Golden heavy gel medium.
This weeks challenge on 4x4 Friday is to use sprays. The background on here was done with Glimmer Mists... so image lots of shimmer as you look :-)) Stamped a flower from Inkadinkado first with Versamark and embossed with Ancient gold ep and then with Stazon ink teal and blazing red. Scripture was stamped with Versamark and embossed with detail white. Collage image girl is from Paper Imagery Designs. Bird is Maya Road microfelt and I added the eye with a Zig pen.

The first picture is a scan and the second a digital tipped to catch some of the glimmer. I used golden terracotta, sandy beach, and a little bit of iridescent gold glimmer mists... sprayed them on white cardstock, layed on plastic wrap being sure to have wrinkles in the plastic, let it dry completely and took off the plastic wrap. I gave the background wonderful texture and extra glitter was caught in the wrinkles. The ribbons are silk and started all white and I sprayed them with the same colors of glimmer mist. They don't have as much shimmer as the cardstock but you can see some irl. I stamped the quote with black ink, cut slits along the left, weaved in the ribbons, and sewed on the heart charms. I didn't add any extra adhesive to the hearts so they can swing back and forth. Corners are rounded and the whole atc edged with gold Krylon. All supplies available from Quietfire Design.

Over at the PID yahoo group we have weekly challenges and this week it is to use black and white. You can make anything you want, the only requirement is to use a PID image. This week I decided to make a tag. This sweet girl is Lila. Stamps used are a flower image (Hero Arts), crackle stamp (Paper Inspirations), and the word stamp (A Muse Artstamps).
