Canvas piece

This piece was so special for me to make.  My friend Sheri lost her sweet husband Bill a short white ago and I wanted to pay tribute to them both with a nice piece she could display for herself.  It was my first mixed media piece that I did on my own so I hope I did the picture justice.   


The buckle piece is gorgeous metal from Prima.  I think I'm REALLY turning into a Prima girl.  I may have said that once before.  LOL!  And even some of the flowers on this piece are Prima too.  Wow look at me go hey?!  hee hee! 


Another Prima resin piece or - oooooo that could be a MF frame.  See what happens when you throw away the packaging?  Soon I'm going to get that clip-it thingy and just leave everything so I can tell you the truth instead of guessing.  LOL!!  See my bark hearts peeking around behind the sunflower?  Those are from Live and Love Crafts and as you all know, one of my FAVORITE STORES!  The sunflower and wheat piece is from Magnolia. 


A gorgeous Prima swirl starts this beautiful bouquet out and the big flower is another Prima piece.  I also had my Gesso out and Gesso'ed (is that a word? LOL) EVERYWHERE!  Oh and look!  The "Adventure" bulb is also from Prima.  



So I learned how to play with stencils and molding paste.  OH MA GAWD!  FUN!  Unfortunately you have to envision how much you need without hiding so much.  LOL!  This corner is "Mini Love Post" (TCW) and Tim Holtz "Burlap" is in the lower left corner.  


OK, this was cool.  I used a piece of honeycomb chipboard from Southern Ridge Trading Company and colored it using Inka Gold "Old Silver".  After I was done I added some Glossy Accents to make it look like honey.  Thanks for that Nikki!


This gorgeous piece is also from SRTC - FLO481- so painted it white and then covered it with Tim Holtz crackle paint.  You can see some touches of some gelato on it as well.  


Well I think I've explained most of what I did but if I missed anything feel free to write me.  My friend received this and was over the top with happiness.  Made my day too.  Hee!

And still am over the moon. It is the Picasso of our craft. I am going to find a shadow box to put it in so it doesn't get dirty. My girls just couldn't get over it!
Thank you so much again and again
