We are using new product from the 2013 Spring/Summer Idea Book in this hop. By the time you've hopped all the blogs, you will have seen all the new papers! Be sure to scroll down after my project so that you can see the rules and find your way to all the blogs.
I was over-the-top thrilled when I Close To My Heart introduced canvas displays in this Idea Book. They are the perfect size for a table top at 6"x6" or you can easily group them together to make a complete wall hanging. The price is only $4.95 for a blank canvas, so it's also an affordable gift!
Let me tell you about how I created this piece for you. I gathered my spray pen and filled it halfway with water and added three drops of hollyhock re-inker. When you are using your spray pen, a good rule of thumb is to add just a drop or two of re-inker, test it, and then add one drop more a time until you achieve the shade you'd like.
When you mist your canvas, it dries relatively quickly. I set mine aside while I made my Cricut cuts. I cut the tag, flowers, and leaves using the Claire paper packet and the Art Philosophy cartridge. I've used two stamp sets - February Stamp of the Month, Home Sweet Home, for the sentiment and Girls Rock for the flowers and leaves. What do you think of the pink glitter gems? I love them! The wooden flourish is from Mini Medley Wooden Collection. Another gem in the Idea Book is the Outdoor Denim Chevron Ribbon. All of these colors are gorgeous together!
Ok, here's how Blog Hop works. I am the last stop on the hop, so you are going to want to start at the beginning at Lynn's blog. At each blog, you are going to collect a word and then you will put the completed sentence in my comments. Sound like fun?
My word is TEAM.
Should you get lost along the way, here are the blogs you'll be hopping:
Brenda - you are here!!
Don't worry, my comments are hidden for the hop, so there can't be any cheating! When you comment with the sentence, you will be entered into the grand prize drawing for a Buzz and Bumble Paper Packet and the coordinating Honeycomb Stamp Set. Have fun hopping! Don't forget to check back with me on Monday to see if you are a winner!!
