CRAFTING MONDAY

Last Monday was spent crafting with 3 friends, heaven. We decided to make a picture using a canvas and corrugated cardboard each one was so different as we put our own mark on the project.I painted my canvas using Claudine's Trad Tan and then stamped in Olive Archival using Dyan's "Around the Edge" stamp from her Dylusions range. I edged the canvas using a copper Krylon pen, put a piece of copper wire through 2 copper eyelets to hang the finished canvas although I don't think you can see this in my photo. I tore around the corrugated card to give a grungy feel and then decorated using grunge paper butterflies and bird a few of Tims idea-ology here and there . The trees were cut from copper mounted on card using Tim's Sizzix Die. The fence is a Sizzix Die painted in Claudine's Sable Brown and using the Vaseline resist technique to give a peeled paint effect. My 3 houses I cut from a Crafty Individuals template and covered in the latest (can't remember what it is called) Paper Artsy papers. I am now going to give this to a friend I hope she likes it.
