Shabby Chic and/or Vintage at MAWTT

Hello again! This is my second post for today and this time it's to share my DT project for 

where this week the very lovely Sue has picked the theme


I decided to alter a canvas and I really enjoyed putting this project together.

I started with a blank 8"x8" canvas and painted it using a mix of pink and green acrylic paints and then sponged over the top with white acrylic paint - you can only see that really on the sides :o)
I then die cut 9 x 2.5" square chipboard shapes and covered each of these with various shabby chic Design Papers from Prima - Nature's Garden and adhered them to the canvas - using Glossy Accents.
The edges have been distresses using a sponge and some white acrylic paint.

I won the fab Saturated Canary image (Fairy) recently at Cupcake Crafts and I love her wild hair :o)
Image coloured with PM's and FM's and lashings of Stickles added to her wings.

Sentiment - Cut using Cricut and then Stickles added

This also used:
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Memory Box - Madera Corner
Adhesive Pearls - Stash
Martha Stewart Frond Punch
Tiny Butterfly punch - Hobbycraft

I really did enjoy creating this project and I hope you can find some inspiration from it too :o)

Challenges I would like to enter:

Sweet Stamps - Vintage/Shabby Chic
Creative Mondays - Anything But a Card
Wild Orchid Challenge - Things with Wings

Thanks for your visit today.
