Gettin' Crafty

Where has the time gone? I always have a long list of the projects i want to tackle during our long Michigan winter...and...well...i haven't exactly made much of a dent in that list. I have been cooking a lot ( and eating a lot) and baking a lot (and eating a lot). Yeah... get the drift? I was thumbing through my idea folder and found these fun canvases. Of course i'm too resourceful (cheap) to buy these, so, let's say it together, "I Can Make This". Very nice! Repeat this any time you see something grossly over priced that you know you can re-create.

I started with three 12x12 canvases and an oval picture frame (and my trusty assistant, Rylee)

I painted several coats of paint, various colors, splattered, streaked and stamped all over them.

Cut out an oval of sheet music for the frame, laid a bird stencil over the top and spritzed the whole thing with 'Glimmer Mist'. Oh.My.Gosh. Have you used this stuff??? It's from 'Tattered Angels' and it is AMAZING. Once you have used it, you will find any excuse to break out their products and glimmer mist everything! (kind of like it)

Then i outlined the bird with a glossy gel pen, Mod Podged on the letters and...

Ta Da!

This empty space over the T.V. needed a little somethin'.

Now to tackle the rest of the i smell cookies???

How was your day?
