"Love & Happiness" Mixed Media Canvas

Hi Everyone!
I just wanted to share a Mixed Media Canvas I created for Lindy's Stamp Gang January Color Challenge and also it's my DT Project for Craftsupplies1. The sprays from Lindy's are amazing and I thought they added the right touch to my canvas. Also most of the goodies I have on here you can find at Craftsupplies1 Zibbet or Etsy shop (I will post the link to the shops at the end of this post).

                                                   So here it is...I hope you like it!

This is the colors we was to use for the challenge

Here are the close-ups of my canvas

Here are the links to the Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst sprays that I used:

I also used the complimenting Embossing Powders on the "Love & Happiness Words"

My Altered Birdcage

I finally got around to altering this birdcage I bought at Michael's last fall. It was a dark bronze color so I decided to experiment to see what I could do to it. So I first tried to emboss it with Distress Embossing powders and it didn't work out so well cause I couldn't get the embossing powders to go where I wanted them. So then I just used some Victorian Velvet Distress Paint and sprayed it with my Lindy's Mission Bells Brown.

The laces I used was from Lavish Laces and Craftsupplies1 and the Satin Ribbon on top was from The Piece by Piece. The flowers I got from Hobby Lobby they are actually the left overs from my wedding. 

Here are some more pictures:

I hope you like it!!! :))

Here is the video I have on the birdcage over on my YouTube Channel:

Altered Hot Air Balloons I made for a DT Project for Craftsupplies1

Hello everyone! It's been awhile since I last did a blog post but I wanted to share my Hot Balloons and I also did a tutorial, which will be posted at the end of this entry :) this first one I made a card to go with it that matched the papers on the balloon, by the way I used Prima Romantique one these..Love these papers!!! It was super fun to make and I originally followed Miranda MsLiberty25's tutorial on how to do it.

The trims and lace on this one is from Craftsupplies1 except for the seam binding.

Here is one of the balloon by itself

Here is a close up of the top of the balloon with the flowers and other embellishments.

Here is a close-up of the basket attached to the balloon with a handmade flower in it.

Ok so now on to the next one....I made this while I was doing the tutorial on how I made these balloons. I used Graphic 45 Secret Garden on this one and I think it also turned out super shabby and super cute!!
Love the colors too!!

This one I used a lot of laces and trims from my stash that coordinated well with these gorgeous papers.
Here is a close-up of the top of this one. I used a handmade flower I got from my bestie Marla Rizzo..she makes the best flowers.

Here is another view of the top of the balloon.

Here is a close-up of the basket that is attached to this one. It has another hand-made flower in it as well as some little flowers from Craftsupplies1.

Here is the outside view of the basket.

So Cute!!!

Do you want to learn how to make one of these??? 

It's super easy here is the link to the tutorial I did:

I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by :))
