Relics & Artifacts Guest Ambassador!


Happy Friday!

I am especially excited to today's post, as I am finally able to share several projects I created for Relics & Artifacts as their Guest Ambassador.  

R&A pieces are perfect in so many ways.  They can be painted, glittered, drilled, and embellished, just to name a few.  

My main Guest Ambassador project is highlighted over on the R&A blog, so you'll have to hop on over there to check out the full project and see a full tutorial.   But, here's a small peek that will hopefully get you inspired.

For all of my projects, I used the Papillon set, complete with FOUR butterflies and a stand.  

After I created the main Guest project, I was having so much fun, I decided to make TWO other projects, using the other butterflies in the set.  I love it when inspiration strikes and keep creating.

Not only did I used one of the butterflies in the Papillion set, I also used the skull from the Ancient Soul set, and Helios II.  Don't all the R & A pieces work so beautifully together?

My third project uses the smaller butterfly from the Papillion set plus the wings and crown from the Ancient Soul set.

I love how with only two R & A sets, you can create so many projects.  I still have the 2nd smallest butterfly left, so more creating will be had.

I'd like to thank the entire Relics & Artifacts family for letting me share some project inspiration with you this month.  

Don't forget to hop on over to the blog and see the entire project and tutorial.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful weekend.

TBT with StencilGirl and Canvas Corp Brands!

Happy Thursday!

Today, I have a whopper of a post to share!  

This month, StencilGirl Products is collaborating with Canvas Corp Brands to show you unique ways to use StencilGirl stencils with a variety of Canvas Corp Brands surfaces and Tattered Angels Paint Kits!

Be sure to check out the details at the end of this post on how you can win a wonderful prize package worth over $50 in goodies from StencilGirl Products and Canvas Corp Brands!
As usual, when I got into the creative spirit, the projects kept coming so I have three to share with you today.  :)

For my first piece, I deconstructed one of the mini canvases, removing the canvas from the frame.  I used the frame to showcase a mini weaving.  

Creating texture on the wood frame was super easy with a stencil, modeling paste, and Tattered Angels sprays.

(I used the Maltese Mix stencil for all my projects on this post.)

Bits of Canvas Corp Brands burlap and patterned paper finish the edges of the frame perfectly.
 No project is complete without a little bling.

Using the same deconstruction technique, I removed the canvas from a smaller Canvas Corp Brands canvas, creating a vignette within the frame. 

 I used the removed canvas to create a backing for my mini vignette, again using the Maltese Mix stencil for texture.

 I really love the texture and neutral colors of the Canvas Corp Brands burlap.  It compliments my design style perfectly.
 My final project is a mini book, filled with stenciled pages, and paper product from Canvas Corp Brands.

I used lyrics from one of my favorite songs as journal inspiration.

The colors, the patterns, the stitching, and the words all make my heart happy!  ♥♥♥
