Vicki here to share my August inspiration with you! This month the Craft-Dee BowZ Design Team is working with yellow, lavender and green ribbons along with stencils on our projects.
I chose to make an altered canvas wall hanging using one of my favorite stencils...
"Hope, Believe, Dream"
I used lots of spray mists to give the background coat some shimmer. Next, I placed the stencil and used inks over the entire area. Before removing the stencil, I added glass bead gel over the flower area. It gives great texture and a unique appearance when it has dried. I removed the stencil, let the glass bead gel completely air dry and added some extra color to the flowers. To finish off the flowers, I used green Flower Soft at the top of each stem just below the flower base. This is another great product for adding texture to projects. The butterflies are die-cut from glitter paper and vellum. I used three die-cut words as the quote and added a few sequins for more texture. The yellow ruffled trim is hot glued around the perimeter of the canvas. The final embellishment is the lovely lavender bow created with my Craft-Dee BowZ Tool.
