A Reshare - Live a Creative Life Wall Hanging
For this piece I started out with a blank canvas from Walmart. I then cut strips from the Elemental paper packet and adhered them using mod podge. After allowing it to dry, I created a border with ribbon glued down using a hot glue gun (this part took quite a bit of time). Next I created my quote using a variety of CTMH fonts (no longer available) and colors in Photoshop, being sure to leave enough space for "creative life" chipboard letters (painted with Create a Shade Pearl Paint tinted with Pacifica re-inker). Before adhering the chipboard letters, I glued down my quote. I then attached my letters with Liquid Glass and had fun embellishing.
Butterflies were sprayed using our spray pen filled with a mixture of rubbing alcohol, Create a Shade Pearl Paint and Pacifica re-inker. I used our Foundy Pin Clips for the bodies.
Flowers were created with the Red: Designer Ribbon Collection and topped off with Milepost Shapes and Rhinestone Brads.
