"Graphic45 Contest"

  Hello all, First I would like to say how sorry I am for the horrific terror attack that struck Boston, my prayers go out to the family and friends of the victims.  May God give you strength in your time of grief.

On another note, have you all heard about the contest that is going on at Graphic45?  If not this is what you have to do!

unique papercrafting graphic 45


 Now for my take on the challenge...

This is an 8x10 canvas which I altered.  Everything I used are from the Secret Garden Collection...papers, chipboard pieces, accent pieces and some of the flowers are cut using this collection.  The first step I took was to paint the canvas all around the sides with a peach color acrylic paint.  After it dried I stamped the sides using a swirl stamp from Inkadinkado.  The ink is Walnut Stain from Tim Holtz.

 I then glued on top of the canvas a piece of paper for my background "Secret Garden".  On top of that one I used the paper called "April Showers".  I let it dry completely and then I covered it with Mod Podge all around the canvas.  The next step, I cut a strip of the paper "Secret Garden" to make my border, the border punch I used is from Martha Stewart.  I covered my tag with the paper "Seed Fairy" and inked the edges.  The quote card is from the paper "Springtime".  Since the quote didn't really have anything to do with the photo, I chose to place a sticker on the top and a chipboard piece covering the quote.

These two flowers you see on the top photo were cut using the Silhouette Cameo as well as the small white and blue rose at the bottom left corner.  All my flowers and leaves were sprayed with silver glitter mist from Tattered Angels, it gives it a nice glimmer shine to them. 

I punched out the yellow flower from the paper "Leafy Treetops" using the Retro Flower punch from EK Success.  All other flowers and gems are from Prima.  My chipboard title from Dusty Attic was inked and embossed which I think turned out nicely.  The swirls were cut out using the BigShot (sorry...not sure the name of the dies).

Well I sure hope you enjoyed my creation...please leave a comment, I look forward
hearing from you.

Until next time,
