Tattered Angels Spring Canvas and 7Gypsies Library Drawer

{NOTE: I really must apologize for the incomplete blog post. I’ve been having a horrible time with Word Press and formatting. It has taken me hours just to get this much done. I must say WordPresswon!}

Hello from cold and rainy North Carolina. Today is my day to share with you and I have 3 very different projects.

I started this 7Gypsies Library Drawer last year after seeing a blog post from Tammy Tutterow back in 2011. I knew I had to create a similar idea and I did but didn’t finish it. My resolve this year is to do exactly that and share with you my progress. I created 3 mini layouts to show how NATURE makes me happy. Many shades of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and Glimmer Glam were used to create each LO…

Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam ~ Ocean Spray

Another canvas board project is a reminder of  “where”  I ‘ve lived and how it has helped to create who I am. I utilized old maps, Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist in Patina, Canvas Corp twine and a 7Gypsies hanging charm. I love the simplicity of this canvas.

I need some sunshine and flowers but without these April showers we may not see the flowers. So to help along Spring I would like to share with you my 2nd canvas in my Seasons series.    The background was created with several colors from the Plain Jane collection. I used the Balzer Designs Mini Rain stencil and Golden Glass Beads Medium to create the rain…once dry several coats of Tattered Angels Blue Skies were misted over the stenciled area . Once dry I splatted Ocean Spray Glimmer Glam on the canvas and the alphabet also. Tiny clear dewdrops were applied with Helmar 450 Quick Dry Glue. Of course a Spring canvas would not be complete with a garden  of flowers in a myriad of colors. I love using the Prima flowers that come without color so I can mix and match any Glimmer Mist colors I want.
