Onto todays make - well its a canvas made with a number of challenges in mind - firstly A Vintage Journey where the theme is Time Flies... Well I believe very much that time flies and my canvas is a reaction in that we should all try to slow down .... and take time to smell the roses. I have used two TH dies in the making of this canvas and also used distress inks on the background plus TH grungeboard letters.
I made the canvas by firstly creating some texture on the background - I used grungepaste and a TH stencil and also some grungeboard letters that I stuck to the canvas. Then I painted over using distress paints and also some pebeo acrylic paint. Next I did some background stamping using small stamps from papermania and oakhouse studio.
Next I got busy with the melt pot and moulds from WOW, martha stewart and modgepodge. I made the roses and hearts and butterflies using UTEE clear mixed with some red and purple. Then I stamped my prima doll and paper pieced her dress using distress inks and a stamp from Oak house studio. I also did some die cutting.
Finally I assembled all the pieces. I did have fun making this - I do hope you like it!

Thanks for dropping by today - I hope you had fun! My poor hubby didn't have fun yesterday - he had his pocket picked in Buenas Aires. He's been there since Tuesday night last week. Thankfully he didn't have his passport with him so at least we'll get him back as planned very soon! Bless him - it sounds like he was the victim of a distraction ruse. Very sad - but he seems okay - just a bit wiser.
Hope to see you soon.
