'Love Always' Reverse Canvas - My Creative Scrapbook - Prima Delight Collection - Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powders

Hello again!  HAPPY Tuesday!!  Yes I am on a "Be Happy"
drive at the moment because I'm actually miserable & suffering
from my wisdom tooth extraction just over a week ago.  I was
expecting to feel better by now but no such luck...Anyway...

After creating my 3 layouts with my kit from My Creative Scrapbook
this month I had so much goodness still left over that I decided to 
make a quick off-the-page project as a gift for my son's school
 Final Year dance date. 

  She had made a big effort herself to look absolutely 
spectacular & must have spent a small fortune achieving it! 
{not that she's not NATURALLY gorgeous!}

I was 100% inspired to create this after seeing THIS work by one
 of the papercrafting artists I most admire in the entire world! 

 I love absolutely EVERYTHING Kasia creates - she's a natural
artist obviously, and I wish I could achieve such beautiful work!

I used Hard Modelling Paste by Golden, applied with a
palette knife, to achieve the uneven effect on the frame, then
pressed some laces & braids in from my My Creative Scrapbook Kit.

Then I sprinkled some Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder directly
 & randomly onto the wet paste, then dried it off with my heat gun.

LOVED making this!  SUCH fun!! 
 I added some random stamping to the frame as 
well then got to work on the contents of the frame. 

 I scrunched up the doily then glazed right over the top of it 
before sprinkling it with Lindy's Stamp Gang "Magic Moon Pearls"
embossing powder at the top & the bottom as I knew my photo 
would go around about the centre.  

I double-looped the organza ribbons into big double bows 
& embellished with Prima flowers, stickers, flairs & brads, 
all from their new "Delight"collection, all hot-glued on to
ensure everything stays in place for a long time to come :)

You can sign up for the fabulous My Creative Scrapbook
Kits right HERE for only $40 a month.  I made 4 projects
with mine this month & STILL have a tonne of stuff left over!
