So I says to myself.. “SELF”… you have SOOOO many goodies in Bellaland to make scrapbook layouts etc.. why not SHOW THEM OFF??? So I respond to myself.. “SELF, you are 1000% right”.. and hence, SCRAPPY TOOSDAY was born (ahem yesterday) and a bit of a schizophrenic was born as well (lol).
Every tuesday, we will be showing layouts, canvases, altered items etc showcasing our different papers, tools, embellishments.. just MO’ eye canDEE… so what do da sistahs THINKY about this? (please say you love the idea..LOL)
So here goes. Here is my piece to resistance
It’s a canvas and it makes me SOOO VERRRY HAPPPPPY. I had a 12*12 canvas which I painted with Claudine Helmmuth’s TRADITIONAL TAN. I absolutely LOVE her paints (we carry the whole range of course!) and if you don’t know who she is, take a looky here and DROOL.. she is AWESOME!! We carry her paintbrushes and all her mediums as well. So what I did here was paint the canvas with TRADITIONAL TAN. Allowed it to dry. After it dried (about 1/2 hour), I chose my papers (THAT is a happy bella moment). I decided to use the Fancy Pants collection. I used 2 borders from the ON A WHIMSY STRIPS paper. I used the “this is a crazy life” for the top portion and the vertical stripes strip for the “grass”. I also used the cloud border under the this is a crazy life. (CLEAR AS MUD? LOL). I applied everything with Claudine’s GEL MATTE MEDIUM to adhere to the canvas. I then cut out the QUICKUTZ TREE out of the scraps.. dark brown prism as the background, some Prism LIME and snippets of fancy pants BUNCHES paper and FRESH AIR paper. This die is one of my new faves.. I just love it.. and you can use the head of the tree as clouds as well (2 sizes).. I’m telling you.. not just a hot bod and gorgeous FACE .. but there’s a BRAIN in there too! (LOLOL). Take your pick of buttons (another little obssession of mine) and VOILA! I adhered all of the buttons with the MATTE medium and I painted a thin coat over the whole piece. Dries beautifully and NOT tacky.. LOVEY IT!
Such a simple Happy project! Hope you LOOVE da scrappy tooosdays (as this is the first..LOL)
