a Thankful Heart... 44

Mona Pendleton | Friday, November 16, 2012 @ 3:26 PM | , , , , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are having a great day / evening! I had the day off from work so I decided to play around with some of my favorite products ;) I made this small Autumn wall hanging featuring a sentiment from Inspired by the Front Porch - Fall and random stamped polka dots from LJD Darling Dots, .
My project came together rather quickly because I used embellishments that I had accumulated from previous made projects. I had some spare die cut leaves that were made using Die-namics Fall Leaves and stamped using a text stamp from Thankful Leaves. The heart canvas embellishment was made using Die-namics Hearts a Plenty:
I had a few left over pre die cut roses that were made using Die-namics Mini Royal Roses:

So many times I wish I had taken photos along the way so today I did just that. In case you were curious what my project looked like before I embellished it. I used the following beautiful heidi swapp Color shine spritzes: Tropicana Teal, Bronzer, Black Velvet, Sweet Cherry and Gold Lame
All the spritzes leave behind a gorgeous shimmer as shown below:
I like to place the embellishments on my project prior to adhering to see if it catches my eye :)
I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy whatever you do! 

Thanks so much for visiting! I'll be back Sunday with a project to share for CR84FN67 ~ hope to "see" you then.

Be Sweet ;)
