Happy Girls...A Mixed Media Canvas & a tutorial 52

Mona Pendleton | Friday, March 29, 2013 @ 12:18 PM | , , , , , ,

 Hi there! Hope you are having a great day / night! I have the day off from work and before I go for a bike ride, I took the time to create a mixed media canvas to share with you today inspired by Anna Dabrowska featuring a fun photo of Meredith ;) Meri looooves to play with makeup so one weekend, she brought her case over and this is what she came up with:
I combined various MFT buttons, canvas flowers made using Die-namics dies along with metal and chipboard embellishments. The canvas flower shown below was made using  Die-namics Pretty Posies dies:
The canvas butterfly was made using Die-namics Butterflies and the heart (hidden behind the gear) was made using Die-namics Hearts a Plenty:
More canvas flowers made using Die-namics Perfect Petal Trio and Die-namics Upsy-Daisy dies:
and the sentiment is from MFT Clearly Sentimental about Audrey Hepburn:
Thanks so much for visiting ~ I hope you have a great weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
