Love, Wish, Dream 39

Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! We have just been relaxing, enjoying time at home. Jerry and April flew back to their home in San Francisco yesterday ~ time sure does fly.

I had some time to simply play around for fun, joining along with several of my favorite challenges while using various products. I made the canvas shown below featuring a photo of Angie that was taken more than 10 years ago while we were on a family ski vacation.
To create this project, I first added lots of texture using 13arts Ayeeda Modeling Paste along with the Petal Circles Stencil. Once dry, I applied various mists from my stash including 13arts Ayeeda Bordeaux Pearl Mist which is the vibrant shade of pink in the right lower hand corner. For the title, I stamped a sentiment from a Tim Holtz set using Adirondack Archival Ink because it is permanent and water resistant then colored using mist.
I framed Angie's photo with a painted, glittery chipboard frame and a trio of beautiful die cut snowflakes that were made using Simon Says Stamp Fun Flakes:
I'm entering this canvas in the Craft Stamper challenge which is to create a project featuring The Ombre Technique, The Sunday Stamper challenge where Hels is challenging us to incorporate the word WISH and The Scrap Africa challenge where the theme is to incorporate Glitter, Snowflakes and Masking

Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Be Sweet ;)
