First, I know I’m not a genius but I sure felt like one when I made this project. If it’s been done before… don’t tell me. I want to savor this feeling for a few more days. 🙂
I went a little over board this Mini Catalog season with the beautiful Felt Flurries. Now believe me, I have used them. I have applied them to cards, mini books, Canvas projects… the list goes on. The other day I found some of these glass ornaments in my "stash" of stuff. I wanted to make something pretty and was sitting on the floor and had an ah ha moment. I think I scared Russ. He was playing on my computer and I let out a big scream and he turned quickly to find this…
I was so super excited when that felt snowflake fit over that glass ball. I made 6 of them super quick. I just cut strips of designer paper and curled them on my paper piercer from my Crafters Tool Kit. Then I dropped them in the ornament one by one. I carefully put my felt snowflake on then the cap. I loved using that beautiful Rope ribbon from the mini catalog. Isn’t that the best stuff??? I would love to see this in the next catalog. So many great things can be done with it. Last thing I applied was the great rub on’s that Stampin’ Up! carries. This one is Season of Cheer. WOW have I gotten a lot of use out of these Rub On’s. I would say at least 70% of my craft show projects used these rub ons.
So, again… I am sure someone may have figured this idea out long ago… but I will continue to think I am a genius for just a few short days.
I have one more thing to share. Some of you may have seen this project before. I really love scrapbooking on the wall and have been teaching Altered Canvas for some time. Last night I had my last canvas class for the season and I wanted to share with you. These are super fun and easy.
Lots of fun products were used on this canvas. I used the Big Felt Flurries, Designer Brads, Season of Cheer Rub On’s, and Old St. Nick Rub Ons. I also used that gorgeous Chocolate Chip double stitched ribbon, Chipboard Snowflake and that fun Rope again. If you want to see a tutorial on this, click HERE!
The most common question I get asked when making a canvas are the photos. I highly recommend that you use photos printed from a professional place such as Wal Mart or Target. Do not use a photo printed from your home printer as the Modge Podge will eat the ink and you will be left with a blank picture. Probably NOT the end result you were looking for.
Well folks. That is all I have to share tonight. All the cleaning I did the other day really did me in. I feel like all the dust bunnies I caught on Sunday have landed in my nose and head. Ugh!
Have a GREAT Wednesday and thanks so much for taking a peek!
