Elegant Expressions Prima Altered Reed Diffuser that I created this past weekend.
I was walking around our local Walmart just taking in all the home decor items for some inspiration and stumbled across the candle section. They had the cutest little glass jars of all sizes and shapes which sparked my creative mind to think hmmmm how could I alter this...my mind went right to "PRIMA"!!!! My local scrapbook store just got in the new Prima Printery paper collection and I knew that is what I wanted to use to create a altered home decor item....

Here is my 2nd Canvas art piece I have ever made, and I think it turned out OK. I created this for Simon Says Stamp and Show Blog Challenge this week it's all about "ANYTHING GOES", be sure to stop over at their blog to be inspired by the Design Teams artwork and join in for your chance to win some goodies.Let me walk you through my canvas piece, first I painted it blue, then glued some cardstock and pattern paper that I ran through some texture fades, before gluing down I inked with distress inks over the raised images. Did some stamping and glimmer misting.
Using some Die Cuts I created the dress form, thimble, birdcage, bird along with the flowers: distressed them with ink, stains, glimmer mist, perfect pearls mist, (one of my fav's is after you ink and spray while it's still wet crumple the paper in your hands, then ink the edges gives it a real vintage feel.
Added some seam binding which was cream, I colored it with glimmer mist and perfect pearl mist, again crumpled it up and heat set it to hold it's wrinkles and crinkles!!!! Added some flowers, bling and findings my art piece was complete.
