Altered Mini Canvas Heart Necklace

With Valentine's Day coming up this weekend, I've been
busy making Valentine decorations, handmade cards, etc....
So this got me thinking why not a piece of jewelry!

Here is my altered
"Mini Canvas Heart Necklace"

I gathered up some items new and old...vintage finds!

It all started with a Canvas Corp Mini Canvas Banner Shape.
I colored my raw canvas piece with Tattered Angels glimmer mist.
Folded the mini canvas shape in half, cut out a heart shape.

Here is some yummie color mists and glaze!!
Lobster, Red Chillies, Wedding Pink, Woven Burlap
and Plumeria Glimmer Glaze.

Time to embellish!!
I first covered my heart with a stencil
and modeling paste let it dry.
Punched my holes added eyelets 
to create my chain through.

The open space was great to tuck in
7Gypsies lace just having it peeking out.
Gathered some vintage lace, trims and buttons 
to embellish!

Enjoy the close up photos...

Thanks for stopping by today.

Hope this inspires you to gather a few supplies
and create your own altered jewelry.

Need a few of the items I used, jump over to the

"THE FIRST SELFIE" Mixed Media Card

Canvas Corp Brands Team Up with Words & Paintery Challenge Blog!

The Canvas Corp Brands Crew was challenged to participate in this challenge as well. This is the outlines of they had to follow. The interpretations are free in form (layout, card, art journal, album, canvas) but they need to be of mixed media type.

You can find out more about this team up challenge over on the 
Words & Paintery Blog, Here.

Here is my take on this fabulous challenge...
(so I can crop them out later.)

I created a mixed media card for the challenge, 
started by gathering my Canvas Corp Brand supplies.

Let me walk you through my mixed media card!
I started with a card base, for the card layers
I used a few pieces of 7Gypsies paper collection
Gypsy Moments-Roses Reflections, Board & Room 
and Express Yourself.

Gave the layers some texture with gesso, modeling paste with 
stencils, cheese clothe, CC grey burlap and rope. Added color using
Tattered Angels mists in color challenge colors with a few extras!

Close ups of the textures of my card...
love the burlap and beads peeking through.

I even colored the CC jute rope with glimmer fun!

Now don't forget to stop by the
Canvas Corp Blog, HERE

You will be so INSPIRED!

Thanks for stopping by today,
Happy Creating
