Happy Mother's Day & Mixed Media Canvas Corp Brands

It's Sunday....
It's Mother's Day!

In honor of Mother's Day I created an mixed media card, with layers of
textures with depth. I truly believe that a handmade card or gifts 
are the best! 

"Happy Mother's Day"
5x7 size 

I gathered a few of Canvas Corp Brands products and started to rip,
tear, distress and add paste with stencils.

I also too Canvas Corp Black & Ivory Chicken Wire Cardstock, I 
fussy cut out the chicken wire pattern...then embossed it many times
to build up the layers and sprayed with Tattered Angels glimmer mist to 
add color tones and texture.

Grabbed a Petaloo flower that was laying around my desk...I colored it with
Tattered Angels glimmer mist it's a great way to watercolor.
Butterfly I fussy cut and water colored the same as the flowers.

I stamped the sentiment and cut out a banner shape distress the edges 
and inked it up and tucked it into the flower.
The water color purple flower is from Tattered Angels
 Mixed Media Origins-Nature. 

I want to wish all mother's and grandmother's a
 Beautiful and Happy Mother's Day!

Mixed Media Wooden Block "Explore" colored with Tattered Angels

I bought a wood block from the dollar store from the home decor section. 
I couldn't wait to bring it home to alter it!
I gathered my supplies, old book pages, glimmer mists, paint, stencil, gesso,
and modeling paste. Along with cheese cloth, wooden piece, and a few stamps.
Then the fun thing with mixed media you have 
many layers and much drying time! 

"Explore" Wooden Block

I started with gluing down the old book pages, painting gesso
over the wooden block to cover the image that was already on the block.
Sprayed many layers of beautiful Tattered Angels glimmer mist and paint.

Another layer is using modeling paste and The Crafter's Worshop 
Stencil Specimen #TCW454. Oh how I love this stencil!
Once dried another round of glimmer mists, paint layers....this process 
is the bomb.


I covered the wooden piece with gesso, glimmer mist and 
layers of embossing powder! LOVE IT

Thanks for stopping by, now to create another wooden block 
art piece I will share that as well. Keep your eye out for round two!!!
Stop by Canvas Corp Brands website for the glimmer mist
 and paints there are a ray of colors to choose from.

Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew 2017 "4x4 Canvas"

The Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew 2017!

I'm excited to share again that I am part of this
 amazing design team for another year!
Canvas Corp Brands is made up of 3 great
 brands-7Gypsies, Tattered Angels & Canvas Corp!

You can check out this amazing showcase of the
New Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew over on the 

Here is my 4x4 Canvas Art piece to announce
me as a part of the Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew member.
I'm a little shabby chic, rustic, vintage kind of gal, 
let me walk you through my creative process.

I am drawn to chippy white treasure, old books, textiles and my 
favorite vintage mother of pearl buttons!

I started with Canvas Corp 4x4 Canvas it's a great base
to start your creative project. I took Gesso paint added
strokes of paint here and there, then took old book pages
ripped them into small pieces and glued
 them around the canvas.

I need texture so I added crackle paste allowed it to dry,
then using Tattered Angels glimmer mist sprayed them
over the cracked paste which allows the glimmer mist
to settle in the cracks giving depth.
I added some cheese clothe, 7Gypsies lace trims and 
Canvas Corps burlap cut piece to gather 
under the main focal piece. 

"Butterfly Tag" embellishment!
I started with Canvas Corp Butterflies on Ivory Cardstock,
I cut out on the butterflies and colored it with Tattered Angels
Glimmer mist. It's like watercolor painting 
it's really fun you need to try it.

To create tag I gather a 7Gypsies-Gypsies Moments
Recipe card, added some thread and adhered the colored
butterfly cutout with only glue in the center
 to give the wings lift. 

Hope you have enjoyed my walk through,  I'm so excited to be
apart of the Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew for another
design team be sure to follow the Canvas Corp Brands Blog 
for amazing inspiration and stop by the Canvas Corp Brands Shop
to get yourself these amazing products to create and be sure to share with us!

Primitive Shabby Christmas Decorations-Handmade

I love my primitive shabby rag strip garland...
I created this garland a few years back to 
hang on my tree...which is so pretty wrapped
around the tree with lights twinkling!

But this Christmas I decided to hang it on my curtain
rod on my living room was a perfect 
backdrop for the Christmas tree so loved it!

I found some rusty jingle bells on jute twine garland
at the Christmas Tree Shop a few years back and added them
to my Christmas decorations this year.

Hoping to share more of our Christmas Season with you all, soon but
right now we are up to our necks with boxes and packing for a move.
Crazy I know it to move during the Holidays Crazy I say!

But it is what it is-keep moving forward one box at a time, haha.

Thanks for stopping by,
Peggy Lee
