Love with Paper Doll Marci Spring Showers


Whew! That was a long title!  I have difficulties when trying to come up with a title for my posts. I usually go with the image and if there is a sentiment I incorporate that.  Sometimes when I am stumped I usually end up using the sentiment.  How about you?  Do you have a hard time with titles for your posts?  I'd love to hear how do you come up with your titles?  =D

Today's share is a little canvas project on a clear acrylic background.  I decided to try my hand at my version of mixed media.  I know I'm late to the party as it's all the rage, but when it comes to new things I tend to wait and see before doing.  (haha)  Here is the beginning of the project:

This is a mini canvas colored with Prima Color Bloom sprays in cobalt, summer sky & glistening waves.  The hanging heart banners & Love sentiment are from La-La Land Crafts.  The other hearts were punched out with a Fiskars heart punch & an EK heart punch.  I also stamped some hearts with a heart background stamp.  The image I chose is one of the newly released stamps from CHA, Paper Doll Marci Spring Time also from La-La Land Crafts.  I paper pieced her jacket after stamping the same heart background on to an extra stamped jacket; fun-cut it out and coloring with Copics.  The rest of her was so easy to color.  Here's a little close-up of the right side of the canvas showing off all the details.

The red patterned paper underneath the acrylic was a great find at my local scrapbook store.  I think I bought the last two sheets in the tray.  So happy I have an extra sheet for next year.  I used spray adhesive to glue the paper to the acrylic and it looks seamless.   Last I added a red and white polka dot ribbon.

So that's what I've been doing.  The is the second canvas I made, I'll share the other one in an upcoming post as well as some of the make & take projects from CHA.  For now it's time to sign off.   Thanks a lot for stopping by and thank you for the lovely comments.  Big hugs!
