Hello! I have been playing with mixed media. Talk about fun! I make a huge mess whenever I break out all the mixed media goodness. Paints + sprays + texture paste + Tina = disaster!
Anyhoo, this month at KennyK the DT's theme is anything, but a card. I decided to make a canvas.
The image I used is KennyK's Texting Friends. When I first saw this image, I thought of my sister and I. Since we live so far apart, we rely on our phones to keep us close. We would be lost without being able to call or text each other everyday. Sometimes several times a day.
My first step in this project was to color the image with Copic markers. Then I textured and painted the canvas. After it was dry, I added beautiful laces from Pamela Joy Pifer Wrights FB shop (the love charm is from there also), the image and flowers.
I had an idea of the sentiment that I wanted, but I didn't know the exact wording so I went to Pinterest and searched sister quotes.
That's when I found this sentiment. It fit my sister and I perfectly. We have a really special bond. I am truly thankful for her and our friendship.
Here's a close up of the gorgeous laces from Pamela's. I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink to darken the bottom of the pink lace.
Thank you all for stopping by. Hope you have a craftastic day!
