Petite Frames, Cards and a Canvas

Check out this little cutie from Corrina ...

Love Blooms Mini Canvas

I wanted something a little fun for my study, and my2angels has all these gorgeous glimmer mists... and I have a wee stash of chipboard... and then these too too cute petite frame charms came in my DT pack, and here is the result.

I started by misting a plain white canvas in a rainbow effect with 4 different glimmer mists - denim blue, honeydew, pink taffy and yellow daisy.

While that was drying, I misted a scrapware vine with black magic glimmer mist (on the naked chip it went a gorgeous dark grunge gold colour), a scrapware bird on a branch, and a scrapware snail from the bugs set with black magic and denim blue mists. The Buzz and Bloom flowers were from the arboretum set, and they were also misted.
I cut the faces of my three gorgeous children out and placed them into the my2angels petite silver frames. I love the effect of the gorgeous little frame charms on this.

The title is out of the ever handy Carolee's Creations Adorn It Tiny Letters.

And some gorgeous cards to share from Guest DT Sandra ...

‘Flower Card’ – Some more embossing and a 3D’d flower made from Websters Love Yourself paper. I coloured it with light and dark pink markers to add a bit of dimension, and finished it off with some black velvet ric rac and a rhinestone in the centre.

‘Thinking of You’ card

I loved the flowers and the butterfly in the paper, Websters Pages Pure Grace, so chose simply to pop a pearl in the middle of each flower and to dimensional magic the wings of the butterfly (perhaps a bit hard to see in the photo).

I’ve added some random lace and pink ric rac and another gorgeous gardenia to finish it off. With the charm, I popped a little antique bronze ‘love’ charm inside the petite silver frame, coloured the background and filled it with dimensional magic.

I love the effect of this one with a charm in a charm!

And finally, I cut a frame from Websters Lifes Portrait Reflections Pattern Paper, added a white canna lily, brown gardenia and a couple of leaf charms and created a journalling card for a future layout

Thank you so much Sandra for sharing your wonderful creations this month with us, its been so inspiring and I too, love your idea of the charm in the charm

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend
