mixed media canvas "spring" {DT work for heartfelt creations}

hello crafty friends!

it's wednesday and i've got a brand new HEARTFELT CREATIONS project to share with you. it's another one of my season mixed media canvas, featuring the amazing DELICATE ASTERS COLLECTION - 



 first i covered the canvas with gesso. then i added color using my AMAZING panpastels – i mixed light and dark green, blue, violet and dark purple to match the colors of the pattern papers. for the background i used the following HC stamp sets: HC script aster background set; HC delicate asters and butterflies set and HC tattered background set. i stamped the script in the middle of the canvas using HC large elegant word background set. to finish off my background i colored the butterflies with TIM HOLTZ violet distress markers. 

for the doll you need my sketch, HC classic edition paper collection {for the doll} and HC delicate asters paper collection {for the dress}. You can download the sketch HERE

i printed the sketch few times on a normal paper and cut out all the different elements. after i cut the doll parts from pattern paper i distressed their edges with RANGER "black jet" archival ink. assemble the and paper doll as pictured. to add extra glamour to my doll i added glitter to the "ribbon" and the Prima flower center pearl to decorate the bow.

i stamped the little asters on greenish pattern paper using the HC delicate asters set and HC delicate asters die. for the flower centers i used STICKLES “copper” glitter glue.

i fussy cut the butterflies and the green swirl from pattern paper, embossed them slightly and added them to my canvas. then i stamped and die cut the purple asters, added glitter glue in the middle and arranged them around the paper swirl.

i hope you enjoyed today's post!
