April Showers…08 April 2012 | By admin in Altered Art, Blossoms and Leaves, Paisleys
Hi! Jen Matott here and I’m so excited to share my first Basically Bare project as an Art Assembly DT member! I love altering canvas and was inspired by the clouds in the Celestial Shapes and the flowers in the Blossoms and Leaves shape sets to create this Spring -themed home decor piece.
I used a Crafter’s Workshop cloud template to create the patterned paper clouds and embossing powder clouds.
I created a watery blue background and added all the layers of clouds . The flowers are so cute… some were covered with patterned papers and some stamped and colored with Zig Fabric markers.
Finally, I added the words with Pink Paislee’s tiny letters and added their buttons to the centers of my flowers. I also stamped and embossed this beautiful butterfly (using the Build a Butterfly stamp from WOW! Embossing powders) over patterned paper to add some color to the piece.
This little beauty is sitting on my mantel to welcome Spring into my house! I hope you enjoyed my project using the Basically Bare shapes! They are adorable and fun to work with!
