Love With All Your Heart

I am really excited about finishing this! I started on it months ago! 
I love doing canvases. There's nothing like a paintbrush in my hand to ease my mind.
 You can see the texture on this. The first thing I like to do is put down some tissue paper with Mod Podge. I love the texture. 
The background was done with Faber Castell Gelatos. Scribble the color where you want it with them, then blend with a brush and water. 
The black is stenciled using cardstock I punched this design from. 
 To get the letters, I put down chipboard letters and trace around them. Then I paint and outline them. 
 I love the bright colors! 

Thanks for stopping by! I love having people over ;)
Have an awesome day!

Life's a Beach Birdhouse

It was time for a little Mod Podge! Every once in awhile I get the urge :)
Since I have a bunch few more birdhouses I knew just what I needed to do.
 White paint, paper, stickers,  Mod Podge, and Martha Stewart Antique Effect, and my urge was satisfied.
 This aqua wood design paper from October Afternoon always reminded me of the beach, so I made a little beach house. It makes me think of a lifeguard shack.
 This makes me happy :)
Thank you for stopping by! 
Have a great day!

CPS 5th Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary to Card Positioning Systems
This is a great site for card sketches. If you are at a loss, stop by and pick a sketch!
The sketch for Day 1 is shown below.
 I used various papers from October Afternoon. The all coordinate so well I often use papers from different collections together.
 The stamps are all Unity :) The sentiment is from the February, 2011 KOTM. The heart is from the November, 2010 KOTM
I have been busy, and I will be back tomorrow with some more BIRDHOUSES! I love decorating them :)
Thank you for stopping in.
Have a super day!
