This week at the Mixed Media Monday challenge we've been asked to use our leftovers ~ got plenty of 'em, as I'm sure we all do! OK, maybe I'm really obsessive about these; I recently showed my husband my envie with the label of 'Tiny Paper'. It's moments like these that you KNOW you are truly loved *sigh*.
My 6" x 12" canvas board began with paint... several coats of it! The skyline piece is built from cutting strips of paper scraps and gluing them down on cardstock. I traced the skyline outline (modified from some of my clip art) on the back of the cardstock and cut it out. Some Titan Buff paint was smeared around on the skyline to unify the scraps a bit. I stamped and embossed various star and swirl stamps directly on the canvas ~ I've never done this before but it was easy and the effect is great! I also used a Tim Holtz mask in the upper right corner and applied embossing around it as well.
The angel image is courtesy of the lovely Karen, The Graphics Fairy ~ this is the only NON-leftover on this canvas. The phrase ~ and inspiration ~ are courtesy of Sir Paul and a tune by this name on his new CD, 'Good Evening NYC' (a wonderful gift from said wonderful husband above ;). The song and the words are so uplifting and positive. Oh yes, the gorgeous tinsel style glitter is by Martha Stewart and available at Michael's in many splendid colors.
