Another Lucky One

I created another Lucky 13 page today — 4 down and 1 to go until I am caught up! This page was for Elena. She sent me photos of the Mother's Day celebrations in her family. I used a photo of her and her mother. Elena's mom is wearing is a nice blue shirt so I used that as a starting point and painted the entire canvas blue.

A few weeks ago I got a great deal on some felt doilies by Martha Stewart. I cut one of the doilies in half and stitched it to the canvas page. Then I added some Prima felt Voila, lots of flowers, and some grungeboard elements that I Glimmer Misted. After everything was assembled, I Glimmer Misted the age with Irridescent Gold Glimmer Mist.

One of the big challenges in working with paper and canvas is finding a good adhesive. I've been trying different things with varied success but today I tried Glossy Accents. It worked pretty! I was surprised! So hopefully the pages hold up… if you have any ideas about good adhesives for this kind of project, please share!

I am signed up for the Emily Falconbridge class at Pink Pineapple tonight and bummed I can't go–no childcare. So instead I am going to check out the Farmer's Market here in town–it is pretty new and some of my fellow HighDesert Etsy Street Team members are selling there. Hopefully I find something cool cuz I am really sad about missing the class.

  1. Try Fabritac. Love that stuff, I use it to adhere paper to acrylic, and acrylic to acrylic and ribbon to everything.
