For my project, I created a Valentine wall hanging! When I decided what I wanted to make and went to Michaels to pick up a canvas, they had a sale on a bundle of ten will be seeing lots more wall hangings from me in the near future!! Plus, I had so much fun doing this one :)
I used Mod Podge and attached an old sheet of music to the frame. Once it dried, I sponged on white paint and then burnt umber. The letters are chipboard and I colored them with Fired Brick Distress Ink and then stamped over them in black with a music note stamp. The border behind the frame is a Spellbinders Borderabilities. The frame is two sizes of Spellbinders Lacy Squares and attached with foam. I embossed the white paper with the hearts Cuttlebug folder.
The heart and wings are Spellbinders dies, and I cut them out three times and attached the layers together with foam for dimension. I added glossy accents to the heart and a piece of organza behind the frame. The flowers are Spellbinders Sprial Blossom One, and I cut them out in eco-friendly white felt and then dabbed over them with Worn Lipstck, Tea Dye and Tattered Rose Distress Ink. "I'll always love you" is of course from Owly Hoo!

  22. This is a cool card! I love the wings and heart. The music paper is a really great idea, and really goes along well with the wings and heart.

    Hugs, Pam

  23. Fabulous wall hanging, I love it!!!

  24. This is wonderful! Love all the details and the words are perfect!

  25. My sweet and talented friend, this is absolutely gorgeous! The longer you stare at it, the more beautiful it becomes as you take in all the subtle details. Wall hangings are one of my favorite things to make and own, so my heart pitter-pattered when I saw that's what you had made! :o) The stamped chipboard is truly beautiful. The dimension is gorgeous, the flowers sweet, and the heart/wings so heartfelt. And if you can stand a wee more gushing, I'm in love with the sheet music background (and how you tweaked it) and the touch of organza. (And of course the sparkles!) Blog hop projects are worthy of a gush, but I'll make myself stop there. ;)

    Fabulous work, my sweet friend! I was wondering all day what you had cooked up and it is every bit as marvelous as I anticipated. (Maybe even more! Because you're that amazing.) Thank you for playing along with us at Whimsical Wednesday! Hugs and blessings!

  26. Lisa you never cease to amaze me with the work you put into each project-- the valentine special is another work of art!

  27. Morning Lisa,
    Wow! This is so "Tim Holz-ish". You have really outdone yourself on this one. I love that you have 9 more canvases, so I will be seeing more of these. Love your painted sheet music background...such a cool effect. That organza banner behind your center frame really pulls the eye in. Beautiful work, my dear.
