Tara is giving away one stamp set each day & Too Cute by Jessica is giving away $25 gift card to her store (regular priced items).

Here is the project I created...


For my project, I created a mixed media canvas. I can't remember the name of the papers I used...it was a mixed-media pack I picked up on clearance at Hobby Lobby a while ago. I used gesso and acrylic paint on the background. Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste was used through a Crafter's Workshop Reverse Chicken Wire stencil. I used several stamps on the background, including a Tim Holtz Cracks stamp and the flowers that are on the new CDD Blooming For You set. The chandelier is from The Paper Studio Spare Parts and it's draped with tulle. The butterfly is from Memory Box and covered with Doodlebug Designs Sugar Coating. The flowers are a mixture of Prima and The Paper Studio. Memory Box Floral Vines were cut in velum and tucked among the blooms, along with twine.


The doll is a Julie Nutting's Priscilla with Top Hat. I used a Tim Holtz script stamp on her and colored her with Prismacolor Pencils. Tulle was added for her skirt. She was outlined in charcoal.


Take Time to Smell the Flowers and the butterfly are from the the CDD Blooming for You stamp set.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. DL.Art - July Linky
  2. Word Art Wednesday - Anything Goes
Next up on the Line Up is the amazing, sweet and talented Shelly. Be sure to hop with us tomorrow!! Winners will be picked from a different blog each day,so the more you comment the more chances you have to win.

Karen said...

My sweetest friend, if only I had the words to properly express how much I adore this! It makes my heart yearn to create a mixed media project, which in itself is quite the compliment. :o) The colors are spectacular together and I am beyond in love with the tulle-draped chandelier! I have such a thing for both items and when combined... well, I'm swooning over here. :o) The Prima doll looks amazing! I LOVE your choices for her. The butterfly and flowers are such stunning touches. Amazing canvas, my ever talented Lisa! I hope you are proud of this masterpiece. :o) Have a blessed and beautiful day!

Hugs and blessings,
Karen
