It’s Blog Hop Time!

Thanks for joining me on our first ever design team Blog Hop!  You should have just visited Jan Henning’s blog.  We have been working hard to give you some amazing projects using Graphic 45’s “A Ladies Diary”, and “A Proper Gentleman” papers!  Thank you Graphic 45 for sponsoring us!!!
My first project is a canvas clock!

I cut out a Paris Eiffel Tower with my Summer In Paris Cricut cartridge.  I covered the canvas with gel medium.  I stuck the tower onto the canvas.  I then crunched up some pink tissue paper and covered the canvas.  I then painted over the tissue with mod podge.  The pink tissue was a bright fushia, and that didn’t go with the papers, so I white-washed it with some watered-down white paint.  To give it some pink color that matched the papers closer, I used  Bubblegum Pink Glimmer Mist, and Cherry Cola Chalkboard Mist.  I distressed the edges of the pretty lady then attached it using mod podge.  

I cut some of the ladies (since they had numbers beside them) out to use for the clock/time.  I then added bling for the rest of the numbers.

I added some bling flourishes to add some sparkle!

I used some pearly bling over the Ladies Diary title.  And added a Prima flower and another flower I pieced together myself using a Prima centre.  The little rose is from I Am Roses.

Here I used a flower I pieced together with a fancy centre (not sure what company) as the main flower.  Then a Prima yellow flower, a couple I Am Roses, and a Maya Road yarn flower.  The leaves are pieces from some silk flowers I took apart, and the white leaf is something from my Mother-in-law’s stash.

I used some of the border strips from the paper collection to add some interest on the bottom of the canvas.

Here’s another close-up of the clock.

I hope you liked my project!  This is the first canvas I’ve ever done!  If you leave a comment on this project, and a comment on my second project, and join my Facebook Page you will be entered in a draw to win this prize:
