Guest designer project for Freespirit Productions 5 inch canvas


Hey guys today I wanted to share a little canvas I made for my guest designer spot for Freespirit Production Etsy store... They have some amazing laces and the most amazing angel... The canvas stands 5 by 5 inches and I loved the fact that it came with the little stand... It is so cute I love them but love it more now it done
To check out all Freespirit Production's details and to buy some amazing stock please click the links below:

                                            Web page: http://www.freespiritsproductions.com/


As you guys can see this is the canvas before I started 
sorry about the mat its the one i use when inking and painting


Then using gesso and a roller brush covered the bear in case it showed though..
It took about five coats


All papers are distressed using my Heidi Swapp distresser
I use paper from Happily Ever Crafter called Fab Scraps Heritage collection love these papers
I then picked another sheet and packed into the sheet so when I curled it back I could not see white
I did it on both sides and slotted another bit of the striped papers underneath
I then slid a piece of the dusty rose coloured lace and the clear pearls (light hits them they are a rainbow)
from Freespirit Productions placed them underneath the tear love the look of them poking out
 I then on the right hand side cut a litte bit out,distressed in and added dry wall underneath it
I then added a Tim Holtz name plate from Hez Scrapbooking  in the silver tone
I then on purple cardstock stamped using a Kaisercraft stamp life's sentiments I embossed it in silver
After glueing it all down using glossy accents I then added some rhinestones that are silver but go rainbow also
I then started layering a number of flowers from I am Roses and Kaisercraft 
Leaves are also Kaisercraft love these leaves are such a bright green
Then added one of the lovely angels that I got in my dt package from Freespirit Productions placed her sitting on top of the flowers loved that look kinda looks like she is dreaming kinda a on cloud...
I then added two corners on the top right and bottom left then thing was they were so silver ..
The Tim Holtz name plate was like a blacky-silver so I decided to paint it back then went over it with some sandpaper so now its black and has that little shine through of the silver
I then added in my curled stems and butterfly from 3 butterfly Punch from Martha Stewart

The stand I ran the dusty pink lace across it and the pearl strand all from my dt package from Freespirit Productions I then used the same butterfly punched it out added a rhinestone and attached it to the stand

Items used : paper -Fabscraps Heritage collection
Angel and lace: Freespirit Productions
Flowers-
Kaisercraft Aubergine Large bloom (Largest flower)
Kaisercraft small Bloom in Aubergine
Cherry blossom I am roses zs3-827

I also if you don't know have a Facebook page which has all my work and you can purchase any of my cards prices starting at $3.00 for simple to $5.00 for more with lots of flowers the link to see that is Just Cards By Sara



For my first card I have used Fabscrap Heritage collection and distressed all edges
There is a number of layers which turned out easy to get rid of a tonne of scraps I had I keep everything
The heart is a Tim holtz die a friend sent me it was covered with Luminarte Polished Pigments in English Lavender these things are great you have to options with them use them as a powder they aren't transparent so they colour great compared to perfect pearls also they can be made into paint also they change a shade of colour when wet which is awesome if you guys want I can do a video on it.
In the top right hand corner using the Pink Paislee London market stamp set and made the banner free hand
Then I layered some Lace Mama lace down the bottom and layered a strip of sticky back pearls to the top of it
Then in the corner I have layered a number I am roses and Kaisercraft , wing charm from Charm Aholic , pen nib from ebay 150 for $6.00 (bargain) ,vintage button 
and a pearl stamen from Kittyscrap Post store






For my first card I have used Fabscrap Heritage collection and distressed all edges
Have then layered another sheet on top and created a window
On the middle part also created a tear with a craft knife placed some dry wall tape underneath so you can see that and also paper underneath
I have placed fasinator netting in the window then cutting lace into bit adding it to 2 of the corners
I have stamped a sentiment using a Kaisercraft stamp called Dreams
I then in the top right hand side added a corner from Charm Aholic
I then added some flowers from Kaiercraft ,I am roses and pearl stamens
Added extra Martha Stewart punched branches I bought from Ebay (they punch them the colours you want)
I also punched some butterflies using Martha stewarts 3 butterfly punch with a Kaisercraft Plum pearl in the middle

have painted that brown to look aged

The butterflies are punched using Martha Stewart Three butterfly punch I punched them to make them not as girlie out of sandpaper you can punch anything out of this material because I personal find male cards can sometimes be hard to find embellishments.
