Canvas Sparkle


It's still Wednesday and this is my second post, so if you have just had a nosey at my work space thanx for coming to have a look at this little beauty I created yesterday. It's sunny woo hoo I took this just before I was about to put all my washing out lol couldn't have all that in the back ground now could I? So what do you think? This is a kit from 3D Jean Kit for the grand some of £4  I have lots of stuff left over too, so I think it was worth it. I am not usually a kit kinda girl but I saw some of the DT examples and I thought I would have to have a go. I put some of my own crafty ribbon on but apart from that the rest was in the kit and if you do pop by 3dJean Blog you can have a look around, there are a few DT examples  and they are all different so it's a kit that won't look like a million others, it's still your work (if you know what I mean) that is what appealed to me about this kit. I thought I would play with the peeps over at the The Three Muses the theme this week is 'hats & crown & wings & things' so you have to inclued at least one or all of these items I had fun making this little canvas, make sure you pop over the people who play always come up with some knock out stuff!


Now if you look at the first link (the kit) all the items are listed there. I love this Croco paint (which she doesn't sell as yet) it works like a dream and better even than the Ranger stuff so it is on my list of to buys! I have sprayed it with two colours one that came with the kit and an extra colour I bought from the shop too. Talk about glitter!


Look at the sun shining off this, so shiny (Mrs Magpie is popping her head up again) I love sparkle! It was very simple to make just a canvass some paint left over night (It must dry naturally, I am told this is a must for the croco effect to be at it's best) then some sparkly spray and a 1x1 chip board some wire and hey presto .I could make these again and again so I may have to pop by and get some more canvases but you can use the stuff you have in your stash I am sure GM but and the ranger distress crackle (but believe me this croco is a far better product in my opinion so I will be buying this instead of the ranger version from now on and you know I love RANGER!) Okay that's it from me. I will be popping round some blogs but I must get started with that material and those yummy frames from the previous post! Love Dawn xx

Thanks for the tip about 3D Jean - I've just ordered a couple of canvas project frames, one for me and one for my daughter. They're very good value, aren't they? Looks like you had lots of fun with this canvas.

Julie Kirk said...

reat use of the kit. I agree wiht youabout it being easy to put your own mark on the kit - we [the DT] made ours in the same room and still didn't come out with the same end result!

Thanks for sharing your work with us.

The colour you've used on this canvas is my all time favourite kind of blue, and that together with the wonderful textured crackle effect is just gorgeous. Thanks for joining in Dawn.

Lovely little canvas. I couldn't seem to get it to enlarge. I would've loved to have seen it better. The blue is delicious, and it's SO well done Thanks for sharing your talent.
(Sorry you missed the maps and crows!)
