~Stashing through the snow - Project #2 - Mixed Media Canvas

Over on the Cricut Circle message board, we were challenged by the lovely Sara to Dig it Out!  Dust it Off!  Put it to Use!  No buying unless it was for a specific project and we would use it right away.

A little rummaging through my drawers produced these really cool Fancy Pants Glitter Cuts.  I'm not sure why I bought them (because they were shiny???), but decided they would look awesome on a mixed media canvas.  I started by decoupaging my canvas with some Soreh Designs tissue paper I found in my cart and I used Dylusion inks over that.  But I didn't like how deep the colors were, so I set that one aside and made a second one using Heidi Swapp color mists.  Much better!  I added my Glitter cuts and some rub-ons and doodling and MME enamel dots.  I made a little bow from feather yarn and attached at the top.  Finally I glued hangers on the back of the canvas and some pretty pink ribbon to hang my creation.  This stash busting is a very fun activity!  Can't wait to see what other little treasures I come across digging through my drawers.  I may have to start giving stuff away!  Thanks for stopping by!
