This is my first project finished for my Shimelle class. Its not finished the way it's SUPPOSED to be finished, because I took the "make a 3 dimensional frame" to a different level, but I do LOVE the end results! I created this 12x12 canvass this morning, and it only took about 2 hours! Here is a little tutorial on how it was done
I knew instantly that I was going to want to use Basic Grey's "Mellow" line on this project. It is one of my favorites, and went perfectly for what I wanted to create
I chose the paper with the trees as my background paper, and then modge podged it to a 12x12 canvas-both underneath and on top. I like to mod podge the top as well, because #1, it makes it stick better, #2, it gives it texture, and #3, brings out the color! (used matte not gloss!)
see how the colors are brighter?
I then added some cloud paper to the top and inked the edges. I added the hearts (from the mellow punch outs) and drew around them with black pen. The rub on title is American Crafts. I also mod podged over the entire title.
Next, I cut out two house shapes (my own design) onto chipboard
I covered the chipboard houses in the mellow paper, and added the title with the mellow stickers. I once again outlined the stickers with black pen to make them stick out more. I mod podged the houses.
I then added the houses to the canvas and added the chimney. What you can't see in the pics is that I used thick double sided foam tape to add dimension, and on the left and right side I added it triple thick so they are at an angle.
The last picture is of my finished product. I have it hanging in my scrap area above my computer! I added the picture (dont know if you can tell, but they have underwear on their heads! *hence the title "fruit of my womb") I matted the pic on Bazzill black cardstock, and then added the mod podged figures. They also have double sided foam tape behind them and are raised above the pic.
I wish the pics did the colors justice on this project, cause it has been one of my faves to create! Enjoy!
