Happiness... with Handmade Harbour
Hello Everyone! It's Papercraft Party time over at Handmade Harbour today and the theme this week is Happiness. I made a sweet little mixed media canvas to celebrate the beginning of our new year and to remind me to appreciate all that I have in my life rather than moaning about all that I don't have - in other words... to BE HAPPY...smile.
I used this new digital stamp by Wendy of Handmade Harbour called "Girl in Windy Weather" and doesn't she just look happy even in the midst of the "weather"?
and I had so much fun creating the background of this canvas going outside of my paint-spray-ink box and throwing EVERYTHING onto it. I actually stamped and heat embossed the finished background with white embossing powder and then added gold foil accents, I even poked holes through the canvas and used giant circle brads as accents. And of course I used stickles to make it sparkle!
I adhered my copic-colored, stickles-accented image to the canvas using foam pop dots and I applied a liberal coating of Liquid Glass to her boots to make them shine
I Love everything about this little, happy 4x6 canvas and I am sending her off right now to a friend that needs a hug!
So pop on by to the Handmade Harbour blog and see what else by my Design Teammates have created for this challenge... and why not join in? Create something following this weeks theme and link up your blog post to share with the rest of us...
