Hi everyone! Mia here from the Philippines and I'm so happy to be on the Buzz and Bloom 2010 DT. I'm having a blast working with their products.
For my first post here on the blog, I wanted to share with you an artsy canvas project that I did using some of Buzz and Bloom's chipboard products. Since we just celebrated Valentine's Day, I wanted to document a special relationship I have with a little girl named Sam. Her mom is one of my dear friends and ever since we met this little girl has managed to make her way into my heart.
I wanted this project to be artsy but to still keep it simple so as to focus on the photo and the message I wanted to convey. For the canvas itself, I used gesso and a lot of misting for the base. I used the heart from the CB Mini Tokens Butterfly Kisses set next to the photo. Normally I would have painted this but because of the background it's on I decided to keep it raw so it would stand out more.
As for my title, I used the CB Shelby Alphabet - Uppercase (love, love, love this font!). I brought out my embossing supplies for this, which is a rarity since I almost never use them anymore. I inked the letters of my title in black pigment ink before adding red glitter embossing powder to make the red pop out more.
There you have it. An artsy yet simple canvas project for a little girl who has stolen my heart. Hope you all enjoyed this project. Thanks for stopping by!
