Live Life Canvas

Good Morning Everyone, Rhonda here with you today with my Scrapmatts blog post...

This month I created three totally different projects to share with you all... 

The first of my project's is a canvas "about me" and set by Sofie which was a challenge by itself and I must admit it was the hardest challenge I have faced for some time. 
For starters I didn't possess a recent photo of me, so hubby said ok lets go and take a few photo's, so that was the photo out of the way... 
The next problem I faced was having to use the photo on the canvas, no doubt a lot artists feel the same...

My canvas is titled "Live Life."

Firstly I used three different stencils for the background, I then worked out the rest of the chipboard pieces I would use and tried some stencilling on the them, it turned out quite effective... 

Next I chose what colours I was going to use, I picked a few LSG starburst spray mists. I also inked the chipboard pieces once the texture paste was dry...

I laid the chipboard pieces where I wanted them to go to make sure they would not go past the edge, and once I was happy I glued everything down and I was done...

The products I used for this project are as follows 
Scrapwords 24 - CB1238 in Burnt Cream
LSG - Time Travel Teal
LSG - Jazzy Jivin Purple
LSG - Magnolia Magenta Gold

I also used a few things from my stash 
Prima Flowers - Butterfly - Bulbe
WOC - Sweetheart Blossoms
White Cotton Twine
Texture Paste
A stickpin I made

My second project is a quick present for my husband as it was our Wedding Anniversary on the 23rd March.

Chocolate bar slide cover is called
"Just For You" 

I made the box and I wanted to decorated it very masculine, so it was a prime opportunity to use this awesome chipboard set from my DT pack...

Once I glued everything into place I got a small piece of chain and tucked one end under the belt and joined the other end to the top of the pocket watch... 

Products used for this projects are 
Mens Accesories 01 - CB1201
Buckles & Belts 01 - CB 1231
Patterned Paper - Fab Scraps - Shabby Blues (Retired)
Cardstock - Steel Grey Foil (From My Stash) A piece of chain.

My third and final project for this month is a card titled
"Birthday Wishes"

For this card I started with a white card base, then started building, before I got to far I found the Dress form chipboard piece I was going to feature and placed it on a piece of white card where I wanted to start creating the background, I had a mauve spray mist  that I wanted to use and spayed over the chipboard piece using it as a stencil in a few different places, I then used my heat tool and dried the card and my dress form chipboard piece, it turned out really pretty... 

I used some gauze to sit under my Dress form with a pearl trim, a small resin crown and a crown charm, a velvet flower and some WOC flowers 
I also used Micro Chips 18 to sit under the greeting... 

Products I used for this card are
CB6036 - Dress Forms 01
MC1026 - Micro Chips 18
Cardstock - White and Teal,
White Gauze,
Pearl Trim,
Metal charm Crown,
 Resin Crown,
 Velvet Flower,
 Seed Beads in Teal and Mauve,
 Micro Beads in Silver, 
Pearls in Teal and Mauve, 
 and some Sequins.
