I’m having lunch with a couple of girlfriends later this week and always like to take a little something to these. I poked around in my stash and remembered a couple of canvases I bought at Michaels in their then $1 Section. Gathered those and a few other things:
Michaels canvases, Recollections parchment textured paper cut to size, Recollections Die Cut pack:
Mod Podged the paper onto the canvases and then grabbed some coordinating scraps from my stash and MP’d those on top. While that was drying, I covered a couple of the die cuts with glue ( any clear drying glue works) and covered ( mostly ) with orange glitter. I didn’t want full coverage…wanted some bare spots.
Once my canvases were dry, I applied these adhesive designs ( and threw away the packaging before taking a pic! but I found them at Ben Franklin.) Just cut the pieces I wanted and applied and then went over them with variegated craft foil.
Once ,my glittered friends were dry, I glued them down to the canvas then went about embellishing with rolled flowers, metal numbers, self adhesive rhinestones and some pom pom ribbon.
Now I need to find some bags to upcycle to put these in !

Eeeeeeeeeeek! LOVE LOVE LOVE these! Fab work my dear!
These are really fun, Carol! I LOVE that the glitter doesn't cover all of the images. More spooky that way. ;)
These are SO pretty! I esp love the ombre shading on "frightmare" - which is a cool word! And the coppery glitter on those black cutouts: gorgeous1
OMGoodness! Love this!
Very cute Christina!
