Finnabair Altered Phone Frame C'est Magnifique Kits

Hi friends! I'm back today to share my final dt project for November with C'est Magnifique November kits. In the November Mixed Media Kit was the Finnabair Phone Frame. I had a ton of fun creating with it! The frame accepts mists and mediums very nicely ;)

I covered random areas of the frame with fiber paste, misted the frame with the color shine spray and then I went back and started adding color over the fiber paste with the plum paint. All items mentioned were in this kit. The flowers and leaves were coated in gesso and then sprayed and painted. From my stash I added some pearl mist to just tone down the plum color to finish.

from my stash I used gesso, pearl mist and a torn piece of lace

Thanks for visiting me, have a wonderful weekend!

C'est Magnifique November Reveal

Hello dear friends! Today I'm sharing all of my layouts created with the November Kit Autumn Whispers. 

I created two very simple girly layouts with the Bo bunny Juliet papers found in the Main Kit. I have also used the November Flower Add on. The roses and buttons were covered in a coat of gesso and then painted to alter the colors. I cut and ripped the doily in the kit and placed it around the page. The die cut frame behind the photo was cut out with paper from the kit.

from my stash items gesso, stencil, molding paste and ink

For this layout I just layered with a ton of coordinating die cuts and stickers from the kit. Stenciled with some distress ink and used some stamps. 

 from my stash I used ink, stamps and stencil

This next layout was created with the November Sketch and for the Sketch Challenge and Blog Hop. To find out more details and how you could win some fabulous prizes and join the fun ... go HERE!

 from my stash I used inks, stamps, stencil, molding paste and cheesecloth

This layout was my first layout I created with the kit and I've already shared it. I used acrylic paints and stencil from my stash, instead of molding paste I used the fiber paste found in the November Mixed Media Kit. 

from my stash I used stamps, stencil, paints, ink and twine

That's all from me today. All the November Kits and Add ons can be found at the C'est Magnifique Store. Tomorrow I will be sharing what I created with the November Mixed Media Kit ;)  

Thanks so much for visiting me, have a wonderful day!

Shabby Framed Burlap Canvas

Hello Friends ...

Sharing a canvas I put together this weekend. I've been wanting to make some shabby chic flowers so when I saw this Framed Canvas I thought it would be perfect for this project. They really were so so simple and easy to do, I just abused my fingertips making them using the hot glue ... all for the love of shabbiness ;) I started out the canvas by using a prima stencil and some paste to cover the back round. I had a beautiful mess going ... shreds of fabric and lace and glue strings, gesso, paint and sandpaper good times!

Here is my Canvas

I coated the frame with gesso, painted it with some craft paint and then roughed it up to distress. I treated the Dusty Attic chipboard with gesso and paint lightly and added some lace.

Some close ups and the shabby chic flowers

Thanks so much for stopping by, hope you all are having a lovely relaxing Labor Day weekend!
