Janie- LeAnns World 101

Hi Everyone, here is a little inspiration for you, I am using the image called Janie for my card, isn't she darling. You can find her in the etsy shop here: Janie. I have colored her with Copic Markers and then cut her out with a paper trimmer and backed her onto a piece of Turquoise card stock. I have added a piece of designer paper and a piece of white paper which I inked the one side of before embossing so that the banners in the design popped with color.  One of the new cheap embellishments these days for cards is cut down straws, which I have added and tied with a ribbon, and then added a flower to the center knot of the ribbon. I also used a stamp for the greeting.

Besties Canvas

Hi Everyone, here to share a canvas project I have made. I started with the image which I have colored in Copic markers
Skin: E04,11,21,00,000 R22,20
Hair YR 27,24, Y21
Boots and Owl grey areas: C7,5,3,1

Feathers, bow hearts, R59,56, RV34,R81
Leaves YG67, 25,
Owl eyes YR23,21
Glass of Glasses B01,000

After coloring her up I fussy cut her out and decided to make a canvas project with her
I started off with a 9 by 7 inch white canvas board I got from the dollar store
I added some texture to it by stenciling all over using modeling paste and letting it set to dry. 
I then decided to use my spray inks to color the canvas, I used a lilac, aqua and wanted some green but only had a light green so I made my own by using an ink refill and some alcohol in a spritzer
works wonders. so did the green this is how the canvas background turned out. 

I then cut out a frame for my image out of watercolor paper, I added some ground espresso distress ink to it, and then watered it down for the color to go all over, then did it again to get full coverage. 
I decided It didn't look old or like metal so I added some taupe frantage to it and then some gold embossing powder in spots and then heat set and then went over it a bit with the ground espresso, this is the frame and how it turned out

I placed it on the canvas
and then added some other stuff to the canvas to see how it would look 
I was liking the layout but the chain was silver and so was a couple of the gears, so I used some gold embossing powder on them and heat set to turn them gold
I then let it set a while as gold elements on the canvas and decided I wanted a bit more of the pink so I took everything off the canvas again and added some pink spray to it, just a touch in the center area
I then put all back on the canvas and was pleased with the effect with the exception of the white areas around the image, so I took my Cool Grey 1 marker and went over those areas and added some more color to the glass of the glasses  as well. I then used some Gel medium to attach all to the canvas 
This is the final result of the canvas

Thanks for stopping by
