New Month, New Sponsor, New Projects!

Well, January is over.  What a wonderful first month using Graphic 45!  It was so much fun!

Now cheers to a new February!  And welcome to a new sponsor...Sherri Baldy Stamps!  She makes some amazingly beautiful digital stamps!  You must check it out!

I would like to introduce to you my first project!  I picked a digi stamp that was already colored to start with.  I've never worked with digi stamps before.  This is a new experience for me.  And let me tell you....I love them!

This digi is called Marie In Blue.   When I saw it, I immediately thought canvas mixed media!  There was just no other choice for this gorgeous design!  I used some blue and green paint on the canvas first.  Then I sprayed some blue and green sprays on it.  I glued some book paper onto the back of the picture then tore it down a few inches.  Attached eyelets then thread ribbon through to simulate a corset.  I then glued the picture down onto the canvas with some mod podge.  I took some cheesecloth, cut it into strips, sprayed it with a blue color, and glued it onto the canvas around the picture to hide and soften the straight edges.  I sprayed some medium white roses with pink spray to coordinate with the digi colors.  I added some large roses that I already had, and a couple of green leaves.  I stamped some flourishes around the edges of the canvas.  I also added some pearl beads, and a few small red roses to add some different color.  I used red stickles on the birds.  I had some dolly curls that my Mom-in-law had given me.  I didn't think I would ever use them, but they were perfect for this, for her hair!  Then to make her more regal, I added a resin crown on her head with some clear stickles to add a bit of sparkle.   

Yes, she is very sassy, isn't she?  I thought this was just the perfect saying to put on this canvas.

Here's the beautiful large flowers!

Ahhhhh....what a lovely regal lady!  I just love how these curls just fit her perfectly!

I added red stickles to these cute little birdies.  It just made them pop off the page!

I added some jewellry to her.  Well, she already had some, but I made it 3D by adding some pearly bling!  And here's a close up of one of the medium roses I sprayed.

I just loved the way the corset turned out!  I added a piece of doily behind it to look like lacy lingerie!

Love those curls!

I hope you enjoyed my first digi project.  I sure did!  Leave me some comments to tell me what you thought of it!  And if you haven't visited Sherri's so now!  You will fall in love with these, too!  :)
