I grabbed some white 140lbs cardstock and sprayed Grab a Guy Gold Starburst Spray, Whale Watch Blue Starburst Spray, & A Bit of Bubbly Starburst Spray, thru a stencil and created this beautiful background for my layout. I also used Geranium Coral Blush embossing powder and embossed this amazing wood doily piece with it!

Gelli Plate Altered Canvas {LSG Color Challenge}

 It's that time again! We are having a Color Challenge over at Lindy's Stamp Gang! 
I created this beautiful 4X4" mini canvas using these fabulous colors that match our color challenge colors. The colors I used were: Frenchy's Pink Pouf FF, Heliotrope Purple Plum ST, Tweedle Dee Denim FF, Down the Rabbit Hole ST, & Greased Lightenin' Green FF. 
I used my 8" circle Gelli Plate to create a color pallet and then cut them into strips. Please take a quick look at the video bellow for more info on how I put it together.

Spring Banner {IAR March Challenge}

Hi everyone hope you all are doing well! Today I want to share this cute Spring home decor banner I created using my fabulous I Am Roses! For our March Challenge we were asked to pick two colors and incorporate our flowers into a a special creation just for you! I chose Teal and white {my favorite colors} and added them into this banner.
I used some vintage lace to back the rosette flowers that i made from a My Minds Eye paper pad. I also used a TH Vintage Market Dye to cut out my letters and then sprayed 
them with some Lindy's Stamp Gang spray in Gossamer Gold and I also added some brown and white bakers twine in between each banner as an added touch.
