Maybe as a stay at home mom I shouldn't feel like today is different than any other day of the week, but my "working out of the home" brain prior to having babies still relishes Friday's. It's been a LONG week compounded by sleepless nights, napless toddler days, and baking disaster after baking disaster (perhaps I should just stick to card making). Anyhow, here we are finally at the end of the week and I have a special project to share!
This is the first of two 3D projects I was required to make for my entry into the Artisan Award contest. I can say that deciding what to enter was a bit of a challenge; simply because I live in the "sticks" in small town Canada and everything had to be mailed to Riverton, Utah USA! If I had chose to send large projects the cost of shipping would have broke the bank LOL!
So I thought I'd try my hand at making a little jewelry (read: light to mail); inspiration coming from the Canvas Creations sheets that were launched in the Spring Catalog. I began by opening two of my favorite photos in MDS; one of my youngest playing in the leaves last fall and one of my oldest with my Grandmother taken just before she fell ill with cancer. I changed both photos from color to Sepia then printed them onto the canvas sheet. From there I carefully aligned each photo onto the Autumn Accents die and ran it through the Big Shot. I cut an extra of each leaf from plain canvas and glued the two layers together with Tombow to make each piece a little sturdier. For the necklace I added an eyelet and laced a cord through; for the smaller leaf I added a brooch pin to the back with hot glue.
