Okay, so I have been on a mini vacation since Wed. at noon because Cristian's school's teachers go on a conference and so there is no school for them. So super happy about that! I get to spend more time with my munchkins and I get to play more in my scraproom with less interruptions.
And so I decided to start the whole canvas again. Remember the Jennifer McGuire class I won thru Nichol's blog? Well, I decided to do it and finish it. I started from the 1st heart again and I finished it within 8 hours. I did follow Teri's tip to make everything out of 3x3 first and then run everything thru the Silhouette. Each of the hearts is a different technique. I played with tons of inks, perfect pearls, stamps, watercolor paper, canvas, felt, acetate, metal, paints, dies, dry & heat embossing, etc... I mean, it was just amazing. My fingers/nails are completely blue from all the different medias. I just had a great time!!!

Here are some pics I took while in the process, this is a resist with perfect pearls and distress ink. Really cool effect.

KEEP THE CRAFT SHEET CLEAN :)
If you are not careful your acetate can curl while you are heat embossing it. This was the LAST one I had from Hero Arts but I have a box of 125 transparencies that they sell at Office Depot and it worked great.
|THIS WAS HALF WAY THRU THE PROJECT. ITS A LOT|
WORSE NOW :(
This was definitely the best part because all of the techniques had been done on a 3x3 canvas/watercolor paper/Neenah white CS or glossy paper and all I had to do was cut the hearts on my Silhouette.
And VOILA! Isn't just beautiful!!! I was really impressed with the class, PDF's & videos. Everything came out exactly as she said it would. She (Jennifer McGuire) is just amazing!!!
I am going to put this one in my scraproom but I am creating one for Mia's room with butterflies instead of hearts andI am thinking of using Dear Lizzie fabric paper on all the butterflies.
Hope you like it!!!! Have a great weekend!!!!
