Shabby Chic December Design Team

Lisa Hetrick here...LOVE. LOVE. LOVING the NEW PRODUCTS from Maya Road and Melissa Frances that are being featured this month in the store. Lot's of super shabby chic fun stuff to work with. And.... lots of KRAFT products to create with. You all KNOW I love my KRAFT.

This month's products inspired me to create a collage CANVAS project. Here's a pic of the whole canvas. Keeps scrolling. I took pics of all the details.

Look at all the lovely details.

The small white vintage Melissa Frances frames created a perfect home for the ATC (ART C) red beads. The KRAFT Keepsake pocket is NEW from Maya Road. The vintage inspired heart pins are NEW from Maya Road as well. Gorgeous and fun to work with. The vintage lace is from Hero Arts and the LOVE and STORY ticket embellishments are from the one and only Tim Holtz.

I sprayed the NEW Maya Road chipboard pennants with Glimmer Mist and wired them up with silver (ATC-ART C) wire and beads. PERFECTION. The Maya Road chipboard hearts come in the package of mini pennants and are all blinged out with glitter and silver paint finished off with glossy accents. Look at that super cute resin pink rose. They're NEW from Maya Road.
Have you seen the new Melissa Frances Crepe paper and Mica Flakes? Just gorgeous to work with. I die cut the flower shapes with the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die and finished it off with a red rosette from Maya Road. The mica flakes give your project a sparkly, vintage touch, easy to apply and adhere with glossy accents. There are those super cute pink resin roses again!

Did you know you can emboss with the Ranger Paint Daubers? I took the silver paint dauber, covered the outer edges of the canvas, poured on UTEE embossing powder and heat set. The perfect finish to the outer edge of the canvas and super shiny.

The base of the canvas with the photo was printed from my color printer on a piece of white copy paper. I kind of tweaked it a bit in Photoshop, printed it out and adhered it to the canvas using gel matte medium (mod podge works too), covering both sides and sealing the paper to the canvas. All of the embellishments were layered on top. How fun is this? Didn't take long and definitely a keepsake. The picture was kind of blurry when I took it, but who cares, it looks amazing on this canvas. A vintagey chic hybrid project that you definitely get your hands messy with.
