Hello, Gypsy Soul Laser Cut fans!!! Pam here today and I am super excited to be sharing  projects throughout the month of January as a Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Guest Designer. I will be using lots of Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts on my "Amazing" Canvas along with some mixed media paints and pattern paper.
I began my "Amazing" Canvas by first laying out my pattern papers and chipboard pieces. Taking a photo helps me remember where my placements will be going as I work on my project.
I begin my giving my 8" x 8" canvas and Gypsy Laser Cuts pieces

Ink edges of canvas and all Gilded Lady pattern paper with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Adhere to dry canvas with Glossy Accent.
