Be Your Own Kind of You Inspirational Art

Hey there Paper Peeps! Lucky me today is my day to share the project I created specially for the matchup Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts is doing with Canvas Corp Brands.  Thank you Canvas Corp for the lovely selection of paper pretties to play with!

I was inspired by the image from the 7 gypsies Architectures Collection Ornate Frames.
To better coordinate with the flowers I colored over some of the clothing on this pretty vintage lady.
I really loved the texture from the torn out sheet from the Spiral Book so I made sure to leave a good long run of it on the side.
Matching flowers create a nice arrangement here with netting tucked in and topped off with pearly headed stick pins.
More flowers for the top. Dangling keys is a metallic finish to compliment her outfit.
This gorgeous frame is a bit of a nod to shabby chic....and helps to brighten this composition. Real vintage buttons are required here as new buttons would not have the right patina and character .
The inspiration sentiment was clipped from the packaging and the background is packaging too!
 These chippies were wiped down to prepare them for altering.
They are finished in flat white paint. The frame is now done and ready to add to my project.
The keys got a layer of antique gold embossing powder and heat set with the tool very close to get a slightly bubbly effect.

  1. Great look on the keys. the twist between shabby and chic is great. I don't think I'd want to mess with the lady. Fantastic project.
