Girls, girls, girls!

Hi all!

Ingrid here today with three projects.
I made a canvas with a photo of me for a change!
Also made two small gifts for my girls.

Painted, stamped and gessoed the background.
Mixed the gesso with some sand for a great texture.
That gorgeous window and shutters from Imaginarium Designs got a coat with some gesso first.
Inked the edges with fluid chalk ink.
The inside of the window frame was painted with some puffy paint.
The other ID chipboards (the numbers and butterflies) were inked with a bit darker color for contrast.

Window and Shutters in board (large) IDS0058

4 Small Butterflies IDT0014

Numbers IDN0001

Other products used:
Papers: Maja Design, Vintage Spring Basics.
Acrylic paints, puffy paint, gesso, sand, prima fluid chalk ink, prima resin, prima flowers,
petaloo flowers, cheese cloth, 13arts twigs, 13arts two tone mini flowers, fiber.

And here are the two mini projects for my girls:

If even a day should go by
when I didn't say I love you,
may never a moment go by
without you knowing I do!

Made this one for Tessa, my oldest girl.
Used two canvases(one reversed), 4x4inch/10x10cm.
The hinge is from my stash and comes from an old cabinet.
The metal chain is a piece of a necklace.

Other products used:
acrylic paints, 13arts gesso, prima flowers, 13arts flowers, cheesecloth, buttons.
Cut up a Imaginarium Designs frame, IDDL0007

This one is for my youngest girl, Yiscka.
Had these wooden panels in my stash for a while.
They are the same measurements as the two canvases above.

Products used:
acrylic paints, 13arts gesso, prima flowers, 13arts flowers, 13arts twigs, metal charms.
Combined two chipboards from Imaginarium Design on the right corner,
a frame, IDT0006 and the flourish, IDT0003

Enjoy your day!!
