I was so happy to be given this opportunity and equally happy to be working with such a wonderfully talented group of ladies. Here is my first project.
Back at CHA (Craft Hobby Association) Super Show in January I was so lucky to get in on a wonderful traveling Make N Take on opening day sponsored by American Crafts, Heidi Swapp, Bazzill Basics Paper, and a few other marvelous companies. I was given this canvas album, complete with page inserts, and lots of embellies to decorate it. It has been sitting on my shelf mocking me since then because I have not been able to decide what to do with it.
As soon as I received my letters from Joy this album came to mind. Perfect for the Princess, yes? The album came with the silver star on the front. Who doesn't need more silver sequins in their lives? It is a little hard to see but I gave the background on the left side a spray of Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Gold for a little contrast on the canvas.
To dye my letters, which came a bright white, I used ColorBox Spritzers Ink diluted with a little water. I mixed the ink/water on my craft mat and pushed the letters around in the solution for a bit, then dried with my heat gun.
The super cute little stars are also from Joy and dyed using the same technique. I added ribbon from Decorative Trimmings and Maya Road, a few flowers, and buttons from Buttons Galore and More.
