Birdcage Canvas + Cards

Hello!  I hope you had a great weekend :)
 
I am stopping by tonight to share with you a canvas I made.  If you follow me on Instagram you wouldn't of seen some progress shots of this :)  Find me over on Insty @staceyyoung81
 
 
This turned out so pretty!  I would really love to start selling more canvases but everything I make, I just want to keep....lol!!!! 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Some closeups for you.  I hand drew both of the birdcages with a lead pencil first and then I went over it with a fine line pen.
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I also have some cards to share.  I created these using the Hello Love Collection by Crate Paper.

Baby Toes - PLS

Hi there! 
 
I got to have a little play over the holidays with some of the Let's Go collection from Pretty Little Studio.  I picked the colours, yellow, navy and a smidgen each of grey and turquoise to complete my layout.  I really loved the moon from the paper, New Mexico,  and new it would fit perfectly into the layout with the baby theme.  I also layered some of the clear shipping tags and frames.  I added some stencilling and mixed media to give the layout more dimension.

Shimmerz Seaside canvas

Hello!!!  This canvas was shared over on the Shimmerz blog yesterday.  
I was at our little holiday house by the beach when I created this.........hence the beachy inspiration!
 
 
 
 
Shimmerz products used:
 
Coloringz Well Blue Me Down and Don't Citron Me
Inklingz Blue Lagoon and Pugnacious Purple
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A bit of stencilling for the background and then I added the Coloringz sprays.  I sprayed some water over the top to give it a watercolour effect.  Do you spy the cute crab down the bottom....he blends into the canvas just like they do on the beach also :)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Then I started to layer on my embellishments.........
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I wanted to add a little dimension into the canvas, so I added the dark colour Pugnacious Purple to a few of the areas under the shells.
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I really hope you like my canvas piece today. 
 
This piece actually brings me to the end of my time on the Shimmerz Design Team.   I am so very thankful to the wonderful Shimmerz family for having me all of these years!  I will miss you all loads!
 
Much love xxxxx

How lucky am I to be a Mumma to these 4 beautiful boys??!!!  I count my blessings every single day for them.  They certainly are my greatest adventure.

So Special xx

When we go away for a few weeks to our holiday house, I always like to take a little stash of goodies with me.  I didn't get to play as much as what I would of liked, baby J still needs lots of attending to but I managed to sneak in a little creative time.
 
I still call Mason my baby but he is just so big now that Jagger has arrived, he is adorably sweet with his brother and is so sensitive towards him!!  They are so cute together.  This photo was taken when Jagger was about 2 weeks old....I can't believe how much he has grown since and I have so many gorgeous photos of the 2 of them together!!
 
'So Special'
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I have used lots of yummy Shimmerz and loads of Prima pretties!
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
A few diamond Chippies from Crate Paper and some cute gold words from Pretty Little Studio.
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
I love the colour palette here too, focused on the lime green, gold, cream and some mint :)
