New Release Blog Hop - Altered Canvas

Welcome to the new release blog hop at 3 Girl JAM.  I am so happy to be sharing these new colors today.  If you hopped over from Carri, you are in the right spot.  If you just happened on to my blog today, be sure to head over to see Julie's post here.

Now on to my project for today.  I decided that I wanted to alter a canvas.  Though this is not the first canvas that I have altered, it is unlike anything that I have attempted.  I must say that it was quite enjoyable to make and wasn't difficult at all.  My favorite color of all of the new colors is without a doubt Purple Passion.  I decided that I would keep this project for myself.

Besides Purple Passion, I also used a lot of other supplies:
Canvas board
Faber Castell Gelatos
Prima - Mixed Media Doll by Julie Nutting
Tim Holtz - Black Soot Distress Ink, Old Paper and Dusty Concord Distress Markers, Heartfelt stamp set, Milled Lavender Distress Stickles
Studio G - glitter glue
Zig Pure Brown marker
Ranger Jet Black Archival ink
Momento London Fog ink
White gel pen
Micron black pen
K. Andrew Designs - Scripture Sayings stamp set
Want2Scrap bling
Recollections leaves
Petaloo - feathers
Spare Parts flowers (from Hobby Lobby)

How about a video?

Just in case you get lost on the way through the hop, here is the line up.  Just click on each name to see the projects.

ScrappinAnn said...

You are amazing! I loved watching your video. It was so easy to follow and you narrate very nicely.

I have heard about gelatos but haven't seen them in use. I like them :) and the purple is one of my favorite colors. I like the idea behind your scripture quote and why you are keeping it. I definitely understand the changing seasons and can relate.

thanks for being so inspiring!
God Bless you.
