Ann Butler Designs and Cool 2 Cast Designer Blog hop

Welcome to Ann Butler Designs and Cool2Cast Designer blog hop. You should be arriving here from Carmen's Blog.




For the Hop I created a Canvas.


I used a 12 x 12 Picture Canvas I painted it with Gesso
I added paper doilies,paper cupcake wrappers, paper pieces and lace.
I glued down some gauze and used some stencils and Texture magic.
I white washed the canvas with another coat of gesso.
While it was drying I prepared my Cool2Cast pieces. The purple flowers are inked with Lilac Colorbox crafters ink.  The leaves are inked with Limelight crafters ink. The pink and the Blue flowers are painted with Ann Butler Iridescent paints in Aquamarine and Lipgloss.
Once the piece was dry I used the EZ D's 1'Rail Fence Stamp set with limelight ink.
I also added a little water to aquamarine and splattered the ink on the canvas.
I placed the picture of my Daughter's on a chevon paper and layered it on the canvas.
I placed the flower cluster on the 2 corners.

  10. Oh my gosh! You started with an absolutely beautiful family photo, and made it a treasure you can pass down to one of your kids. They will be fighting over it, you better make more of some past pictures. Cool2Cast is really cool, and you made a wonderful design using it. cdahlgren at live dot com
