Find Your Inner Artist

Using 1 sheet of Tilda paper, I was inspired to make this very girly canvas. Prima resin is especially girly so that settled the theme.

I used paper doilies in pink and white for 2 edges and some lace and pleated tulle

The corner is Chipboard from Southern Ridge Trading Company and I frantaged it in Shabby Pink

I used Tim Holtz Melange and pleated it to make my cone shape and for the inside of the frame.

I have a piece of wedding appliqué glued to the side thanks to my by Cathy-Lynn

Close up of the main focus and the words of inspiration.  Those are liquid pearls around the waist on the dress form.

The angles of dimension

I will probably give this one to the school to auction but it will be hard to let it go. lol

Thank you for your sweet comments and visiting my blog, I really appreciate it!
Hugs, Kelly
