The quote is my very own (I'm a poet and I don't know it!); simple, just like me!
2. The base of the hanging is an old mount board label shape I painted with red acrylic paint
3. The little canvas is an old fridge magnet which I painted with white gesso, then overpainted with red acrylic, then added Treasure Gold, printed words and little paper roses. I die cut the roses with my Mini Cricut then used a quilling tool to roll them, added glue to hold them and brushed with Treasure Gold. The vines were die cuts I had cut out about two years ago (Sizzix) and never used, I went around the edges of them with a dark brown Promarker to make them pop a bit. Again dusted with Treasure Gold.
4. After completing the canvas I added it to the cardboard, added that to the label shape then glued on the vines and added yet more treasure gold to the background....and the little ladybird!
5. And the day after making it I felt the roses were not big enough for a Summer Rose statement so I made this humungus rose from yellow copy paper, and spritzed it with Mr Hueys misters (red then orange to get the right shade of red) so I'm much happier with it now!
