happy, happy, happy!

Hi friends! I have a new project to share today that I made for the Paper Bakery, using the September Scrapbooking kit. It sure was fun to make and was so easy to put together too!
To start, I tore the “Wild & Free Arrows” patterned paper by Glitz Designs into small pieces, and glued them to a 5x7 canvas.  I let the edges overlap to give it a bit of texture.
After the whole canvas was covered with the torn paper, I added the alphabet letter stickers from my stash to spell out happy, happy, happy. (This is a great way to use left over letters!) Next I brushed on a light coat of white paint, letting some of the paper show through.
After the paint had dried, I spritzed it with a bit of gold mist (I used Heidi Swapp’s Gold) Again, just a light coat so the colors in the paper will still show through.
After the mist had dried, I removed the alphabet stickers, added a few sequins and the die cut feather.
I really, really love how this turned out, and am already thinking of making a few of these using Christmas patterned paper. Or how about one for birthday d├ęcor? As always, so many ideas, so little time  ha-ha!

Thanks for stopping by,
Mary Ann
