Mini Easel & Bonus Card!

I was feeling stuck on two challenges recently.  Not that I couldn’t think of anything, but I could think of TOO MUCH!  I had so many ideas that I couldn’t narrow it down.  I finally decided to go over to my stash of “ready to alter” items and see what stuck out to me.  I had this tiny canvas on it’s easel and since I love all (okay most) things tiny, I thought up a plan!   The canvas itself measures just 3″x3″ – it’s adorable all on its own!!   I narrowed down my project to creating something for my studio.

The first challenge was to  Create a scrapbook page, card, home decor item, or other project where you include a word of your choice. One or more of the letters in your chosen word must be replaced by a Cricut shape. For example, replace the letter “o” in the word LOVE with a heart.  (Cricut Circle)

The second challenge was to Create any sort of project you would like, just make sure to incorporate somethingfrom the Letter Envy cartridge and at least two other cuts from any other cartridge. (Cricut Circle) 

Did you see the distress ink in the photo?  I used that to colour the tiny canvas before I started.  It dried pretty quick and by the time I finished cutting everything, it was ready to work with.   I used Letter Envy (as required!) for the “K,L,” and “A” and Cricut Everyday for the circle logo to act as the “O” (for the second challenge).  Art Philosophy was used to cut the flowers and the word “designs.”

Once my letters were adhered, I covered the entire thing with Mod Podge and then added my rolled up flowers.  I also added a few gems and pearls I had laying around using Liquid Glass from CTMH.  after covering the words and canvas with Mod Podge.   A quick spritz of glimmer mist and a white paint job on the easel, and this project was complete!

BONUS CARD!

This card doesn’t fit with any current challenges but I just wanted to share it anyway!  Remember the tree I installed recently?  I made this card to match!  I couldn’t believe how well the little birds in the stamp set matched the birds I put on the wall!  The tree is from Serenade (the same tree that was super-sized for the wall)

Thanks for stopping by!!
