Life is full of beauty - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone!   I'm up on the Creative Embellishment blog today sharing a canvas I created using some of my favorite Creative Embellishments chipboard pieces.  My inspiration came last weekend as I sat on my front porch drinking a cup of coffee and looking out at my flower garden.  Hues of purple and pink stood out among all the flowers.  I watched the birds flying from bush to bush in my yard,  tending to their nests full of eggs.  I love this time of year, especially when the weather cooperates and brings us warm sunny days.  

I covered the canvas with  a piece of pattern paper.  I added various colors of distressed oxide inks, colored waxes and some random stamping.  Next I built up layers using some paper scraps and pieces of ephemera.  I used both pieces of  Scroll Set 3 at the base of the canvas.  I applied a couple shades of purple distressed oxide inks along with some raspberry ink.  

I love how intricate the frames are from the Square Mini Frames.  I applied a couple shades of purple distressed oxide ink to the frame and then applied some vintage silk wax.

Here you can see the Scroll Set 3 and the top of the frame from Square Mini Frames.

Beneath the flowers I placed pieces from the new Delicate Ivy chipboard.  I love how dainty the leaves are.  I inked the pieces with some dark green ink and added some vintage silk wax.

Thanks for stopping by!
