This post is doing double duty for me today. I wanted to share this amazing class I took at my LSS, Clipper Street and I wanted to create a project to show at the Frilly and Funkie Challenge - Going Round in Circles!
I love taking classes with Stacey of Stacey Wakelin Designs! We learn so many techniques and ways to use products and it is a very relaxed atmosphere. She is informative, positive, supportive and if there is something you aren't liking about your project she helps you find a way to change it. My sister and I have taken two canvas classes with her and have really enjoyed the class and spending time together!
We started with a blank canvas board and just added our colour, texture, stamped images, tissue images, more paint one layer at a time. We used the Tim Holtz Grit Paste, first time for me, and I love it!! Gorgeous texture, dries quite quickly and takes colour nicely too!
I also brought my buttons home to finish up because I love my Hammered Metal, Burnt Copper Leaves and Charred Gold embossing powder from Emerald Creek. I used those powders on all my buttons and I just love the swirly texturey look I get.

|I painted my little wooden letters to match the Dylusions Paints I used on the canvas. And I had more white space than I wanted for my paper background so I went around the piece with my Fallen Blossom stamps from Nicole Wright Designs.|
|Lovely stamped Finnabair butterfly on tissue paper and some mica flakes for shine and the fantastic Grit paste in the background too.|
Thanks for stopping by and have a really great week!
