Kyoko a Mixed Collage Canvas


I had great fun putting this canvas together. It has lots of bits and pieces that I have worked on throughout the last through years. First of all, I used the Kyoko" paper doll from Julie Nutting's book "Collage Couture Studio Paper Dolls." I printed and cut her out. I used some origami paper for her clothing, I traced the lines from that book. I popped her up with soft pads on the back.

I applied the background scrapbook sheet to the canvas with Mod Podge. the various background cuts and pieces were cut with my Cricut and Cuttlebug Machines and I used an old pattern to cut the kimono by hand. The sentiment came from a piece of Graphic 45 scrapbook paper.

The canvas is sealed with a layer of Mod Podge over most of the areas.

Come again, I love making designer canvases!

Copic Rose Card

https://sellfy.com/p/U6xq/

http://www.artstampsstore.com/
The new challenge at Crafting from the Heart is just for fun. This is my first attempt at using Copic Markers on a Rose (Fl 1) by Morgan's Artworld.

Here are the markers I used:
R22, R24, R27
G09, YG17

The finished colored image was adhered to a light red base card and frames cut on the Cricut Cutting Machine were adhered overlapping at an angle giving the front of the card a kaleidoscope effect.

I finished off this card using 3 adhesive pearls in graduated sizes.

I'm looking forward to see your entries in our challenge at Crafting from the Heart.
