Treasured – Canvas for Creative Embellishments/Heartfelt Creations cross promo

Creative Embellishments and Heartfelt Creations have teamed up once again, so our team got to play around with some wonderful HFC products! I chose the Italiana Riviera Paper Collection to work with. It features gorgeous imagery, lovely purple and green colors with some neutrals and a whole grape and wine theme. For my project, I started by coating my canvas board with black gesso. Once that dried, I sprayed some webbing primarily onto the top and down the center. It only takes about 5 mins to dry, but it’s best to wait an hour before handling. So while I waited for that to dry, I altered my CE Grapevine pieces using gesso, PITT markers, and a Lindy’s Stamp Gang color shot. I also fussy cut tags, a ticket, and some images from the HFC papers. Using the CE Crackled Brick Stencil and some opaque modeling paste, I added the brick details on the background. I then used 2 different Lindy’s magicals and the same color shot I used to alter my chippies to add color and details to the brick pattern once it dried. I then layered, a couple of doilies, flower pieces, and embellishments with the fussy cut papers, tags, and ticket. Last, I adhered the grapevine pieces I’d altered, and cut up one of the flourishes from set 26 that I’d altered using white acrylic paint, and tucked those bits into the cluster. Here’s how my project turned out:

Creative Embellishments/Heartfelt Creations team up!

I’m a huge fan of Heartfelt Creations’ products. I love their stamps and dies, but more than anything, I LOVE their gorgeous papers, so I was thrilled when I heard about the team up between two such amazing companies! I got to work with HFC’s Once Upon a Time Papersand Celebrate the Journey Papers. Since two other team members used Celebrate the Journey, I primarily used Once Upon a Time for my project along with a few scraps from other HFC papers I already had on hand. This is going to be photo heavy because it’s a paper bag mini album (my first!), using 3 full sized paper lunch bags.

For the cover, I also used these products by Creative Embellishments which I altered by using Smooch inks: Steampunk Timepiece from their 3 piece mini set, a Butterfly from their 3 piece set, Flourish 17 and Photo or Page Corners Set 2. Distressed edges on the papers are inked with Distress Ink and the trims are by Graphic 45 and My Mind’s Eye. I also used the other corner pieces from the set as holders for tags inside the album. :-D
