Been Having Fun With My Cricut!

Been Playing and Having Fun with my Cricut!

Have stuff everywhere as usual and as always still looking for that 'just right' embellishment.  This week though it's that 'just right' lace.  With all of the lace and ribbon I have, I can't believe I can't find what I want for this project.   I know I will and when I find it I will re-post my 'finished' project.

So first I used the Summer In Paris cartridge, which is one of my favorites apparently since I use it a lot.  I used the negative of the dress forms that I cut and did send it through the Xyron to make it stick down.   I used  Tattered Angles Sand and sprayed the image onto the 8x8 canvas  I did put paper around the edges of the negative dress forms so I wouldn't get a square from over spray.  I love the Canvas Corp canvas', they're awesome and so much fun.  

Here is a picture of the negative dress forms that I used in case you don't have any idea what I'm talking about!  I am horrible at trying to explain what I'm talking about and usually just confuse people.  lol

I did rotate the one on the far right so it wasn't facing the same way as the other one on the left.  I used my Cricut Expressions 2 and just love it!! 

Here is the almost finished project I made.  For the flowers and the frames I used the Art Philosophy cartridge from CTMH, another one of my favorite cartridges.  I have fun making the flowers, I have the all over in different colors and shapes.

After I was done placing everything where I was happy with it, I re-sprayed the whole canvas with Sand again.  Once I find the perfect lace, I may also ink the edges of the canvas.

If you couldn't tell, I'm a total bling and bows kind of crafter and usually throw in a couple buttons for good measure.  

Well have a great rest of the week and talk to you again soon!!

What a great way to use the negative cut! I love the final project. I am always wanting to do a canvas and then I chicken out. One day I just have to make myself!
