Taylored Expressions April Sneak Peeks: Day 3 - Home Decor Day

Hello everyone...welcome to day 3 of the Taylored Expressions April Sneak Peeks!!! We have something special for you's Home Decor Day!!! We have all created  projects with home decor items from the Taylored Expressions cool is that!!!! I used the adorable little Mini Canvas and Easel...this was the most fun project ever!!!! 

Taylored Expressions is celebrating Release Week with some fabulous giveaways! Visit the Taylored Expressions Blog each Sneak Peek Day this week for details on how you can enter to win. 

The canvas was painted with white acrylic paint and dried over night. Then pool party and barely banana inks were sponged on the background. The basket image was stamped on the canvas with Memento Tuxedo Black and again on a piece of Choice Snow White card stock. The card stock image was colored with Copics and cutout eliminating the knitting needles, string of yarn on the right, and the ball of yarn on the left. The knitting needles, string of yarn, and the ball of yarn were all colored on the canvas with Copics and the basket was adhered to the canvas. The shadow area under the basket was colored with gray Copics. 

To finish it off, ribbon was adhered around the edge of the canvas and the bow was created with the Taylored Expressions Mini Mix and Match Bows die. It was adhered to the top of the canvas and an enamel dot was added.  

My card features the beautiful image from the When Your Heart Speaks was colored with Copics on Choice Snow White and enamel dots were added to the flower centers. A light yellow Copic was used to color the background.

The hummer from the Wherever You Go set was stamped with wild wasabi, cut out with the Hovering By die and popped up with foam tape. The scallop was cut with the TE Medium Scallop Border and sewing was done around the edges.  The hemp cording and washi tape finishes it off. 

Now, let's take a look at what the Baker's Dozen DT has created for you today...check it out!!
