Give Thanks

 Hola friends....Among the busy hours of the weekend I had a little bit of time to create something I've been wanting to do for awhile....My first reverse canvas altered art piece.
 I wanted this to be somewhat monochromatic in nature....I love the fall colors and am so please with the outcome of this piece.  The papers are from BoBunny....just luv them!  I used my cricut and my Mothers Day bouquet cart to make the flowers...except the middle one which is from Prima....I used A Child's Year for the leaves....cut in gold and then inked with green and brown.  I had to have the Inspired Heart cart when I saw all the luvly fonts...that is where I got the Give Thanks.
 Tim Holtz's pieces accent the edge of the  frame....a swivel hook, key and keyhole....you can see a bit of the Prima bling as well....
 One of Tim's pins make the body of my butterfly cut from Sentimentals....ink, stickles and adhesive pearls finish him off.
 I also used adhesive pearls to accent the letters....
Love the way the flowers turned out.....some fiber and feathers help to finish the piece off....I plan on making a companion piece to go with this one....I feel a Ustream class coming on~

Thanx for stopping by today.....

Happy Scrappin,
