Metal and canvas

Another week without posting - my apologies! It was a busy week of classes and then I went away for the weekend to attend my daughter's bridal shower. And it doesn't look like it will slow down any time soon!

I've been meaning to post this project from a "Hot Metal Mamas" class. It is held at Ten Seconds Studio but taught by Tracy from Create Joy. She sends us a list of supplies to bring and we also get to use the tools and metal at Ten Seconds. The project is always a mystery.

This month's project was a canvas, combining embossed metal and papers. I used my favorite Graphic 45 Fashionista papers along with red metal and the new Brrr Blue metal frm Ten Seconds. The canvas was first painted with a sandy-colored paint. The red metal was embossed with one of the new Kabuka molds and the blue metal was embossed with a new Stampin Up texture plate using the Cuttlebug. The butterfly is a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I just added a mat of dark blue cardstock as I haven't decided which photo to add. This was a fun and simple project - I can see it in so many color and pattern combinations - a great alternative to an expensive frame.
