I’ve had such a fun time today playing with the above items and more. I started out with a 6X6 canvas piece from Want2Scrap and covered it with Crystal Lacquer that had been mixed with Shimmer Tanzanite Terri Sproul mixer.
I thoroughly enjoyed using the lacquer and mixers. It was so beautiful when I painted it on the canvas and what was nice was that it stiffened the canvas too. I then had fun adding a peel and stick bird from Want2Scrap, and I also added some green pearls from Want2Scrap, added some rubons and stamped words, create, inspire, believe and then topped it off with a piece of ribbon roses from Want2Scrap that I had colored with a Pitt Pen. I love my Mixed Media piece! And isn’t the background wonderful? I also used the Crystal Lacquer as a glue for the bird and the rose.
I really like this! How about you? I think I may put a little hanger on it and hang it in my craft room.

I punched holes for lacing the corset on both sides. **A TIP** to get the holes the same on both sides, I laid the two sections on top of each other and punched them at the same time with my Crop-A-Dile.
Using a detail tipped applicator, I applied stripes and scallop details with a mixture of 3D Crystal Lacquer and Green Pearl Mixers.
I mix up some Shimmer Tanzanite Terri Sproul Mixers with 3D Crystal Lacquer to paint in my background. For the peek-a-boo layer, I applied a mixture of Violet Pearl Mixers and 3D Crystal Lacquer.
I hope you enjoyed today's project. Please take some time to stroll around through projects from the other Sakura Hobby Craft Design Team members for more great tips and ideas! See you next time on July 4, 2012.
