French Flea Market Shabby Inspired Canvas-Brief How To

Hi Everybody!
So happy to be back crafting and blogging,
after dealing with food poisoning last week.
Needless to say, it will be a very long time before I will eat taco's, home cooked or elsewhere.

Anyways, I wanted to share with you
a French Flea Market Shabby Inspired
5x5 Canvas Panel.

With minimal supplies,
here is a brief how to, so you can create one too.

I love these canvas panels, and Hobby Lobby actually 
sales them in packs of 5, in various sizes.

 I used my trusty fave, Mod Podge to adhere
the base patterned paper, and added
layers with paper doilies, and the addition of 
paper with a bird on a doily banner.

I used 11gauge silver wire, threaded through eyelets
that were screwed into the panel (and secured with a dollop of glue) and then twisted with
some baker's twine colored teal & white.

I stayed with using the same colors in flowers, that were on the patterned paper, hues of soft teal, pink & ivory.

I added pearlized sequins randomly on the patterned paper, 
used flat back pearls to the centers of each flower, and finished by gluing vintage cotton lace to the bottom, and added a coordinating sequin time & twine to finish the look.

Entire project took about hour or so, and is a little 
piece of cheer to add delight anywhere.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
I hope you will visit again soon,
until then.....

A Brief Hiatus...Food Poisoning Re-Cooperation

Hi everyone.
I wanted to stop by 
and apologize
for lack of crafty postings this week.

On Monday evening, after preparing dinner for my
husband & myself, a few short hours later
we both became violently ill.

Apparently either our just purchased ground beef or refried beans, were bad. Tasted fine. 
But apparently one or the other was bad.

We suffered from food poisoning.
Today has been the first day we really have felt better.
Still on a diet of bland food, popsicles & Gatorade,
but should be in the clear by tomorrow evening.

Stop back again soon, I will be sharing links
to The Robin's Nest, were Saturday, 
I will be sharing my latest design team project.
It's an easy one, with delightful results.
Hope you will "tune" in.

Until then.....
Crafty Blessings!
