 and this yummy pack of brads from american crafts

I have a 3 year old daughter who is very very active and every weekend we make it a point to take her out :) There isn't much to do here in hyderabad in terms of going out, but a couple of malls have very nice children play areas :) The picture i'm using is one of my favourite ones of all three of us from one of these weekend outings :)

Its a mixed media canvas :) loads of layers and embellishments :) I will be sharing a tutorial soon of the background i created :) 

To create it, I layered the canvas with a coat of gesso and then once dry, used my stencils and modelling paste to give the raised effect. once dry, i coated it with gesso once again and then sprayed away with LINDY'S!!! this product is the bestest!!! i absolutely adore it and love love the colours and shimmers they have!!!

some closeups of the canvas :)

Those buttons are a gift from my husband's 90-year old grandmother who had saved them up to give to someone who loved sewing as much as her! (i guess i came closest with my love of crafting!! :)

My botanical odyssey paper pad was best fitting to this and i have used it almost everywhere on the canvas.

Yes i am very much in love with my mod molds!!! :P ive been using them in almost every project. there are so many designs and also i switch between clay and the glue stick depending on where i want to use them :)

Yes, i do love my sweet husband and my darling lil girl :)

Thats all from me for today! :) We hope you play along :) Ill be back with a tute on creating gorgeous backgrounds with Lindys! :)

Thank you for all the appreciation of my work, it inspires me to create more! :) Leave us some love :)
