Sooo....I got this really cool Star Wars themed paper, chipboard and brads because apparently the discontinued sad. Anyway...Ethan's bedding is Star Wars and I decided to make him some wall art. I have many canvases so I thought that I would make this cute little individual canvas pieces....turned out pretty cute! But then I thought that I would really like it to be one piece of art....soooo....I painted a 16x20 piece of canvas black and sprinkled it with Prisma glitter (kinda like the Milky Way but not really because this is another galaxy far far away) while the paint was still wet. Then I used some silver paint and just splattered the canvas with it to give a stars and orbit feel to it....okay, I put that by a fan to dry and said to myself, "self, you need to use some homemade glimmer mist just to add that little Queen of Bling touch"

So, I listened to self and spritzed the whole canvas in gold.

Next it was on to adding the smaller canvases to the large where did I put that super tacky pink tape...not to be, I had this super industrial, super strong, heavy duty adhesive....worked! This will never fall apart!!!!!

Shall We Dance

So, I got this terrific paper at By Design and got real lucky that a friend (thanks Tricia) had just given me a couple of pictures of her son and daughter-in-law dancing at their wedding.
I don't know who makes the embossed background paper (originally white) but I sprinkled some antique silver PearlEX onto it and with my fingers rubbed it in, bringing out the pattern in the paper. I tried to just fade it to the edge.
I saw the roses and pom pom flowers on the Cosmo Cricket blog. There is a video to watch to learn how to make these...mine are much smaller than hers. Just adjust it to fit what you need. I used Delish Designs Peppercorn Petites:Reverse.
The usual Stickles, MM epoxy metal frame (I punched a whole in the bottom and hung a bead), Zsa rhinestones and a House of Three bird transparency.
