LilyandtheLotus and a challenge at Words and Paintery February 2016

Welcome to my blog today. Canvas Corp Brands is a sponsor for this beautiful blog Words and Paintery.
This is a color challenge.

 This is a paper mache box my Mother had started but never finished. My Dad gave it to me recently. She had started it painted in black with gold siding. yuck!
My friends on FB Mark, Marjie.. Andy Skinner....this is for you I 
used Deco Art.
Brown.whitecloud,Williamsburg Blue and Matte Varnish
The door is a chip board from um wow studio
The roses were altered by Tattered Angels spray mist from Canvas Corp Brands the paper with the door is from 7gypsies from Canvas Corp Brands and the heart is a embellishment from Canvas Corp Brands made by 7 gypsies. The glitter is from Tim Holtz and sadly I cannot remember where I purchased the mica chips.
The sea shells are from my stash..and it was very important to use the sea shells because my Mother loved the ocean.
The sentiment is from Milton Berel "If opportunity does not knock Build a door" on the 7 Gypsies paper.

February is in the air Lily and the Lotus and Canvas Corp Brands "Beauty"

Hi and welcome to Lily and the Lotus.
I love February.
 The month of purple and aqua and love.
I was delighted with my new project "Beauty".
 I love journals of any and all kinds. I especially loved this beautiful journal from Canvas Corp Brands. It was different than any I have worked on before. It was thick brown paper like a grocery store bag and heavy and durable. That is a invitation to create for me.

I put on one of my favorite you tube songs and got started

I began with the wonderful Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist

 I sprayed and let dry and sprayed and let dry rotating the colors.
After the spray mist dried I layered with these cute little chip boa…

February Treasures from Lilyandthelotus using Canvas Corp Brands

Welcome to February creations using Canvas Corp Brands.


Canvas Corp Brands has beautiful 4x4 Canvas.My creation this month is based on giving. February is my Birthday month and I love purple.I have been given so many beautiful little gifts from friends in past groups. I am loving placing a few of them on my projects I will be sharing with you.

My 4x4 for February 2016 "Beauty"
The canvas stood blank and I had to smile when I looked at the beautiful bottle of "Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist '#02152 Fully Purple'" smiling back at me.Yes ..inspiration was stirred. I began going through all my ribbons and flowers..their color mattered not..I had Glimmer mist and was going to alter everything and anything to purple.
I used gesso last night and covered the canvas 3 times and let it dry all night it was very wet. This A.M. I began spraying with the beautiful "Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Fully Purple" and the magic began. I found some lovely purple ribbon on…

What's a girl to do...with out the love of Poe
