Welcome to the Pink Paislee Inspriation Tour!!

Welcome to the Pink Paislee Inspiration tour in honour of Mother's Day. We have lots of ideas for making a mother's day present or a present for anyone in you life. Pink Paislee has generously offered up a prize package (shown above) to one lucky commenter on each blog so take the time to visit the DT blogs and leave comment on each one. You have all weekend to leave a comment and a winner's name from each blog will be drawn on Monday, May 3.


A grandchild is a gift

I created an altered wall canvas for my project. (yes, a gift for my Mama) It is something that I have always wanted to try but just didn't seem to get it done so I was happy for the incentive to create this. I used a cheap canvas (12"x16") from the dollar store that had a bit of a smooth finish to it. The coating on the canvas worked out great in my favour as I was able to smoosh around mist after I sprayed it on to achieve the look I was going for. I am going to give you step by step instructions so that you can recreate this project. My fellow DT members have done the same on their blogs so that you can replicate any of the projects on the tour!


1) Spray Glimmer Mist and Maya Mist on background. Use a sponge or paper towel to blend the mist colours and smooth/smoosh the ink around. I used red and pink mists.

2) Cut the top 3.5" off the Porch Swing die cut from the Bayberry Collection and adhere the die cut to the right hand side of the altered canvas. I found that my regular adhesive did not adhere the paper to the canvas very well so I used my trusty hot glue gun!

3) Add two 3"x4.25" photos to the bottom right of the die cut.

4) Underneath the photo, layer artisan tape, clear border stickers and pleated ribbon . I used dimensional glitter paint to put a dot in each section of the pleated ribbon.

5) Adhere flowers to the bottom left of the photos. Add three pieces of cork which are slightly tucked under the flowers.

6) Add press ons to the left of the flowers. I set a book under the canvas so it was easier to adhere the rub on. This stopped the canvas from stretching when I pressed on it.

7) Cut a flourish from Bayberry Cottage Flower Garden and adhere it above the flowers. I added Stickles glitter glue to the flourish (Diamond & Onyx).

8) Add title to the top of the die cut. I used Expressions glitter alphabets. I also used a Heidi Swapp clear clock die cut under the title.

9) Add three pieces of cork to the upper right hand corner of the photos.

10) Wrap it up and give it to your Mother with a hand made card :)
