Last project for Ten Second Studios Guest Designer

Today is my last Wednesday project as the Ten Seconds Studio Guest Designer for the month of April.  I have really enjoyed using the Ten Seconds Studio products in creating these projects and look forward to using them in the futures.  Thank you Cheryl and Megan for sharing this awesome product and allowing me to have these fun times with the VerDay!

My  project is a canvas that I made using some of the flowers that from last weeks project.  I once again chose Graphic 45 papers and built my canvas around those and embellished with Tim Holtz Ideology products.  I apologize for the quality of the photographs but  I couldn’t seem to get the lighting right to get the flowers the more copper color without washing out everything. They just had to be red for some reason so everything is warmer!  I took this one outside and it seems to be better then most and you can still see the variance in the pink to red in the flowers in this picture!  The real color is similar to the light pinkish coral on the bottom bud.  Any suggestions?

The canvas is an 8"x8” natural colored canvas covered with paper from the 'Once Upon a Springtime' collection from Graphic 45.  I love the postcard and vintage feel of the paper and it fit well with my theme of a life journey.  

Another picture of the metal/paper flowers that I stacked on top of some paper flowers that I sprayed a peachy color to match up with the copper and brass I used.  I love the way each metal picks up a different hue when the patina oxidizes the metal. 

Check out this green of the copper butterflies and the pink of the it.  I told my daughter I had so many different greens and different metals on this piece but I really think it works out okay!
