Basketball is life

Hi Everyone

I created this canvas with a camera and a picture frame attached for an application to the Lindy's Stamp Gang Design Team a little while back and I've only just gotten around to adding it to my blog 

If you can't tell I love Magical's they are awesome LOL 

The Memory Maze chipboard I used was Attitude in a circle and Square Mesh Grunge

This photo of my son was taken by a friend at our local basketball courts 
Jack eat, sleeps and lives for his basketball

I started off with an old camera that was going in the bin of course I had to save it
I glued lots of different paper clay shapes over the camera then gessoed the whole thing
The frame was given to me in a box of mixed frames that someone was getting rid of I painted that with black gesso
The canvas was one I had done a SHE ART project on, it was sitting in the cupboard collecting dust so this project 
is made up of recycled stuff

I started off with an old camera that was going in the bin of course I had to save it
I glued lots of different paper clay shapes over the camera then gessoed the whole thing

 I used -  red hot poker orange and cattail copper brown from the Autumn Leaves Settweedle dee denim from the Mad Hatter Set, bachelor button blue from the Prairie Wildflower Set, steampunk sepia and steel shimmer from the Industrial Chic Set and the clam bake beige from the Nantucket Pearls Set on the camera, all the embellishments and the background of the canvas
I wanted to have some string to my canvas so I added some water to the string then used the steel shimmer from the Industrial Chic Set to cover it completely then set it aside to dry
As you can see I used lots of different products from metal to chipboard  from Memory Maze and the Magical's show up awesome on all 
different textures and mediums
I love how it went into the cracks that I created with some crackle paste
The canvas also had lace and other bits already glued down so when I sprayed the powders they spread so nicely into all the 
crevasses and show up all the details

I also used Bavarian Blue Embossing Powder on the frame and the camera
On the camera I sprinkled the powder onto the wet gesso, it gives it a more mottled look 
On the frame I used some versamark and a texture stamp so there was a bit of dimension to it

Products I used-

Square Mesh Grunge Chipboard

Thank you for visiting and I hope you will be back soon xxx

    I feel so blessed and fulfilled. I've been reluctant in applying for a loan i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got a loan from Progresive Loan INC. & we both confirmed it and i also went ahead to apply, today am a proud owner of my company and making money for my family and a happy mom. Well i'm Annie Joe by name from Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. As a single mom with three kids it was hard to get a job that could take care of me and my kids and I had so much bills to pay and to make it worst I had bad credit so i couldn't obtain a loan from any bank. I had an ideal to start a business as an hair stylist but had no capital to start, Tried all type of banks but didn't work out until I was referred by my co-worker to a godsent lender advertising to give a loan at 2% interest rate. I sent them a mail using their official email address (progresiveloan@yahoo.com) and I got a reply immediately and my loan was approved, and I was directed to the Bank site where I withdrawed my loan directly to my account. To cut the story short am proud of my hair stylist company and promise to testify to the world how my life was transformed.. If you are in need of any kind of loan, i advise you contact Progresive Loan INC and be financially lifted Email: progresiveloan@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565
