With the Rain Comes All Things Beautiful Blog Hop





Welcome to my stop on the With the Rain Comes All Things Beautiful Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Amy's Blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened to stop by, you might want to start at the beginning here. Be sure to thank scraps2treasure for hosting this great hop. I hope you enjoy my project and if you would like a chance at my blog candy leave me a comment letting me know you have become a follower. If you are already a follower just leave me a comment for your chance. Now on to the project... I made this altered spring canvas for a swap I'm in on the Cricut message board. I hope you enjoy!
Purple is my favorite color, but not one I create with very often.
I included my first ever stick pin that I have made. The large flowers are some of my favorites to make. They are used dryer sheets. You simply cut four circles out of a used dryer sheet and fasten with a brad in the middle. Then spray with the glimmer mist of your choice. These are made with popsicle and cosmo.
I added a few fussy cut flowers.
A better look at the stickpin.
Now that you have seen what I made and the blog candy waiting for a new home, head on over to Jessica's Blog for yout next stop.

LOVE the idea of used dryer sheets ... I'm always looking to up-cycle stuff around the house, especially the stuff that's free. Now can you do something as spectacular with dryer lint?? I have PLENTY of that! I've not sprayed anything with glimmer mist yet either, so thank you for that inspiration. Another thing to try!!!
