First, I pulled a variety of pages out of a magazine. I had an idea in my head so every page I grabbed worked together by color, leaning towards blues and greens (imagine that!).
I grabbed some all-purpose glue and began cutting my pages into pieces filling in an 11x14 canvas in a "fan" type shape, leaving the center open (it'll get covered in the next phase of the project).
Phase 2..... Using www.canva.com I created a list of things I love about mom and printed it off using a variety of fonts.
I then cut them out and attached them onto my canvas, with a heart paper doily in the center.
I decided I didn't like the heart being so stark so I tried my hand at shaving cream marbling. If you've not tried it, you should. Such a fun little side project. I gathered my supplies; shaving cream, food coloring, something to spread out the shaving cream on and with and a scraper of some sort.
Here's my shaving cream. I used a box lid and spread it out with the wooden paint stick you see above. I added food coloring drop by drop haphazardly and spread it out again.
My paper doily went face down into the shaving cream. I used my fingers to press it into the mixture and yes, they were blue for a while.
I carefully pulled it out, remember its wet paper, and used a tin lid to scrape any excess off then laid it aside to dry.
Really love how it turned out.
Buttons were applied to the middle of the heart.
Nearly done.... I want to apply a few more buttons to accentuate the shape of the heart and add some decorative ribbon around the outer edge of the canvas. I've chosen a couple but have yet to get it done.
