March Flamingo Four

It's time for another Flamingo Four!  This month, three other designers and I worked with these products:



          1)  4x4 canvas
          2)  6x6 paper pad - Pink Paislee "Indigo Bleu"
          3)  Wendy Vecchi Art Parts - Pocket Watch
          4)  Maya Road Acrylic People keychain

As usual, there were some tricky components in this set of items!  The 4x4 canvas makes a natural base, but its small size means that it would be very difficult to fit the other items onto it.  But a solution came to me quickly this time.  I love when that happens!  

I cut a yellow piece of the paper to just under 4x4 then dug through my stamps.  I found a Fiskars "enjoy..." stamp and a Scenic Route "TODAY" and stamped them together on the upper left hand corner of the paper.  I used matte Mod Podge to attach the paper to the canvas. While I was waiting for that to dry, I painted the pocket watch black.

 
I took apart the keychain and selected the woman.  I peeled the protective film off the acrylic, then put the acrylic back on the chain for a future use.  I put spray adhesive all over the protective film and pressed it to a sheet of type paper.  Then I fussy-cut out the shape.  I pulled out two different prints - a blue for her dress and yellow floral for her hair.  I cut the hair by using a scallop circle punch, then shifting the shape and punching the other side.

 
I layered these together and let them dry.  Then I used the Mod Podge to add a few more shapes to the canvas.  When that was dry, I turned the canvas over and attached the pocket watch.

 
Here's my finished project.  Enjoy today - an important reminder for us all.  

 
To see what the other three designers made, head over to Flamingo Scraps.  It's always so fun to see how four people can use four products with such different results!
