Most projects on this blog are my own ideas. You may use them for personal and non-commercial use only; however, you cannot publish, use them for submissions to contests, or make a profit off my work. If projects are not based on my original idea, I will try my best to direct you to the creator or where the idea originated from. Thanks so much for your cooperation and I hope that you find lots of inspiration here.
The challenge is to incorporate gray in a unique way into a project. I knew that I wanted to use the colors pink and gray, because I love this combination. I used the Home Decor Cricut Cartridge for my cuts on this.
I started out with a white canvas that is size 14x14. I used a ruler to mark off four 7inch squares around the canvas.
I then used Folk Art Acrylic paint to cover the canvas. The colors I used were: Baby Pink and Gunmetal Gray.
Next, I cut two small chandalier cuts in a white glitter cardstock with a gray shadow from the Home Decor Cricut Cartridge. I glued these into the pink squares on the canvas.
Next, I cut a large chandalier in gray with a pink blackout cut for the background. I wanted this to stand up off the canvas, so I used pop dots and layered them on top of each other three high to get the height I was looking for.
Next, I used glue dots to attach pearls in two different sizes to the chandalier for some extra embellishment. These were not flat back pearls, they are the regular pearls that I bought from the jewelry section for the bracelets I made and they worked out well for this.
Here is a side view so you can see the dimension better.
