Krafty Kit Club Canvas Pinque Peacock

Today I am showing off one of June's Crafty Kit Club kits.
I used Summer Brights as my project.
I will be using only part of the kit and
later in the month I will be doing a tutorial
using more kit goodies.

And you can also get KIT A which is Nautical....
Add on's 

Aren't these wood veneer shapes amazing..

Today I am showcasing my project for the Krafty Kit Club for June.
This mixed media project was a new frontier for me..
I really haven't done a lot of mixed media..
I made my own texture paste but I haven't had much
success using it .. but I knew I want to make a frame from it.

I first rubbed yellow paint all over my canvas...
I modge podged the paper I got in the kit to my canvas.
Then I added the frame made from texture paste.

As soon as I made this frame I knew I wanted to add this pic of my Mom.
It's her colours and it suits this picture of her.
This is a very special picture as its one of the last ones
I have of my Mom... on a weekend when my sister Diane and I
and Mom went to Frankenmuth for the weekend together.

Hope you enjoyed my canvas frame!

I am entering this in 
Craftin Desert Divas -my favorite colour linky party
as this frame  is some of my Mom's favorite colours.
