Shopping List

Happy Monday! I am home from my fantastic weekend in Toronto....boy was it full and fun!
Thank you to all the ladies who made my weekend so enjoyable.

Back to home life realities and one of them is grocery shopping....today's project is a cute little item I made for my kitchen for grocery lists. It is being featured today on the Melissa Frances Blog!
This is made from Melissa Frances goodies in their Kitschy Kitchen Collection. I love this collection, it has the retro, cheeky, vintage and beautiful all wrapped up in one.
I used one of Melissa Frances' backdrops as my heavy chipboard base and covered it with patterned paper and built it up from there.
A few details that I want to point out. I did do some stamping and copic work on this project. The cute silhouette images of pots and pans and spoons is from the background stamp of Hero Arts called "Kitchen Silhouette". I embossed this image in white directly to my patterned paper.
I also used my copic airbrush system to add some color to the die cut apples (cut from Melissa Frances crepe paper) and also to color the crepe flower I created in the corner.
Here is a close up of my crepe rolled flower. I used the rolled rose die from My Favorite Things to cut out my crepe flower and then rolled it up and a few shots with my airbrush gun. I colored a pearl with my copic marker to match as well.

Wishing you a creative and colorful day!
