Paint Party Friday!

It's the end of the week already... I guess what they say is true....
"my how time flies when you're having fun"!
I'd like to share three little somethings I had tons of fun creating!
They are three "fussed up" canvases ( 12" x 12") that I began months
ago but didn't quite know how to finish.  But last week,
when I should have been doing something else, it hit me!
They needed some bling!
Vintage bling to be more exact!  The piece above is a vintage
button, which I had two of, and keeps company
with two random earrings, a thrift store tag and
a Tim Holts key!
The background and textures where made using molding paste
and doilies... then adding paper, ephemera and acrylic paint.  They were
really an experiment when I started.  What
do you think... does it work?  What would you do differently... I'd
love to try and picture it!
This one (above) also has a shadowy stencil of a bird!  This time, in addition
to the vintage bling  I
added gesso to the key...and I love the effect!
I think my favorite key, tho, is this little one on the third piece!
It's so cute... and the matching earring, which broke, is in
the upper left along with another vintage earring!
I also really like the fact that it has glitter and the word 
SECRET on it!  
It feels good to finally have these canvases finished
and up on the wall... ready for a new home!
Making these was such a fun break from
what I usually paint... it actually inspired and energized me!
I also like how they look so much I'm
sure I'll make some more!
As always, 
thanks for checking in, be sure to
