Amy Jo's Birthday Bash Blog Hop

If you are here for the Shabby Accents Blog Hop go Here

Welcome to Amy Jo's Birthday Bash & Blog Hop!

We are so excited you could join us today to help celebrate 
Amy's birthday!
 This is a very special unique hop as we were not required to just stick with one particular subject or theme. Amy asked us all to use any of her favorite things to create a card or project with that in mind. Some examples of Amy's favorite things are the colors black, white, and hot pink, along with anything Alice in Wonderland, she listed some of her favorite animals, etc!

If you arrived here from LISA then you are in the right place! If you just happened upon my blog today, please start at the beginning with Amy Jo because you don't want to miss out on the fabulous prizes that are being sponsored!
 This is a two-day hop; however, we are only making one project. That should give you two full days to go through the entire hop and leave comments on each blog and become followers of each blog, if you are not already, to be entered to win some of our sponsored prizes! Some blogs may be offering blog candy as well so this is a hop you're gonna wanna finish!
Surprise Amy!
Here is your birthday gift 
a 6"x6" canvas I made for you. I'll be sending you this tomorrow.

I just a layered paper, paint and ink.
I made the crepe fringe with vintage crepe paper I found at a antique store.

The dress form is a Tim Holtz Die. I painted it with 
distress crackle paint; Broken China
dabber acrylic paint; Gold. I inked edges with Mixed Media Inx; Truffle
I added the tulle to the dress for with hot glue.

I also used some light molding paste with some Cobalt Teal fluid acrylic
I like using the light molding paste because it dries rather fast.
I also sprayed the canvas with some 
Lindy's Stamp Gang Moon Shadow Mist; violaceous violet, I have 
just started using this mist and I really like it.
 Happy Birthday Amy, I hope you Like her canvas.
Thank you so much for joining us and helping us celebrate along with Amy! Your next stop is the talented Beckie
I do have some blog candy for one lucky follower 
that leaves a comment here on my blog.
I'll be choosing a random number to pick the lucky follower on Friday. 
Please leave me your contact info 
so, i can connect with you if you are the lucky one :)
Thanks for Hopping with us today
