Mother's Day Collages

Well, third post in a row. WOW! I am pushing it! But, I am behind in sharing my creations. I just want to get them out there.

Our Michael's has Martha Stewart Shadow Boxes on clearance for $3.00. They're heavy duty chipboard that is fabric covered. I loaded up on these babies. Well, I came up with an idea on a whim and am happy with how they turned out.

I made a collage for my mom and my MIL for mother's day. I used an old retired SU set I bought off ebay last year along with a stampabilities french script background my SIL gave me. I masked the image to get the background around it in Palette Noir. I used a heat tool to try it. I cut various sizes of coordinating paper and attached them using 3D glue dots. I adhered the transparency to the paper using crystal glaze- it dries clear! I embellished using primas, paper flowers, and tags.

This is my MIL's using CTMH Silouhette Paper.

This is my Mom's, using TAC Amberley Grace Paper. Sorry for the glare, I am not a professional photographer :)

Here is the matching card for Mom.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
