Artisan Wednesday Wow: A Polka Dot Party!

Welcome back!!!

Do you remember the show called the Polka Dot Door?

Yup, that's what it was like last night.  I just had my sponge dauber, gold embossing powder and heat gun and just went around "dotting" everything!!

(special guesttttt... POLKA-ROO!... jk)
I started out with a simple canvas.
It's so easy...
And seriously... so nice.
Embossing Powder is A-MAZING. Gold is even better! 
Check my projects out up close!

Check out the gift bow die. That's right. 
I MADE that paper bow but with a die.  Yup. Easy.

My thought on the canvas was that I would start at the top with lots of gold dots and then they would thin out as I went down to the bottom.  It should have given the look of them falling.  I wanted to do three canvases and put it up in my living room. But apparently I didn't have a third canvas in that size in my "stock room". My husband likes the "love" on it.  I think I'd prefer it without it.  But that's me. Simple, clean, white and Gold.
(He's probably right. He often is)
And finally, think gifts!!!
My friend at My Paper Pumpkin Challenge is having a challenge so make sure you check that out.
Well, I finally stopped.
But don't stop here - check out Cindy's amazing projects!!
