Paris Canvas Handbag with Dangle Charm

Hello blogging friends!  I know it has been a few days since my last post.  I am still trying to get caught up on things since I was gone for a few days at ScrapFest.  I think my get up and go left me at ScrapFest--LOL--I have been so darn tired the past several days.  

Today, I have an altered canvas bag to share with you using some of my favorite products from 
Fun Stampers JourneySpellbinders Creative Arts®,  ButterBeeScraps' and  Lavish Laces.  I altered this canvas bag before I went out of town but just didn't have enough time to get it posted before I left.  I created a charm dangle using some of the hatpin bezels from Spellbinders Creative Arts®.  Then I added beautiful lace from Lavish Laces and I did some stamping using images from Fun Stampers Journey.  

Here is a close up of the dangle charm.  I die cut several canvas flower shapes using S5-050 Rose Creations die template.  When cutting the canvas I used the Artisan X-plorer and the Artisan X-plorer Metal Shim in with the plates.  This is the sandwich (plates) I used-- A Base Plate on the bottom, place the Spellbinders Artisan X-plorer Metal Shim on it. Add media on top of the metal shim and put Spellbinders die template on top with the cut side facing down. Cover with either Pink Embossing Plate or Raspberry Spacer Plate (depending on thickness of sandwich).  To color the flower I used pink nail polish and white acrylic paint.  Once that was dry I added a top coat of Pure Ice Dazzle Me 1005 nail polish.  For the leaves I used Silver Filigree Embellishment (Item #068-P) from ButterBeeScraps'.  I cut the metal filigree piece and glued them to the back of the flower.  For the flower center I used a MB3-001S Circle Hatpin-Silver.  I cut down the size of the pin and used the Loop Tool to create the loop to hang the charms from.  I filled the bezel with silver glass glitter and  ICE Resin and adhered it to the center of the flower. 

Here is a close up so you can see the loop on the MB3-001S Circle Hatpin-Silver.  

Here is a close up of the dangle charm.  I used MB3-004S Diamond Hatpin-SilverMD1-014 Diamonds One Die #1MB3-003S Square Hatpin-Silver from Spellbinders Creative Arts® to create the charms.  The images in the bezels are from Piddix.  These are great little images and match the size of the bezels perfectly.  I also used some Blue Moon Beads a division of DCWV and Rhinestone Rondelle Spacer Beads (Item #BD010-P/CL) from ButterBeeScraps' and a piece of rhinestone chain.

I used a couple of stamps from the Love Paris #SS0008 stamp set from Fun Stampers Journey for the images on the canvas bag.  To stamp the images I used StazOn Jet Black ink from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko.  Then I added a rhinestone flourish and I covered the front of the bag with Pure Ice Dazzle Me 1005 nail polish.  

For the top of the bag I added some gorgeous Venise White Fancy Fringe Lace Trim from  Lavish Laces.  Then I added some pink Blue Moon Beads a division of DCWV to dangle down from the lace.  To finish off the top of the canvas bag I added some ruffle trim and white rosette trim from Hobby Lobby.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  
I hope you like my altered Paris canvas handbag with the dangle charm.
