Today for this blog hop I am sharing with you my first post for Craftwell. For this kind of mixed media project I got inspired by my love for coffee and a coffee cardboard sleeve, I got at at small coffee shop in Fredericksburg, TX.  This is my end result:

Craftwell Tools: Cut N' Boss and Teresa Collins dies. For more supplies and steps to make this wall-hanging, please head over my Snapguide. Furthermore, all die cuts from the Teresa Collins dies, were made from used Stay-Wet paper, which was stained with many acrylic colors from my painting palettes.

Here are some more close looks:

I attached the Sizzix frame die cut only by the edges to add dimension to the frame.

I attached the tags only by the brad, leaving some movement to the whole piece, sticking the end of the tags inside the coffee sleeve:

I made a dangle using one of the TH IdeOlogy tags, a brad, and a vintage button:

 I tried to add as much dimension, as I could:

I added the Teresa Collins die-cut heart and a veneer cup from Latina Crafter, which I embellished with a red heart cut with a Sizzix die for contrast.

I hope you enjoyed my first craft for Craftwell and follow their blog as well

Many blessings

Now head over to Amanda

Here's our line up in case you get lost along the way.

I am also participating in the following challenges:

Distress ink, distress crayons, acrylics

movable tags and dangle.

because of its colors, I find this canvas very masculine.
