Guest Designer: Michele Kosciolek

SO super excited today to be introducing today's 3 Girl JAM guest designer, Michele - from Stuff By Belle.  Michele and I have been online crafty friends for some time, and let me tell you.....this gal's work is swoon-worthy!  Here's Michele!

Michele, or as some of you may know me...by belle, here today with a mixed media canvas project.  I am honored to be joining 3 Girl JAM today as a guest designer! 
I have been doing some sort of paper crafting for as long as I can remember but card making is where is all started... I love to spend hours in my craft room gluing, painting, stamping, tying ribbons etc...I am sure you all know exactly what I mean!!!!
On this canvas I used two fabulous 3 Girl JAM ribbons: jute and pink crinkle.  I also used UmWow Studio Chipboard, gesso, modeling paste, Distress paint and stain, Studio Calico wood veneer, Prima flower and leaves, floral pins and a Tim Holtz key and knob.

Here's a close-up:

I had so much fun creating this!!  Do you ever get an idea and then just can't stop until you are done??  Well, that is what happened with this canvas.  Thanks so much for sharing part of your day with me and special thanks to everyone at 3 Girl JAM for having me today!!  For more about me please feel free to visit on my blog anytime!!  http://stuffbybelle.blogspot.com.
Now, what did I tell you?  Total swoon, huh?  The beautiful crinkle ribbon totally sets off the pink and the gold in Michele's design.  POP!  And that beautiful Jute ribbon accents.....swoon!  On behalf of 3 Girl JAM thanks Michele for sharing your beautiful creation with us!
