Lucky girl?

Lucky. Well to me she's wondering if she's so lucky! I scanned this because it's rainy here today and I had to crop out the very top of it. It is a little handle from who knows what that I glued to the top.

I started out with a new canvas from Walmart. I glued down a piece of scrapbook paper. I used a dark blue acrylic paint around the edges and watered it down and wiped some away leaving the middle fairly light. I scraped on some pink, yellow and light blue paint as well.

I used a stamp with some script and stamps that are numbers.

I added some old paper clips and scanned an old ruler. I didn't want to use it cause I might want to use it again! lol!

 I don't have a clue what this went to but the color worked and I liked it there, so it stayed.

 The little label holders came from, ya know I don't remember! Jo-Ann's, Hobby Lobby, Walmart, one of those!

I printed out the work lucky on a piece of card stock and glued it on the holder and then glued that on as well. I was going to put resin on this piece but it makes me nervous to do it! What if it doesn't set right then it's ruined! Has anyone else done that with resin?
