Canvas Art

A friend of mine asked if I would make her 
2 canvas' as gifts for her daughter.
Now I have made a few with quotes and digi images
even ones with photos for me or for family
but I had not made ones like these for sale...

 I made the bricks (will do a post on that later)
and loved how they came out. 
 The quotes were what Kathy had picked out.
I am really happy with them!

Card Makin Mamas #83 Photo Inspiration!

This week at Card Makin Mamas 
our challenge is

I don't know why, but I never seem to do
photo inspirations very well. 
But here is my take..

I used an image from Simply Betty Stamps
and the Steampunk Classic Collection called "The Twins"
I kept it simple..pulling the brown from the frames in the picture
and focusing more on the image.

Make sure you head over to the Card Makin Mamas Blog and enter the challenge!

It's Up To You
Make a project using your favorite colors

I chose to use
Steampunk Josephine

I have really been getting into mixed media stuff lately
and I found some picture frames for $1.99 to $2.99 at
Hobby I decided to play a bit.

This is what I started with...
Added gesso and distress crackle...
Added sprays and embossing powders by Lindy's,
and added several metal embellies...
don't you love the "Sassy Girl"?

 I fell in love with this poem...
I am proud to be 43...wrinkles and all
I figured I earned them!
