Canvas art

This was a kit that I bought a couple of years ago, and for some reason it was alittle intimidating to start the project.  Don't know if it was I was waiting on the right pictures or just the canvas art part of it.  I did decide to do this today as a challenge and now I want to do more on canvas.  This was a 9 x 12 artist canvas with the wooden frame on the back, I added an 81/2 x 11 paper and then ribbons and started embellishing.  Everything came in the kit  so now after probably 2 years it is finally done.

Note Card Set

This note card set was fairly quick and easy to do.  I love the colors, don't know what the obsession is lately with pink and black but that seems to be my go to colors.  This has 8 note cards on the inside.

A Challenge

These were 2 items that were done as a challenge on the cricut circle board.  I actually used items I had and some people say that I don't use my items won't they be surprised when they see these.  Hope you enjoy.

Metal Card

I made this with another soda can, and cut with my spellbinder die and embossed, then used some alcohol inks for color.

Metal Flowers

This was made using a mountain dew soda can.  It is very sharp when cutting the can apart.  I then used the stampin up daisy #2 sizzix die and cut the flower peices.  After running through the big shot the edges are not as sharp as the cut metal can.  I used a large brad and put a pin on the back so you could wear these.  I can't wait to make more of these using different colored soda cans.

Painted Petals

This is a card that I made using  TH distress inks, and a watermarker, and some embossing.  This was a new technique that I had never done but had so much fun doing it. There is a class being offered at Archivers in Raleigh on how to do this.  I was there on Friday with Lorraine, we had taken a class earlier that morning and then attended the friday nite crop we also had the pleasure of meeting some of the ladies in the area from the cricut board. Can't wait to go again.

Spring is just around the corner

This is the first daffodil to bloom in my yard.  Spring is coming.
