About Me

My photo

Well, I can't really tell you allllll about me! LOL. But I can tell you that I'm a wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, cousin, and Christian. And I love scrapbooking, card making, painting, and altered art.  I love to coordinate parties with themes and come up with new ways to incorporate paper art into them.   I enjoy working with my hands and making something out of nothing.  It's such a wonderful thing to know that there are so many beautiful women out there who share the same passion for this hobby....ART! that I do. I draw inspiration from everything around me and from people like you! So, let's get scrappin'!

Giant Flower Canvas

Hello everyone:

It feels like I've been away far too long!  Life has been busy, tiring, and go, go, go!  And even though I try my best to take some time out and craft something, anything every day; there's just never enough time in the day to do the tasks and get photos and post to my blog.

Sigh....retirement is just to far away!!! LOL

I've been wanting to do some small changes in home decor.  And so I figured that I'd like to check out Pinterest to see what others are up to.  Using decorative papers of course!  And while there, found a lovely canvas using paper to create an eye catching layout.  I had to try it.  It looked so very easy.  And it really was.  I stayed up well into the night and ended up creating a trio of canvasses.  (Of course I haven't had the time to hang them on the wall though....)

Recipe:  ColorBok Veranda patterned paper pack, burnt umber acrylic paint, ModPodge

I really like how they all turned out - the colors are so bright and cheerful, but not overwhelming for me and will more than likely make several others to be hung in different areas of the house once I come up with a different design.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to leave me some bloggy love.  I love hearing from you!

Hugs+Kisses
