Finding time for blogging ...

Ugh, I feel like I haven't had a moment to spend on this blog in months.  Working full time, carpooling three kids ... finding time to relax with art ... the blog has just fallen off the list.  I have had a couple of projects on the Canvas Corp Brands Blog ... so I will add some links here!   And this is one project that I just made a mess, covered it and fell in love with the mistake canvas .... 

It started with a 7 Gypsies Mixed Media Paper Artboard 8x10 ....  

Then I covered the board with Deco Art Crackle Paste and mixed in a little Paper Artsy Fresco Finish Paint in my new fave ... Dusty Teal.  It dried overnight and in the morning - it looked amazing!

Then I looked through my sketch book and found a favorite quote.  I used google docs to find the right font and printed it out onto tissue paper.  I coated the cracked paint with matte gel and put the tissue paper down onto the board. I added some linen ribbon, twine, a vintage button!  Love this one!

Anyway, I promise - I will try to be here more often!

Here are some Canvas Corp links for you to follow if you want to see some of my projects from the last two months!
