Create Canvas

Hello Blog World,

Ok I know you have all been waiting patiently.  I teased you all yesterday with this sneak peek.


And I asked you what would a person need with all these rosettes?  Well now I am going to tell you, first a bit of background.

While perusing blog land a few weeks ago I stumbled across this beauty.

Isn’t it beautiful?  I knew when I saw this I wanted to make something similar. So while pottering around my craft room the other day and after making my flower magnets using my scraps, I saw this little blank canvas in my stash just screaming to be used.

So I grabbed some  of the paint I bought for redecorating – fresh breeze to be exact and painted up this little canvas.

I just love this colour!!!

I also had some Thickers fabric letters again just itching to be used.

So I dug through my gorgeous stash of material found some complimentary colours and made lots and lots of rosettes as you have already seen.

This is what happened when I threw them all together.

A different spin on Ginger’s version, but I am in love with it and it’s the first addition to my craft room that is slowly being redone. My inspirational piece with all the colours I am redoing my room in and something to inspire and motivate me in my craft blocked moments.

On another note I am very excited and very very nervous for two reason.  The first reason for excitement is I have started a facebook page for my site, so please stop by and look, there is not much there yet but it will hopefully grow slowly like my little place here in my corner of blogland, I look forward to meeting you all.

Secondly  I have enrolled in drawing classes and my first class is tomorrow!!! I am very shy believe it or not so am nervous about meeting new people and nervous about whether my work is good enough or not.  So think of me tomorrow night while I am feeling ill from nervousness by trying to branch out and better my crafts!  I will let you all know how it goes.

Until then Happy Crafting
