The weekend is here. Unfortunately my husband has to work this weekend the University is having Open days and he is in charge of a stand. It only happens twice a year so I shouldn't moan. I do get some extra time to craft though and he has promised to take me out for a meal.
The beginning of the month is always busy with Design Team makes and today is no exception. The new challenge starts today on the Creative Artiste Challenge Blog. We have a sponsor Scrapmatts of Australia. Do you remember last time they sponsored us I lost the bits and pieces I had been sent? Well when I was having a tidy up I found them - whoop. They were in a very safe place :)
I decided to decorate a tiny canvas as one of the things I had was a small frame.
First I painted the canvas with a coat of white acrylic paint, Then I mixed some colours and used a mask I had been sent to create the background. I painted the frame with a mixture of paints. The good thing about making something like this is if you don't like how it is going you can paint over it and change the look.
I decided to make the poppies with the small dies in the Sue Wilson Exquisite Poppy set. The greenery was created with the Olive Branch die set.
This is one of the words I received with my set of goodies. I painted it with Acrylic paint and added it to the design.
It is a rather cute canvas. I might give it to my Mother-in-law she likes poppies.
I would like to join in with Week 244 of Pixie's Snippets Playground.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
