I have been working on some canvases. 'How TWEET it is' is 11x14. It's done with paper and Mod Podge and then embellished with ribbon, buttons, magnetic words and dimensional paint. I started this as a whim but had a lot of fun with it.
I was very excited when a friend asked me to make one for her little girl. That's how 'Luv Bugs' came about. My friend wanted something with lady bugs. This one is also paper on stretched canvas. I used acrylic paint, magnetic words and buttons to embellish it.
I am working on one titled 'Dance'. It is an 8 x 10 canvas featuring a purple and pink penguin in a tutu. Once it is finished it will be available at my etsy shop.
Most of you know that frames were where I started with this. I had a friend who commissioned a music theme framed from me for her daughter. I liked it so much I had to do another one that was similar. I was pretty happy with the results.
I am anxious to know what you think. Please feel free to comment!
I would also like to know if you would be interested in finding out about other arts and crafters out there that I run across.
Don't forget to visit my etsy shop which doesn't look like much now but I am working on it!
