I keep forgetting about some of my CHA projects I haven't shared here yet. This little piece of Canvas Art is one of them. I'm pretty excited about TA has a new home with Canvas Corp! They I used one of Canvas Corps, canvas pieces for this project, along with TA Paints and Crafty Secrets ( bird image). I had taken step out photos for packaging, so I decided I'd go ahead and share them, so you can see the process :) The photos pretty much give you the idea of how the paints were used.
Supplies to start with
When adding the mists and paints..I always start light..and I more as I need. Much easier to add more then try to take away color.
Once I lift my screen, I have the design of the stencil or screen on my canvas. (blank canvas underneath), so that's where I added some pink. (cosmos)
Once everything is totally dry, all that's left is assembly. My favorite part :) Love putting it all together and adding goodies. lol
Yesterday I met up with my sis in Lincoln, and we just spend the entire day bumming around, checking out some antique shops, ...chatting, junking, laughing, and the things that make for a fun sister day. It's been a while since I've been away all day like that.. and it was so fun and relaxing!
We really didn't buy all that much, ( no fear..there's a huge flea market this weekend that we're going to, so we can redeem ourselves) lol but we sure had fun. I should have taken the stuff out of the bags and photographed in then, because by the time I got home late last night, we realized, I had some of her things here with me, and she had some of mine with her. But like I said, we'll be together Saturday, so no worries :) I did find that seat/storage bench thing for Jarad and Kate.. for the bargain price of $11.99. Woo hoo. It was so sturdy and in such great shape, but it could easily be covered in some fun fabric if they wanted. Kate said they could really use it in there sun room. I got my sis that little red doll chair for her birthday. She has a highchair just like it. Other than that we found some fun little pieces, some old plates, tea cups ( I plan to use for May baskets ) and a frame I thought would be cool for an altered piece.
There is just nothing better for a girls creative soul to spend a day, seeing things, and just being inspired by design and color. Fun things to look at all around.
Whether its displays...
art and design...
fabric and textures..
Or ..um.... Sweets??
(isn't it pretty? pretty tasty too!) My sister took me to their favorite little Mexican bakery.
It was so good to spend some "happy time" with my sis yesterday. ( thanks to the clerk for taking the photo.. ha.)
