The morning started out with my wanting to be creative but with only blank space where my mojo should have been!! So I did what I could and gathered my acrylic blocks and gave them a good scrubbing. And then I proceeded to tidy my crafting space. And there, sitting in its packaging, were the mini canvases I purchased yesterday at Michael's.
They were just the right place to start! The surface was pre-pepped with gesso and was very forgiving as I experimented.
I stamped the flower from Penny Black's Blooming Garden and a sentiment from PB's Eloquence and then heat embossed. Then it was a matter of applying various inks with a sponge pad. The gesso provides a base that allows a lot of movement of the inks, even wiping them off if need be. When I got the look I wanted, I sprayed the finished canvas with a fixative. Added a wooden bird for balance. I found this neglected frame in the closet and presto! This will sit on my desk to fluff up my ego!!
In case you couldn't read the sentiment:
Too hot to be outdoors today! Big golf tournament on tv to keep husband entertained. I will have lots of time to play today. Hope you can do the same.
So glad you stopped by!!
