Here is my second attempt at the Canvas project - and this is the one I gave in our gift exchange. I used basically all the same stamps and inks as yesterdays canvas - with the addition of Polka Dot and Gingham papers!
Here you can see some of the details - grateful for the everday was the saying I chose for this one. Can you see I embossed the script background on the yellow of the house? It is with Satin pearl Embossing powder - but it doesn't show up very well.
Laney's canvas is coming along - she added some painting yesterday and all she has left now is the doodling! When she finished it up I will make sure it is ok to share hers so you all can see it! She is excited to hang it on her wall in her room.
I was talking to my mom yesterday about when I was younger and drawing. I have a memory of drawing those "Art Instruction School" art tests - remember those? They were in our newspaper I think - lots of places I think. I remember drawing the turtle first and then another time doing the pirate and the bear. I asked my mom how old I was the first time and she said I was 6! Her and I sat down together to draw the turtle. My drawing was really good - mom said better than hers and alot like the test image. That was the beginning of my love of drawing and art in general. I did not think I was so young - I was thinking 10 or so like Laney. I will have to get the drawings from my mom next time I am home.
We got sneak peeks to the new a*muse catalog that will be out at the end of the month - so exciting! Besides new stamps - we have new colors too! Don't forget to email me to pre-order a new catalog so I have one for you ASAP!
