Canvas Art

     Today I will attempt to add some artwork to my blog. Each day is a new experience as I was able to add a profile photo of my handsome hubby and myself and now to attempt the artwork. After completing a beautiful suitcase album by Linda Albrecht at Frost It Pink, I had a few scraps left over and decided to use them on this small project.  Starting with a canvas I purchased some time ago, a Cricut butterfly and some paper roses made following a tutorial from Becca Feeken., I put them altogether with a verse from ODBD Scripture Collection 1 and a little mod podge and there you have it. My first project.
          My second one was much more neutral on color and was composed of bits and pieces of ephemera I have had for ages. Some trim from my mothers curtains, a silk flower pulled from an arrangement long destined for the trash and a key from the dollar bin at Michaels.

I hope I have given credit where it is due as so much of my inspiration comes from those blogs I follow. Thanks for looking and I am open to any suggestions you might have.

My First Post

Well hello "soon to be"  followers. After much kicking and screaming accompanied by severe frustration  I have finally surrendered and  coerced my techno sons into making my blog. I am not in any way computer literate and so am learning as I go. I have limited time to tap into their great resources as they will soon be leaving me for college so I must get this blogging thing under control. Please bear with me as I muddle through this process. I am excited to be up and running.

Part of my motivation for this blog is my great enjoyment of scrapping  blogs and I so want to be able to share my findings with other crafters. Below is a link to a great "party" starting today and continuing thru the 25th of Feb. There are lots of challenges and prizes so be sure to check it out.
