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.
