What you Imagine YOU Create


Wow, it has been a while.

But today is good day.

I found Finnabair not long ago, let me tell you, what an inspiration her mixed media artwork is.
I wait in anticipation for inspiration and ideas to bring to life on canvas.
I cannot believe I am into flowers this much, but to be honest, they do bring a lot of dimension and texture to a canvas.

With a lot of addition to my collection of Tim Holtz and Finnabair products, I am really enjoying the process of creating texture and dimension on a canvas and even tags.

Anyways, on Finnabair blog, there is a challenge for May, Celebrating International Scrapbooking Day.
Unfortunately it is closed now.  I thought it was running through the whole month, that is why I wanted to post my entry today.  Too bad, but I will share my mixed media canvas I made.  Hopefully I will share more of my creativity to come.

The challenge was to pick your favorite quote and see where your creativity will take you.  Enjoy the following photos of my canvas and hope it will inspire some you to create your own.

Please click on the photo, to view full picture.




I hope you enjoyed my canvas, let me know what you think.

I used:

Antique Linen (Distress Paint by Tim Holtz) for the whole canvas. 
Die cuts for the frame, butterfly, birds and bricks. 
Metal embellishments also by T.Holtz.
Flowers by Petaloo.  Larger rose, foam, bought from a Bargain Shop
Stamp sentiment/quote by T.Holtz, with black onyx Archival In, onto vellum sheets.
Micro-beads, silver by Finnabair.

Well, that's about it.

I have created two tags with the same quote.  Might post them up tomorrow.

Have a Fantastic Day
