Mixed Media Canvases

 I don't if you know but I have a love for creating mixed media canvases! I sell them in my shop and Etsy shop too. I thought it was about time I started showing some of my creations on here so here are a few of the canvases I've sold recently!

'She lives her life with beauty and grace'
This one went all the way to America!

These were made to order for Christmas presents, name canvases, I make them with any name on.
I loved getting all girly with these!

This one has shimmer mist and gems on so it really changes it light!

I really love making them and find it really easy as if you make a mistake it doesn't matter or if you don't like something you can just change it!
Hope you like them! xx

Sketchy Sunday!

This weeks challenge over at The Studio was a lovely sketch. The sketch had lots of possibilities on the way to use it but for this I stuck quite close to it, the main difference being my photos are the other way found and a added some stars!
I love these colours together, these Thickers don't photograph very well as their metallic, they look a lot better in real life, the blue of them matches well!
The photos are of my nephew when we took him to a animal zoo, he had to have a go on the dodgems/ bumpers cars he loved it! I love the bottom photo has he's sticking his tongue out in concentration!

There's loads of inspiration over on the blog and if you join in you can win some scrapping goodies from You Do.

We have loads of snow here so I went out on Friday and made a snowman and a snowdog!! They are still there, they haven't flown off yet but then they could of where I saw asleep!!! I'll have to upload a photo of them! Hope you enjoying the snow where you are, stay warm! xx

New Beginnings

Happy New Year!!  Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and 2013 is a great year for you! I know I've been a bad blogger, there's lots I've got to catch up on! 

I will start with the first Challenge of the year that is now up at The Studio. Today we were challenged to make a layout about new beginnings. I used a photo I took on New Years Day and the challenge is about being excited about the year to come as I have got, not one but two nieces/nephews on the way within weeks of each other! I can't wait!
If you enter this month challenges at The studio you can win some great goodies from You Do a Swedish scrapbook company.
I will be back with my Christmas journal, I'm so bad I haven't even photographed it yet but I will! And I might do my favourite 10 layouts of the year as I've always wanted to do that so come back soon!!
Thanks for stopping by! xx
