Latest project .............

I had a notion the other day ... along with some inspiration to create myself something.
I found this 8"x8" canvas in our local $2.00 shop and thought I could do something with it.
I decided not to use the canvas in the traditional way ...... but flipped it over and used the back as a 'shadow box' type effect.
I found some gorgeous paper by PRIMA which had butterflies & the colour blue on it {from Pastiche Collection - 'Quirky'} & just knew I HAD to use that!!!  I covered the canvas with newspaper print bags, then added my pattern paper, found a photo to include and finished it off with beaded ribbon & trim and a Tim Holtz metal clock face.I distressed the edges with 'Walnut Stain' Distress Ink and Mod Podged the whole canvas.

I hope you like & get inspired to creat your very own.
Cheers for now.
luv me xxooxx
