I am taking an online class called 21 Secrets. One of the first workshops I took was Child's Play by Alma Stoller. She shows how to make your own canvases with cardboard, newspaper and mod podge. I have felt compelled to make these little canvases for the last few months. And I mean compelled! I have at least twenty five little things here by my fan, in different stages of completion. This project suits my ADD!  I think somewhere in the back of my mind I know I am going to open an etsy store some day soon.... So I decided I better start painting these babies!
That's what I've been doing the last few days. Layers upon layers.
 Paint. Stamps. Ink. Words. Fun.
Art is Fun.
What I would like to do is make a piece and give it to my future daughter in law as a shower gift in a couple weeks. But it is hard to make something with meaning for a young couple just starting out.
A new life... a new home... a new routine.
Melding two lives into one.
Two styles...Different tastes.
Maybe I will let them choose?

I made it so it can hang easily. These velcro strips are genius!

Be Brave Dear Ones. Just Go For it!
