This'll be fun as I'm using the new format of Blogger today but at least I've actually managed to find out how to write a new post by clicking on the pen image of the first screen I was presented with.
A few weeks ago, I shared the beginnings of a canvas I was going to do - go here to look at that first posting. I've now finally finished it. I could give you a load of excuses as to why it's taken me so long but basically I think alot of it has been down to lack of confidence. This is definitely not a comfort zone activity for me at all and because I didn't really know where it was going, I subconsciously avoided going to it. A bit like my daughter treats her maths homework! I've now decided to call it a day with it. What do you think?
There are loads of things I can see that I'm not mad keen on, such as the blue paint slap bang in the middle; it's not a smudge, it was just created when I did the paint layer. I'm nervous of getting a brush and watering it down to move the colour a)incase I make the border between ground and sky too distinct or b) make an even bigger mess. The sun isn't anywhere near as good as one I saw online in that style and...and...and. I've considered loads of other things, such as book print/newspaper stems coloured with ink or doodling somewhere but no.
It is time to call this finished.
I'm happy with the idea of the clouds. I'm pleased with my actually owning a flower stamp and Temptin' turqoise Stampin' Up stamp pad to use. I like that the occasional flower has been coloured in with watered down ink from my craft mat. I'm also quite keen on the turqoise string I used as a centre piece on a flower to add even more interest and to balance off the mosaic tiles.
I'll keep on practising as I think they make dinky little home decor items.
Take care out there
