Canvas art in shades of grey…

IMG_5377 (Medium)IMG_5378 (Medium)I am going to be MIA for the next few days – My sister and I are leaving all the males we are surrounded by in our families and going on a girly road trip down the coast to Robe. We are looking forward to a lovely relaxing time of good food, lots of fresh sea air to blow the winter cobwebs away and hopefully a little sunshine! So today I have posted a canvas art I made instead of the usual card. I painted my canvas black and added a few strokes of white to vary the background a little. I had left a little patch without paint which I sprayed with Dylusions spray in yellow. I die cut some thick chipboard using my Tim Holtz sizzix umbrella man and lamp post, painted black and then swiped a little more white. I used a stencil for the brick wall, and some texture paste and once again painted roughly black. I typed the sentiment on the compter, and matted each word with black cardstock. Something completely different for me – not a ribbon or bling in sight but I always knew I was going to do something a little different with my umbrella man – I love him! Til Monday, keep safe…..


Umbrella man…

I have put up 2 photos today, because I wanted to show the inside of this card. On the front I have used a cuttlebug embossing folder – clockworks, and 2 Tim Holtz sizzix dies – lampost and Umbrella man – I love him…..The clock face he is looking at is cut from a piece of Kaisercraft acrylic . I smudged a little distress ink along the bottom and on the light, and there is a circle die cut frame which was handily on my craft table at the time….For the inside I printed a favourite quote and the paper backing is kaisercraft Timeless. The cardstock used today is C’oredinations. I have had a very productive day in the craft room today, and have planned out my lessons for March at Paper Flourish, and set up the February lesson for the Village ladies.Makes up for all the time spent away from my room because of the heat.Til tomorrow….
