Just dream!

Good morning crafters, bloggers & friends.......hope you're all well.......and
had a fantastic weekend too! Something a little bit different from me today, I've
wanted to have a go at a canvas for ages, got myself all excited.......then didn't have
a clue where to start lol. So I started small, with a mini canvas & this is the end result
 & for a 1st attempt I'm quite pleased. First I covered the canvas with gesso, the
turquoise is done with mica powders & wow, I love that stuff, then when dry I inked
 the edges with a grey ink pad.  A simple die cut heart inked with grey & a stamped 
sentiment from Visible Image also painted with mica & inked with grey & that's it..
......I did want to add something else but not sure what so just left it as is. Can't wait to 
have another go......Miss Rebecca has already got her order in! 
A bit THANK YOU to you lovely people who sent Rebecca birthday wishes
& cards......they're fabulous & so appreciated.....she had a lovely day, was spoilt
rotten.......and ate huge amounts of cake lol! 

Rightio, off to do some nasty housework.....thanks for calling, whatever you're up to
hope you have a lovely day!
