This is my first canvas piece. Boy, is it different! I love it. It's so much more forgiving than cardstock. I guess that's probably pretty obvious to everyone else but, wow, I am amazed. I really had fun doing this ALL day. I didn't like the first thing I tried so it all came off and got covered up. I'm still not absolutely 100% in love with this one. Something is missing or off but I absolutely got lost in it and had a wonderful day. I imagine this woman as someone who has a husband away at war. I wrote the letter and then burned it and tore it and waxed it. That was fun. The woman came from Flickr photos. I need to start paying attention to who posts the pictures I use. Someone was kind enough to put this up to be used by anyone for collage. I've used 100% of my Flickr space so this is on Photobucket, but tomorrow I get to start all over on Flickr and this will go up there. I am definitely hooked on canvas.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend. Tim is sick and staying home from work so my day has been more relaxed. (that sounds bad, doesn't it?) Well, I didn't have to get him up and feed him at 4:30pm and pack his "lunch" and all that "work" routine. He's been lying on the couch watching movies and I've only left my crafty space a few times, so a pretty relaxing Saturday.
I feel like I'm beating my head against a brick art wall sometimes...like who am I kidding? But, I enjoy the process so even if it doesn't look like much I'm getting something out of it and that's what counts right?
I have some other collages I've done on card stock but I'm having trouble posting them so I'll come back to it later.
