Canvas Me This!



Yes this week's Sentimental Sundays challenge is "Canvas Me This" (with a sentiment) & if you would like to have a go at this fabulous technique our wonderful sponsor Just Some Lines have a tutorial HERE :o)  I didn't have a canvas so I used an old coaster:  I painted the edges of the coaster with gold acrylic paint, added some DP with the corners rounded & used a torn strip for a border.  The image is JSL Petite Pot - Getting In which I coloured with ProMarkers, I finished it off with sequins, pearls & a stamped ticket (or & some glitter glue on the wings).  I can't use it for my cuppa on it now but it makes a nice decoration for my craft room windowsill :D

The challenges:
LEJ Designs - Mystical, Magical or Mysterious
Dream Valley - Things with Wings
ABC - F is for Fantasy
That Craft Place - Altered Item
Eclectic Ellapu - Literally Anything Goes
Pink Gem - Going Green 
Nutcrafters - Anything Goes


I hope you're having a fantastic weekend, we've done the usual shopping but I did manage to fit in some crafting & today I'm going to plant some courgettes and salad leaves (I hope the snails don't eat them all like they did last time I grew them lol).
