CHALLENGE CANVAS & a JOURNAL PAGE

Hellooooo, the start of another week!  Where is the time going to & how come I don't seem to have too much of it?? haha

With the beginning of a new month comes another challenge BubblyFunk courtesy of their challenge blog....VANILLA SUGAR.....sweetly handmade!  This month we are asking you to create a wallhanging/canvas.  Now, do you remember those fabulous bright sprays that I bought from Ally Pally????  I have been playing with those to make this...

I painted the base with bright orange Eco paint then added a thin layer of gesso.  Then I had fun spraying the colours on the top!!!  Luckily I had Eco paints in the same colours & used those to decorate the TANDO flowers & leaves.  Some glitter & glossy stuff was added to lift it.

While I was at it I also made up a journal page....please bear with me as I am so new at this...


Talking of journalling, I have signed up for a free course by Tam which looks amazing.  Take a look ~here~.  We are going to be doing some interesting stuff.  Its for anyone who has 'down' days this is perfect so do join in!!!!!

Thank you so much for popping by to see me, see you again soon, HUGS & STUFF XXXX
