Believe ...

Hey Ya's!  I hope you're having a beautiful week so far!

Well .. I've finally made my first mixed media canvas!!!  Oh my gosh!  I bought a whole bunch of blank white canvases a couple of months ago .. and it has been sitting in my room .. waiting ever so patiently! 

My inspiration comes from an AMAZING artist by the name of Gabrielle Pollacco .. truly inspiring work!  I can see myself delving into these mixed medias as it's such a big space to let your happiness wander into.  :)

I've made it so the cherub image (got this image from Janet K Designs) can be removed and replaced with a personal photo: 

This canvas is 9 X 12 inches long and wow .. lemme tell you .. it was fun!

I've gotten to use some yummy goodies from the Ribbon Girl store such as:
Prima Cherub, Cheesecloth, Seam Binding, Prima Birdhouse, Bird Charm, Pearl/Diamante trim, Alice White Flower Lace Trim, Amelia Lace

And I've also used some lace from a very dear friend which she gave me for my Birthday  .. thank you I so love it and I'm trying my best not to hoard it.  hehe!!

Hope I'll have another one to show you soon!  ;)

Thank you ever so much for visiting me .. I truly love it when you do!  And I'll see you again soon!
