Life is SIMPLE....

BUT IT'S NOT EASY....
Isn't that the truth??!?!

That saying was the focus of my creation today
using Die~Namites Dies!!


And guess what I used on my little canvas....


Here is a close up of the Leafy Branch Die
using Corrugated Kraft E-Flute by Canvas Corp
just love the texture it gave the leaves.


I then painted the leaves with Twinkling H20's
Olive Vine, Pretty Peridot
and Rainforest
to allow for shading on the leaves.


I also added what I call "white noise".
You know the item that just makes your piece
pop....but it's not the focal piece....just there
to make it ALL WORK!
For that effect I used the
Die~Namites ~ Bamboo Sticks die.


For a bit of different texture....
I used Adhesive Corkstock from Canvas Corp.
Then I painted it with Twinkling H20's
Autumn Butternut and Cedarwood.


....and there you have it!
A wonderful gift...
for my daughter!!
HOPE SHE LIKES IT!!
