One of THOSE projects.....

....and this is one!
I needed to make a 4" x 4" canvas,
representing my style for
Canvas Corp Brands DT.
Without a clear plan, I decided to use
the mood board from
Our Mixed Media Moods for my inspiration.

.....and so my exploration began.

You see, I had been on a "paper" making frenzy
so I chose one of my "creations" to be the base to my canvas.
I cut a 3.75 x 3.75 piece and adhered it to
my Canvas Corp Brands 4 x 4 Canvas.
I then picked one of the pieces from
the UmWowStudio's
Mini View Finder Mash
and cut it in half.
Next, I applied Crackle Paint to the face of each piece.
When they were dry, I adhered them to my canvas.

For my numbers....
I dove into my stash of Thickers
(I know you have one too)
and adhered them randomly to my canvas
with Multi Medium Matte.

....but I wasn't happy!
So, I walked away from it for a day....

I came back and applied my new addiction....
USArtQuest ~ Prills using
Multi Medium Matte. 

....but I wasn't happy!
So I walked away from it for a day....

I decided it needed a bit more Crackle Paint.....

....but I STILL wasn't happy!
So I walked away for another day....

As I pondered on my creation
I decided it needed a bit more color to ooze
into the cracks and crevices of the Crackle Paint.
So, I pulled out a bunch of Tattered Angels Goodness
and let the coloring begin....

......If you know me you know
I think no work of art is complete without
so......I went to my collection of Yvonne Blair Designs stamps
and "Just Breathe" jumped out at me...

I took my creation out and photographed it and realized
I STILL wasn't happy!!

SO.....I headed back to my desk and pulled out a bit of
cheese cloth and wire mesh.....

NOW.........I WAS HAPPY!!!

PHEW.....what a journey.
but I do think it "Captures my Style"
Thank you for stopping by and checking out my creation!!
