Canvas play....

I have seen LOTS of scrappers playing with canvas art and mixed media lately, so I thought I'd have a crack. I will eventually sign up for the full SHE ART tutorial but for now I just had a look at Kristy's blog and watched the free tutorials. I first had a play on simple shipping cards, above!

Then played with a background for a canvas for Poppy's room!

And finished it like this! It was loads of messy fun and didn't take much time at all! I'm really happy with it and have plans for one for Lola and a larger one for the hallway!

I have two LOs on the go and will post them later!

Winter has finally hit so I might get a bit more crafting/scrapping done indoors!

Happy Mother's Day...

I whipped up these cards for my MIL and Great Grandma "Oma"...we also filled them with printed photos of the girls and candles/candle holders & an Oroton wallet for my MIL. She constantly minds my girls while I work and although she has everything under the sun if we find one or two really nice things that she will like I will buy it in thanks for all her help! We had a wonderful day...breakfast in bed then onto lunch out with the inlaws. The girls were really well behaved and the food was great! I was spoilt. I have really wanted a pizza maker for ages so I got one of those. But in true tradition I also got a new vintage style Kate Hill handbag! Both presents were my favourite colour - red!Of course though, the things we love the best are the homemade pressies! And Poppy was sooooo excited to wake me up this this gorgeous poster! It cracks me up, I think my dress is upsidedown and I lost a shoe somewhere but I LOVE it. And the writing is spot on!

And I love this pic of Miss P smooching with her great grandmother "Oma". They get along famously and I know my girls are so blessed to have such wonderful grandparents!

Hope all the mums had a wonderful and love filled day! X
