CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Blank Canvas

Thank you for joining us this month as we highlight the "Blank Canvas" technique as showcase on page 32 in our Annual Inspirations Idea Book.  

If you are coming from Aggie's Blog, you are on the right track.  I am the start of this blog hop.  I list of participants is contained below should you get lost along the way.

We were asked to show the fun and benefits of crafting on our My Creations 6 x 6 Canvas Display.  I have seen so many fun ways they have been used and am excited about what you will see through this hop.  I decided to give my hand at "She Art", a mixed media project, and this is what I came up with!  Does she look like me?! 
My friend, Leisa, sketched out on some scratch paper - it was interesting to see how she sees me - and then I used it to create this home decor' item that I will place in my office area.  

I paper-pieced various types of B&T (much of which came from the Brushed paper packet; the heart was cut out of Yuletide Carol B&T) and various colors of Cardstock.  I cut out some of the floral images from the B&T, cut the honeycomb pattern from the Artbooking Cricut cartridge, and just added some goodies here and there to cutesy it up.  While a bit intimidated when I started, I was pleased with the finished result.  (I used Modge Podge to both adhere and seal my artwork.)  I hope you like it as much as I do!  

Thanks for stoppin' by!  Let me know what you think of my out-of-the-box creation before moving onto Belinda's Blog!
