in love with minis...

I TOLD you before...
I LOVE LOVE LOVE Maya Road's mini alphas...

Here's the proof...

Look what arrived yesterday...
THANK YOU MR FED-EX!

120 packages...YIPPEE!

2 styles...mini jonathan...mini noah...
mix & match is good...

Some for upcoming workshops...
some for me!
OK...LOTS for me...

If you want to see all their cute minis...look here


I NEEDED to play yesterday...
I was getting crabby...who me????????
I know...SHOCKING!

I haven't just played in a LONG time...

I needed a studio fix...it was really bad...

I took 30 minutes...

I had an idea brewing...

I pulled out my favorite mini jenni bowlin papers...
some of my stamps...
grungepaper...
the rose and leaves...the polka dots & the gingham too...
a touch of rock candy distress stickles...
some distress ink...
some jet black archival ink...
a Maya Road button...
a mini canvas...it's 4 inches square...

and what started the idea...

a canvas heart that I picked up while shopping on Saturday @ For Keeps Sake.

It's made by canvas corp.

Here's the result...


Now what I'm not showing is the film strip ribbon...
OMG!!!


I had an idea...
this is good...if I say so myself...ha!

It's so simple...duh...why didn't I think of that before???

So the moral of the story today?

canvas, grungepaper, paper, ink, stamps...
that must be why it's called mixed media art!
I GOT IT!

Now you...
make art!
HEY...I DID!

You are such a tease!!! Only showing part of the canvas. What we can see looks fabulous!!! Not much playing for me today... made a quick card for my son's birthday... can't believe he'll be 13 on Sunday... yikes!!!! However, I did get to play a lot this past Saturday and posted a couple of all Wendy Stamps projects on my blog.
