FWF.. Inspired Canvas Album

Oh ,Don't you just love Friday's.. I am super excited for this weekend.. Friends With Flair Fridays are Wonderful!!

Today I am sharing another page from my Inspired Canvas Album.. I am enjoying the process of this art filled Album. It is another side of me that I am exploring Using my paints to paint pictures of my favourite things and stamps to decorate it!! Also using those wonderful quotes that inspire me..

It took me all day yesterday to figure out what I wanted to do.. I have a ton of paint on this page.. doing a self portrait of myself.. with no nose, cause well ,I just don't know how to do noses.. and the mouth itself took me an hour to get it looking like this.. but in the end it was all worth the effort and the globs of paint on my hands. I so love it!!

trust in your potential....

I just love this quote in the "SHE", Donna Downey set from Unity Stamp Company.
I am in the process of doing just this... so to me it was perfect for this page in my album.

Using Acrylic paint I did this self portrait of myself all free hand.. it took awhile but I am liking it alot.. I even love the glitter in my hair.. well in real life those would be my grey's that sparkle and shine..hehe. I then Used some of the stamps from the Samantha Walker Butterfly Garden set.. white ink.. but it didn't show up so I went over it with some of the flowers from the same set in black ink, popped some red paint to the centers and some more glitter on the butterflies. Sparkly and so pretty!!


I also addes some of my polymer clay accents.. it is a light embellishment that is just perfect for this kind of album. I am trying to keep it not so bulky.


Well this weekend we are going to the cottage for our Birthday Weekend.. I will turn that big 46 this year and my Hubby will be 44.. Yes, we share the same day, very cool. I am looking forward to spending time having some fun, roasting some marshmellow, hoping for no rain!! Yes, and no Mosquitoes as well. So if I don't get to comment on your blogs you will know why.. but I will try when I come home Monday or Tuesday.

Time to hop on over to Unity's Blog and check out the particpant on today's HOP!! Find that Blinkie and have a great day.

Hugs to you all,

Angie
