Canvas playtime..

Good afternoon all, do hope your week has started well.

Mine started at 5-30 am when Karl had to leave to go to London...so I decided as I had a busy day ahead I might as well get up and start ticking jobs off the list...

After breakfast and walking the dogs I got on and tackled planning for future workshops...

Then it was some washing and ironing....some paperwork and then I just felt like something completely different...

So here we go...

Deep breath...

And ...

Bet you weren't expecting that....

Barbara has been having a canvas sale and doing lots of canvas work...so I just felt like joining her...

But doing it a bit differently...

The wax crayons were attached to the canvas using a glue gun...and then melted using a heat tool...

My canvas needed something else so a helpful friend of mine suggested the man with the umbrella from the Wheelie Stencils....and yes thanks Yvonne ....I like that idea...

So there we have it.... And yes...they were great fun to make....

Thanks for looking in....take card and pop back soon.

Love and hugs,

Jo. xxxx

  12. Well that's different but really fun. I forgot about my wheelie stencils too but rediscovered the branch & leaf one the other day. Think your little man is perfect though. He must be pretty scared waiting for hot , colourful wax to fall on him though! Best wishes, Jeanette xx
