Not my workdesk as such this week as I am waiting on a parcel to arrive with more crafty goodies before I get going again ... waiting on some new canvasses as I have a couple of ideas rolling around in the vast emptiness of my head but am really quite excited at seeing
how IF they come together.
I was putting off working on canvas despite really wanting to Have-a-Go so cajoled and pushed and encouraged by my very dear friend MaggieC (Silvercrafter) I took that deep breath and did just that ... Had-a-Go!
Can't say I am dreadfully pleased with the results, but they have grown on me A LITTLE these past few days and they may not now be heading for the bin. They didn't turn out anything like I planned or hoped ... they are loosely based on a design by Barbara Gray at Clarity Stamps and having gone back to see her piece over and over again I now realise where I went wrong.
This was the first one I did :
Then using the same three colours I decided to Have-Another-Go and what a difference!
The colours are not showing up so well on here but the first canvas was very green and the second one purple! Yet the same three colours of paint were used for both ... love the randomness of it I have to say!
I think had I not got a specific goal in mind I might feel happier about these but because they are so far removed from what I set out to do then I have struggled to find them acceptable. Shall hang on to them for a bit longer before deciding what to do with them ... I have had two very kind offers of new homes for them to save them from the bin but am waiting to see if they grown on me some more or if I should keep them as an example of my first
