For the past year, I've been so busy that I haven't been able to visit people's blog's like I used to. I've wanted to do it so many times but time just flies by. I apologize and hope that you understand and that is why I have these giveaways as a token of my appreciation.

 I'm very grateful for those of you who despite my "busyness", still make the effort to visit my blog and leave comments every once in a while.

However there's one person that although didn't enter my giveaway has left me a comment on each and every post on my blog since I started posting over 3 years ago.

I'm truly grateful for her comments and love; and even though I don't have time now to always visit her blog, she continues to leave me comments each and every time.

Create- Mixed Media 6x6 Canvas with Prima Finnabair Collection + Video

Here is another project created for the Prima blog.

I created a mixed media 6x6 canvas and combined Finnabair's vintage trinkets products with her new mediums.
Prima's Finnabair Mixed media products are fantastic and I'm just so grateful to be able to create with them.

 I wanted to create a very artsy canvas to showcase my creative side and the happiness it brings me every single day. Creating art for me is like getting in touch with my soul on a deep level and I'm so grateful for it. I even incorporated two old paint brushes as I wanted to include a touch of "me" in my project. I have a step by step video below on how I created this canvas. Hope you enjoy it and it inspires you to create more art.
