About Me

My photo
I LOVE to design and to paint whimsical items that will put a smile on your face. Each day I share my simple life with you as I try to encourage, to inspire and sometimes JUST to make you smile as I recount my life growing up on a dairy farm! I've never had many material items in my life, BUT I have been blessed beyond words with love and encouragement from WONDERFUL Parents who instilled in me WHAT was important. I have had EVERYTHING that I needed and WAY too much of what I wanted. I am slowly learning to be a better person each day through my interactions with my friends on Facebook. Some day I hope to be as good as people seem to THINK I am! I am BLESSED! Welcome to my little corner of the world...Please stop by and visit often!

Love Canvas~~Mixed Media

I love watching videos to see what others are creating.

Creative Hearts Monday by Cyndi Cesare 
created this project this week.
I wanted to put my twist to it using 
DecoArt Products
This is what I came up with.

I used a 4x4 wrapped canvas.
I carried all of the design over to the sides.

A Little Froggie stopped by for a visit this morning
He just wanted to visit my beach

I painted some paper with the Red 
and cut out a heart.

I cut out LOVE from the paper.

I added some more texture with 
gesso and the bubbles stencil.
I also used some 
punchinello and White 
for more contrast.
I think most things need a bit of
Also, since the heart was Red,
I added Red in the background.

I outlined the heart and letters with a pen.

Oh, look, Ralphie made his last guest appearance.
