Watercolor Canvas

Hello. How are you?

Here is my entry for the first round of the current Hero Arts Challenge.

First I white embossed the Classic Bloom stamp six times. Then I water-colored the flowers with Distress Inks and Perfect Pearls Mist. Finally I cut them out and adhered them to the canvas (8” x 10”) with Glossy Accents.

I haven’t been blogging lately. Did you even notice I was gone?  Smile

I have been really busy at work and at home. We saw Glee (live), we had our heating and air conditioning replaced (expensive!), a plumber was here to fix the guest room shower (the same day Stephen’s parent’s arrived from North Carolina for a visit!) and more.

I’ve taken at least eight (!) classes in the last month or so, seven of them featuring Hero Arts stamps:

Hope I haven’t shared too much. I usually don’t have this much to say! I will post more pictures soon.

Thanks for visiting! Your comments make me smile!

Hugs,
Joy

WOW - your canvas is stunning Joy. And how lucky are you to have attended all those amazing classes. No wonder we haven't seen much of you.... too busy creating

Yes, I did miss your posts, Joy and was wondering if you were okay! This is beautiful and it is good to see you back. Great classes you were able to take, too!

Glad you're back to posting;I missed your inspiration. You have truly been busy. Oh, those classes sound great. Jen and Shari...ooo, la, la!

I'm so glad you found some time to create that lovely flower grid canvas...I love it! What a busy girl you've been, at least there was some fun activities mixed in with the work and the plumbing and heating problems. Taking classes with JM and SC not to mention seeing Glee...I'm a bit jealous, I must say.
You have been missed, you always inspire me. Now I will expect to see fabulous-ness regularly!
hugs
