Canvas Swap

Those who attended Aida's class last Dec 2009 decided to have a canvas swap. We drew name and I got Michelle's name. I finally got to pass my canvas to Michelle last month. I love this quote alot and decided to use it on the canvas. I enjoyed the process of misting, painting with crackle paint and masking as well.

Seriously thought this hard before I began. I wanted to have a story behind the whole process of creating this canvas instead of a random one. I created a dark looking background that represents when we are down- low esteem - or simply we have no mojo. Then, I used brighter alphabet for the words to encourage our inner being that "good thing imaginable is possible". The quote is so appropriate to lift our spirit up anytime of the day! Don't you think so? Sometimes just a little thought, will make our crafty piece looks interesting!

Ok time to hit the sack. I can't wait to meet my students again :)
p.s: I heart those butterflies by Ms Martha Stewart...

Xoxo Jessy
