Canvas Inspired by Spring

And also a chance to use my new PaperArtsy stamp.  I think my canvas may just suit the following three challenges:-


The Stamp Man's challenge #17 where Sue is asking to see our swirls and curls.  My swirls and curls are from Inkadinkadoo and have been stamped in midnight blus Stazon onto tissue paper and then adhered with PVA glue.

The Just for Fun blog has a new overriding theme for the month which is to try something different and this week's specific brief is "Mixed Media".  Okay so my canvas has inked text from a book, and stamping on tissue paper.  Think this may just qualify.  

The Artistic Stamper has a challenge running for the month"SPRING".  My canvas is entitled "My World is Full of Colour" so as Spring is the season where all the colour starts returning I think its been inspired by Spring.

I have also used a spiral torn from a notebook and small silver charms, which I have dabbed with acrylic dabbers.  I love texture - I also sort of plan to keep it smooth and elegant but it just doesnt seem to work for me.  The more random the better for me!

I also would like to say welcome to my new followers especialy when there are so many fabulous blogs out there - blogging is an art in itself dont you think (another milestone is approaching albeit slowly lol)? I am honoured that people are interesting in my bits n bobs. :)
