hi everyone
well here we are again, and iv been working on the canvases, i thought i would show you the stages so far, first i stamped the images
and cut them out....

 i did this with a few papers and cut out different bits to build up the image to give some dimension .

next, i arrange on the canvas to find the best positioning

and finally i work on the details

still so much to do on these, very time consuming but i love it, i adore all the fiddly little details, ill be working more on these over the weekend, so watch this space ....
sorry about some of the photos being a little fuzzy im not so good with a camera :)

hi everyone,
i have for the moment finished all the dt work i had, more in the pipeline as always but for now i had some time to play, so decided on a canvas, i had an idea in my head it was all pink and girly and pretty lace ect, i did the background...

decided on my images, with a little nudge from my friend Pamela who reminded me i had these wonderful stamps i went ahead and stamped the 3 images from the KanBan Jasper set, picked some papers, and went ahead with stamping again for paper piecing, i cut them out and used pro markers to add depth and shadow ect, but by the time i had finished i no longer liked them on the background .lol
i realy like this background and didnt want to lose it so out comes another canvas, paints,masks, inks ect, and a little later .....

talk about different, but thats often what happens when i start to play things evolve on their
anyway thought i would catch up with you guys and show you what im playing with right now, maybe tomorrow ill have another step to show you .
