Fabric ModPodge Canvas Art

007

back in june, while spending a lazy sunday morning with some broads, crafting & just hanging out, i busted out a canvas art. this particular Tree post by craftapple caught my fancy about 2 years ago, taunting me to make one too. and when i sat down that warm morning, intent on doing something, i must've been on crack when i looked thru my stash of fabric. the blue with white polka dots? made me think of clouds but when i modpodge'd it to death on canvas, it ended up looking like SNOW. SNOW IN JUNE. wtf was i thinking?

as a result, when the piece finally dried, i kept it under my desk until the weather chilled. and now with a blank spot on my wall, i finally put it up.

currently listening: Mindy Smith

for this week's blog shout out, i bring you With Bear Hands, written by my friend & fellow Joy Luck Club member Bear. be a doll & check her out, often. you'll realize the type of company i keep: the guffaw-inducing kind.

also, you'll notice on the right side bar i've added two new things: Cold Weather Food and Cold Weather Yarn... just a list of some of my fave comfort foods to keep warm, as well as some projects i've done during the cooler months. it's not a complete list but you get the picture.

last, i've re-opened my twitter for public viewing, not that i ever tweet anything of value.

have a loverly weekend.

  2. Lanny! Wow that painting is AMAZING.Are the little people a part of it too? :) Who cares if you painted snow in June?! Go with your inspiration. My inspiration right now is bacon so I'm going to eat breakfast. Thanks for the shoutout :)))

  3. Looks like a nice wintery scene to me? Barren tree. Big snow drift.

    Umm, let me guess, you like Alias and NCIS? What do you think of NCIS: LA? I'm not really feeling it, but I work late on Tuesdays so the regular NCIS is pretty much over by the time I get home.

  5. Wendi, it's all about multi-tasking... i try to craft at the same time as when i'm socializing or watching tv... to me,there is always time to do what i enjoy, everything else can fall to the wayside.

    <3 you silly bear... speaking of bacon, i'm fiddling with a bacon jam recipe, inspired by you! stay tuned.

    chi wc, it is rather perfect for the coming months, will have to modpodge a spring/summery sceen soon. and yes, i loved Alias and i love me some NCIS (that Mark Harmon!)... not so much NCIS:LA...

    craftapple, thanks so much for the inspiration!
