Dylusional Mixed Media Canvas

Where does the time go???? It has been a month since my last post....It has been an absolutely crazy few weeks.  We finally finished the store move, we packed up a bunch of old product and sent it to auction and put some more in storage.  We are still unpacking a few boxes at the new store and sorting out books and organizing. I will post a few pictures of the new store next week. We even managed to have a day off this week. 

During the last few months I really haven't had much time for crafting.  I really miss being able to make stuff so I need a substitute for crafting.  My solution for this is.....SHOPPING for craft supplies.  So I have been buying stuff for the past four months.  I'd place an order here and there and then pop by Scrap Arts to pick up some other stuff.  It's all just sitting there in my studio waiting for me!!! The only problem is when I got a chance to go in there the other day, I didn't know where to start (LOL!  what a terrible problem :).  Here are a few pics of some of the goodies.  There are more pics but some of them can wait for another post.
  Anyhow, I decided a class was the best way to get inspired...also a good way to get out for a few hours and spend some time with friends.  Whenever I want to take a class I usually head to Scrap Arts and look at all the fabulous samples.  I really liked the look of the Dylusional Mixed Media Canvas class samples and decided to give that a try.  Janni - class designer & instructor always has the best designs, ideas & tips.  We started with some collage work and then onto the dylusion sprays.  Then stencils with different mediums, inks, paints, stencils etc. and tons of different techniques.  I really had a lot of fun in this class and was quite happy with the finished project.  The canvas is 12"x 16", I'm not sure if I'll get it framed or just hang it like this.  I really love all the different textures and hidden stuff that you don't see at first.
So now that I'm all inspired and actually have some free time I might actually get some projects done and posted.  I really should have something else ready to post in a few days.  Thanks for stopping by everyone and have a fabulous weekend.
