Finally for now another canvas, this one is much smaller and features my Goddaughter Isla, i applied tissue paper to the canvas with gel medium then painted over it in various shades of green, ithen used blond moments flower stamps on patterned paper and the fairy body itself is made from grunge paper painted with ink. The picture of her head is a bit big but i still think its cute!
The next picture is a printers tray from 7gypsies, again i used dylusions pains and inks on water colour paper to make the backgrounds, the dylusions stamps coloured in with the inks for the images, there are alos some Tim Holtz goodies on there too, this is one of my favourite pieces and hangs proudly in my craft room,
Well i promised you some photos of my creations and here they are. These are just a few of the things i have made over the past few months, note the lack of cards please!

The first is a 24" canvas i made, it actually started life as a black background with a flower on it that i picked up cheap in a sale. The canvas was covered with gesso then i used dylusions paint and inks and a crafters worskshop template to create the design. I think the colours are lovely (well it is pink!) and i seem to be strangely drawn to orange at the moment. I used a book page for the heart and some sticky back canvas to print the sentiment out on.
