Twyla on Tuesday

Hello my lovlies!
You know the loneliest time for me
is when I've finished the newest Where Women Create
I read every single word!
The only magazine that I do.
I couldn't help but spread out my collection and
photograph them.

So much inspiration packed into 160 pages!

I like to stretch myself artistically sometimes
and was inspired to do an altered canvas project.
I started out with a 12" x 16" canvas and Mod Podged
random phonebook pages to the canvas.
When it was dry, I painted with my acrylic
craft paints in colors that were pleasing to me.
At this point, I thought it looked like a good background 
for a landscape, but decided on another route.

I looked through my scrapbook paper and chose colors
that 'agreed' with my canvas and started cutting out shapes
that were intended to be flowers and a vase.

It was great fun creating this.  I think projects that
take you out of your comfort zone are good for you
and this was a beautiful day to create something pretty.

I wish you could see how pretty the colors are on
this.  I am already planning my next one!
Thanks for visiting!
It is always nice to share a bit of my
world with you!
Love, Twyla

Aren't craft magazines the best, love them. Your canvas is great -well done!

Oh Twyla, that is truly lovely. I love your color choices and the fact that you used realistic flower shapes as well as geometrical ones is really a neat idea. You can definitely tell that you are growing as an artist, especially when trying new things. Keep it up sweet lady.

This is really great! Good for you to go outside your comfort zone.

I love, love, love that magazine. Bought one last summer and now have the recent one my friend brought back this summer. I have only glanced through it as I want to find time to actually sit and savor each and every page and image. Your inspired collage is absolutely gorgeous! Have a great rest of the week. Tammy

Beautiful, love the work of your hands! I adore just about all the Stampington mags; so invaluably full of creative ideas.

Where Woman Create is a wonderful magazine. I have a few copies myself... so inspirational.
The altered canvas is beautiful. Thanks for showing us what you did and how you did it.

I always save my favorite creative magazines and then look through them time and time again. I see new inspiration every time I look. Your canvas is precious. Love the soft muted colors. Blissful week to you...
