Righto me lovelies enough waffle about that i will get on with what this post is originally about which is...a few weeks a go i decided i wanted to try something new like Art Journalling or even doing an Art Canvas so i have been getting bits in that was needed so last week i decided i wanted to have a play and have a go at doing an Art Canvas.

OMG...how scary it was but once i started to play i started to relax and just simply played with what products i had and i must admit i really enjoyed getting messy with stamps, acrylic paints, embossing powders, masks etc

Anyhoo a few of my friends and family have seen this canvas and i was over the moon with their reaction so i thought i'd be a little brave and share it with you so without further ado, here's my Art Canvas...hope you likey *smiles*

Little Claire's...Poppies Shadow Box

Hello me lovelies

Anyhoo i thought i'd give a go and to be honest i thought it was easy to follow...thanks Kerry!!

The image i have used for my shadow box is a Little Claire's 'Poppies' stamp which i think it's absolutely beautiful and as poppies are usually red i just thought i'd go for red and white theme which i think is just perfect for this image as the red will just pop.
