Today I'm posting a mixed media canvas I did for my friend Chris.
Iwanted to do this as she suffers from M.E. and sometimes struggles with day to day things due to her illness.  However she always keeps a brave face and is almost always smiley and happy.  She is a great friend to me and I did this so she could hang it in her craft room.  Hopefully it will cheer her up on the more gloomy days.  

I am  entering it into a challenge on Limor Webbers Blog which has to include a recycled house hold item.  I have used the ribbon end fluffy fused end of the netting that comes on fruit and used it as the fluffy looking centre of the large flower ( I died it and the ribbon with alcohol Inks).  Also I used the middle of a toilet roll to die cut the letters.  

I used gesso, acrylics, rub ons stamps, multimedium, inks, alcohol inks and papers etc.
I would have tried to get some unity stamps as they look great but it was too late by the time I saw the challenge.

Go to limors great blog she is very talented and has loads of you tube videos you can check out.  The link is
