Poppies and Butterflies

After much thought, and a canvas whitewash....I finally realized that Auntie B's poppies weren't going to happen the way I wanted to with acrylic paints. I began with a fresh 22x38 canvas, and decided to try something else I've never done before...dry brush painting. I tend to have quite a heavy hand when I'm painting, so I thought perhaps a soft focus would do the trick. Here are the results:

I'm quite pleased with's hoping Auntie B and hubby like it ;)

I was up quite late last night scrapping this favorite pic of mine (courtesy of WN)....The photo was taken at my sister's wedding in 2006, I remember the exact moment and how I felt... he still gives me butterflies.

I purchase the new Fancy Pants collections last week and I'm hoping to get some scrapping done with the Daily Grind collection.

Cheers for now
