my first 12x12 canvas page


With special thanks to Tania for letting me scrap this beautiful pic of her & her DD ! 
I've had this 12x12 canvas screenprint for a while & didn't quite know what I wanted to do with it ! 

& then I saw how Donna Downey created a coupla scrap pages with 'em recently 
& decided to try a little Donna Downey style on this one . 


I misted on the background closer to the edges with my own blue mist .
 & used GM Lemon Meringue in the center. 
 I painted some of the Prima florals with Shimmerz Blingz to add more color & 
that special shimmerz to them. 
The quote is also taken from one of Donna's art pages perhaps .

Gotta love the Shimmerz Blingz  here - it's so different from using say Stickles -
 you get to control the color as much as you want & the overall effect can be so elegant .
