OKAY - I love this!

I had Soooooooooooooooooooooo much fun playing with this little wall hanging. Oh my God! Right up my alley - I had a smile on my face throughout the entire creative process. Yippeee!!

These are three Canvas Houses (the largest is about 12" tall). I gessoed, painted and colorwash sprayed my canvas sheet with my Crafter's Workshop templates like you have seen me do before (cause I love doing that) then I cut the canvas up into house shapes and decorated using some string and scrap pieces of lace -- and the sewing machine. YEP!!! I am loving this whole sewing thing!

Once I had my"front faces' the way I wanted, I sandwiched a piece of cotton batting (okay, it was polyester) between it and another piece of canvas cut to size and quilted them together. Eeeeeekkkk... So much fin!

The bird was from a 7 Gypsies piece of Conservatory paper that I cut out and then transferred to a scrap piece of canvas. I then cut and sandwiched it with the batting like before and quilted it. Double Eeeeeek!!!

I have soooooo many ideas running through this brain of mine. Hum, what to create next!?!

Have a creative day everyone!
