Can you make me something!


Had to have a little down time following our weekend workshop.  Looking forward now to the Melt Pot weekend coming up in October and then two more workshops to plan and prep for in Jan and Feb.  All good stuff!!

One of my colleagues daughter is 16 in September and he asked me if I could "make Something".  Don't you just love them words, NOT.  Fills me with utter dread to make a commission, as the kind of stuff I like doing is definitely a bit out there at times for non crafty people. BUT never one to not take up a challenge I set about "making something".

There were a couple of pre-requisites

1 Must include the infinity symbol
2, Must include one of her favourite sayings (which just happens to be a Tim Holtz stamp)

So with an otherwise blank canvass I set about making the "something"!

Went a little crazy with the Idea-ology me thinks!

The sides were meant to be checker board but change my mind

Adore how this Grungeboard heart came out using Distress paints

Infinity Symbol

The favourite saying is I think from a Disney film." a dream is a wish your heart make".  The little bottle I have left empty so they can slip a little message in there for her.

When I finished it I was like OTT even for me, but it is growing on me................

Thanks for stopping by Tuck Towers, until the next time

  1. This is very very cool, Sue. I love the black and white! She will love it!

  2. Hi Sue, you've been busy at Tuck Towers and I love your canvas as I'm sure the young lady receiving it will love it too. The close up photos show the detail really well and I love the effect you've made on the sides. Hope you have a great weekend. Debbie

  3. It's a fab commission! You can never have too much idea-ology anyhoo, the more the merrier for me! I love your edges too. Great canvas Sue, she's gonna love it. Michelle x
