Hello all! I'm back again with this super fun mixed media canvas.. I was feeling a little blue, and needed some bright colors and tried some fun new techniques.. I used paint, ink, stamps, texture paste, and of course Linnie Blooms Mixed Media Heart Shape!! I love how I turned the heart into a balloon so my cares and worries could float away ;) .. I used acrylic paint to color the balloon and embellished  with a rosette trim and twine..  A quote, some doodeling, and a few highlights finished it off.. I love how the Linnie Blooms Shapes can easily be altered and colored to fit any style and project :)

You can find all these wonderful canvas pieces at the links below.. Also be sure to check out Linnie Blooms on facebook for all the latest projects and new items!!

Ahhh.. A Glimpse Of Fall!

Hello Everyone!! Here in Indiana, the trees are starting to change, the fields are almost ready to harvest, and the crisp fresh air tickles your nose.. I absolutely love this time of the year! Hoodies, comfy socks, hot chocolate, and Bonfires!!!

I made this cute card and envelope set using Linnie Blooms canvas shapes.. The card is set on a simple craft card stock, layered with a piece from the My Minds Eye "Darling Dear" 6x6 paper stack..  I lightly distressed the Linnie Blooms small canvas blank with Tim Holts distress ink "Vintage Photo" as well as Linnie Blooms Pocket shape... Layered those on top of my card base.. Added some fall flowers, buttons and ribbons.. Used a few Tim Holtz tickets to add into my pocket..

The envelope is made from wide Jute trim I purchased from Hobby Lobby, I just cut, folded, and glued the sides with hot glue.. SOOO SIMPLE! I topped it off with a Linnie Blooms Flower shape, sprayed with Inkadinkado Spray Ink in Terra Cotta, a Linnie Blooms Leaf shape (colored with green acrylic paint)  and added a wooden button and twine.. WaaaaLaaa!!!!!!! Now I have a beautiful card and envelope, ready to wish a special someone with warm fall wishes :)
