A canvas AND a tutorial from Brenda...

Hello bloggers!

You have an extra treat today because, as well as a fabulous project, Brenda has also provided a tutorial over on her own blog.  Nice one Brenda!  >:o)




I had a wonderful day in my work room creating this canvas and it consists of many of my favourite things to use - a found relatives photo, some lace, rust, film strip and lots of mixed media layers for the background. There is a tutorial on my blog if you would like to have a go at something similar.



This is stunning Brenda, thank you!!

If you aspire to create projects like this and have never attempted it then please do visit Brenda's blog, it's a source of useful tips, tricks and tutorials including this one!  (Brenda also runs workshops for Country View Crafts every 2-3 months and you can find out about these and book places HERE.)

We're hoping to see lots of entries this month as everyone has their own 'take' on shabby chic.  There is no right or wrong, there is only creativity [s].  Every entry has an opportunity of winning so please let's see what your interpretation is.

Donna will be here on Tuesday and it's her last appearance so we're hoping you'll come and show your appreciation and say goodbye to her.
