I enjoyed making my little 'wish' canvas so much I think I'm going to turn it in to a series.  Its always good to have an odd number for a series and there are seven colours in the rainbow so I'm going to plump for seven mini canvases.  Here is number two...

This one is 40mm by 60mm - really rather diddy!!  I have used violet India ink, pearlescent medium, a stencil and a rubber stamp for the background.  I had a few offcuts of the same violet ink on some paper strips, so I cut and layered them, stapling them to each other.  I glued my paper stack on to the canvas and splattered the remaining India ink on top.

I finished off by adding a 'happy' rub on.  I think all of my canvases will have a positive rub on added.

I'm quite looking forward to my row of rainbow coloured mini canvases :)

Sharing at the playground.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oh this really is lovely Laura! The stapling really adds that something extra - great make!



  2. Love this and the colours are fab.

  3. Laura, this is so pretty! Love your idea of the 7 canvases...and the texture on this one is especially wonderful. Liked the strippy rectangular 'picture' you created over the stamped background, even the staples were dimensional. Great way to express "happy" too! Can't wait to see your next canvas. Good to see you in the Snippets Playground. TFS & Hugs

  4. Gorgeous mini canvas and a fab use of snippets. Going to look at any others you have made xx

  5. Love this idea of the seven colours of canvases. This one is so soft and pretty! The stamp you chose is perfect for this look.

  6. I couldn't work out what the fabby stitch look was. Never guessed it to be staples. I can't wait to see what you do with te other 5 colours. hugs Mrs A.

  7. Hi Laura
    What a lovely idea, to do a series of little canvases all different colours .... do you have somewhere planned to put them?

  8. This one is great too Laura! I've read about the rule of having odd numbers. So, my guess is you haven't created the orange canvas yet. I found this about the color Orange:

    Maybe Intuition might be a good word.

    1. This was great Kay, thank you so much!
      I now have a list of six words and a nearly finished canvas. I'll contemplate the words until one stands out as the best...
      Thanks for your help x
