Here it is!  The last in my series of mini canvases.

I used oil pastels, art bars, acrylic inks, acrylic paints, thread and snippets of washi and paper that were hanging around my desk!

The orange was probably the most fun to make but the least fun to name.  In fact I asked for help and Kay kindly pointed me to a page about orange and things associated with the colour.  From there I got it down to a short list and sat for ages wondering which was best.  I decided on create, the page mentioned creative flair.  I'm still not sure it is right!

They are sitting all lined up on my picture shelf.  They are dinky and really rather cute but  still pack a punch all together.

What do you think?

Kinda sorta want to do more in the in between shades of colour...

Thanks for stopping by :)


  1. Love the orange. They look great together. Trying to visualise if you had used the same size canvases would it be more or less striking. I would have tended to pick one size so I really like that you have the different sizes and orientations. Maybe on the in beween colours, but you do have the power number 7, the colours of the rainbow and chakra and those powerful words. I think it's a lovely set as is. Great wall art. Off to check out the other posts.

  2. Hi Laura,

    They look great! Glad the link could help you out.


  3. Lovely now they are all together.

  4. Wow! these are just fabulous Laura, especially all together like that. Have you seen Summer of Color over at ? I think you would like it :o)

DMIO: Teach Me Something

A few weeks back I made a dream catcher.  A few readers asked if I could show them how I made it, so, here is my attempt at a tutorial! First up weaving the web. 1. You'll need a hoop and some ribbon/thread/yarn on a bobbin. 2. Attach the ribbon securely to your hoop. 3. Take your ribbon over the top of the hoop... 4. and up through the loop you've just made with the ribbon... 5. so you have a cross over. 6. Continue steps 3-5 until you reach the knot. 7. Now instead of going over the hoop you will crossover the ribbon 8. and through the loop you've just made to give a crossover. Continue on in this fashion until you get to the middle. You need to leave a hole in the middle as this is where the good dreams get through!  They then run down the tassels/feathers/any other hanging decoration and on to the owner.  It should look something like this.  You'll need to play around with your tension until you get a firm web. Now for the tassels - I like to

A Poe Quote

So I've been trying out art journalling for a while but had nothing that I wanted to share, until now. I was inspired by The Bears Challenge and picked this quote to base my page on. "If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered" I got some paints out, some spray mists too.  I used my fan brush, my fingers and a cotton rag.  I got messy, satisfyingly messy :) The letters are some old letraset vinyls that were my Aunt's.  When we cleared my Grandparents house I couldn't stand the art goodies to go to waste.  I saved them because I knew one day I would find a use for them.  They must be 40 years old but are still perfect.  (I sometimes look at things I get today and think they won't still be good in 5 years let alone 40!) I don't have the complete alphabet so there are some adaptations... c's became o's, E's became t's, w's became m's.  I magicked a k from a P!  Some
