Learn from Yesterday, Live for Today, Hope for Tomorrow

Hello and welcome to a brand new year! 

And  what an exciting one I am sure it is going to be. 
I thought this quote was quite apt .....

and thought I would use it as part of my first project of the year and have it as my mantra for the year to come.

We have a brand new challenge for you over at Country View Challenges and you will be pleased to hear that it is 


And so for this first project I gathered some favourite bits and pieces and made this small art panel also using some of my favourite techniques.

Texture Paste in the Corners
Torn Text Paper
Gorgeous colours : ColourArte Caribbean Blue and Autumn Leaves

A bit of painting with the ColourArte Powders and gesso
Spritzing here and there

Painting the fabulous ColourArte colours on the flowers and ribbon 

All such fabulous fun!

I do hope you will join us for our challenge this month and just have fun just as I have done.  Click the link HERE for all the details and some fabulous pieces from the rest of the DT -  there are so many different styles to inspire you!

Thank you for joining me today and whatever you do have a great crafting year!

Very apt quote on this New Year morning! And what a lovely canvas... the background with the powders is gorgeous and Vintagey, perfect foil for the beautiful embellishments.
Happy New Year!
