Oops... I didn't get to share that awesome technique with you yesterday... let's just say children were being "needy", however I will share it with you tomorrow. First up, I wanted to share the story of this canvas with you.
I'd gotten to the stage where it was pretty much finished and just needed some words, but I just couldn't think of anything that suited her. Most of the sayings on my canvases just come out of my head - half the time they are messages to myself. :) Anyway, I couldn't think of anything so I put a post on my facebook page asking for suggestions (and I got some great ones).
Now that I had some choices for words, I pulled out my trusty old letter stickers and set to work... but do you think I could make them work?? No. They either didn't go with the canvas or I was missing letters that I needed (anyone got any spare e's floating around??). The only letters that I liked on there for the main word was my old Heidi Swapp letters. But with no a, e or r that ruled out most words that I could think of. So at about 11pm, I wrote down all the letters I DID have and went to sit in bed and try and figure out a word. On the way, I grabbed an old notebook I have with quotes in it for when I get stuck like this.
The first quote in that book - "A loving heart is the truest wisdom." Yippee... I had those letters! So here she is all finished... it seems she ended up picking her OWN words. :)
Thanks for stopping by! And cool technique coming tomorrow....
