Journey ~ Canvas Create January 2012

Saturday, February 25, 2012
I tried to remember the first time I came across to Donna Downey's blog, but I couldn't. All I can remember are ..I  LOVE her style and herself in person.  She's the coolest and most talented artist. She's funny and a free-spirited person. Love her!! I hope one day...I get to meet her.

Every Wednesday, she releases a new 'inspiration' video. I learn a lot and I'm ready to give this new adventure a try..., let me back up a little bit. Donna Downey is a Mixed Media artist. She works with lots of different mediums, canvases, acrylic paints, watercolors, stamps {the list goes on and on}. Now, on the other hand, I'm new and not really familiar with this mixed media. I LOVE paints and stencils and that kind of things...but I have never ever tried the techniques Donna uses.

This past January, she launched a new club called "Canvas Create" 2012. Basically, it's a month to month tutorial and learning experience.

I decided to join...and although a little bit's my canvas for January,

It doesn't look anything like Donna's Canvas...but's mine and I'm totally psych about this :D LOL {can you tell the excitement..}

Seriously, at first...I didn't know what I was doing. I was confused. And I remember what Donna said...'don't think about it...just do it!!!'

Anyway, here's some more pictures.

For this canvas, I picked the word 'JOURNEY'. My daily life is a journey, and when I decided to learn this mixed's a new, that is the reason I used the word 'journey'.

I've received and watched the material/tutorial for February Canvas. It's another exciting one. I can't wait to get started...I just need to buy a couple of things.

Well, thanks for letting me share my new adventure with you all. Let me know what you think. I enjoy reading your thoughts. Have a wonderful weekend.
