Hi there! It's time for a new More Than Words Challenge! This month's challenge is all about:
Word: Moment
Creative Challenge: Clocks
Here are a few close ups of my canvas:
Here's my interpretation of the challenge: 
I used the word MOMENT in the sentiment 'Live in the moment'. The creative challenge inspired me to create a steampunk style canvas featuring a variety of CLOCKS and cogs:

I'm liking this to the Paint Party Friday link up:

Hope 17

Happy May! There's a new challenge up on The Mixed Media Monthly Challenge blog! This month we are asking you to create a project featuring BUTTERFLIES AND BLOOMS:
Here's a trio of close-ups of my project featuring butterflies and blooms:
I created an 8" x 8" canvas project featuring a variety of wooden embellishment butterflies along with several metal flower trinkets:
To create this project basically, I adhered strips of lace, adhered the embellishments in place, applied gesso to EVERYTHING then randomly applied various colors of acrylic paints:

I'm linking my project to Paint Party Friday:

Hi! Today I have a mixed media style canvas to share featuring a variety of beautiful Prima products including a couple of my favorite Prima resin pieces. I created the background with several stamps, gesso, a stencil and Color Bloom Sprays.
Once the background was dry, I embellished with resin pieces, die cut foliage, beautiful blossoms and wood embellishments:
