Hi there! I hope you are having a great weekend! Today I have a couple of projects to share. First up is a 16" x 20" canvas that I painted. I'm practicing so I can paint a couple of 24" x 36" canvas's for my home. 
 To begin, I collaged pages from an old Webster's dictionary onto the canvas:
 then I had a lot of fun painting the background and poppies:
I also made a card in celebration of fall featuring a PTI Friendship Jar full of Fall goodness:
For color inspiration for both projects, I joined along with the current Colour Me challenge:
For card sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge:
Many thanks for stopping by ~ I hope you have a great week!
