Inspired by a piece of wrapping tissue...

Amazing-mixed-media-canvas-for-LESSology

Hello there friends! Hope the year 2016 has been amazing to you so far. Today I'm sharing a 6x6 mixed media canvas for LESSology Challenge #54: Candy Land


I don't know about you but I have a hard time throwing things out. I want to keep EVERYTHING in my "save-it-for-a-rainy-day" box [actually, I have 3!]. Like this lovely black wrapping tissue with floral print that came in the box with my Betsey Johnson shoes. What can I say? At least after two years, the wrapping tissue has been utilized? *LOL* [The shoes are ridiculously high platforms that I like to admire from time to time...*winks*]


And that tacky bracelet from OPI was just the right amount of pink bling on my canvas. The green bling was from an old choker.

Yvonne, now I know that we ARE sisters in the universe of crafting. I save the same kind of stuff; this totally annoys my family. Love the color palette of this project and I would definitely buy a purse if looked just like it. Keep crafting and making me smile....please!
