Magnolia canvases

Thank you to everyone who commented yesterday when I said I was losing followers. I felt better realising I wasn't alone!!!!. I guess people do follow when you offer candy and then leave when it is finished. So. I am REALLY APPRECIATIVE of ALL OF YOU who are loyal followers. I hope I am the same to you. If I am not please let me know.
I have just come back from a friends funeral. She used to come to my card classes. There were 360 in attendance and it was a very positive service with all her family and friends there. Denise, you will be greatly missed.
I thought I would show one of the projects I entered for the Magnolia Ink magazine. I entered 5 times altogether. How sad am I?!
Of course I didn't win but I thought you might like to see what I did.
I bought some mini canvases from Hobbycraft ( 4 for £2.99 i think). I stamped straight onto them and then coloured the images with Promarkers. On this canvas I have also done some decoupage. I will post the other 2 canvases tomorrow.

If you get the chance to comment I would love to know wht you think of them
Love sarah XXX

  2. Oh I love this! What a brilliant idea, it`s absoutely super cute!!

  3. Hi Sarah

    Wow this is amazing! You should have won as this is FAB!! I never thought about stamping straight onto canvas an thought the promarkers would bleed. Definitely have to try this one myself.

    So sorry to hear about your friend Denise, sounds like she was a much loved and popular lady who will be missed by many.

    Take care aand glad you are feeling better about your blogging followers.

  4. Hi What a fab idea. Look forward to seeing some more. Jeanette

  5. Hi Sarah
    I too had a few followers leave after blog candy, I guess your right, don't worry, you are not alone
    I love the canvas you put together!! real 3-D effect:-) Love it:-) really lovely job on it

  6. Awesome work Sarah.

    I got some canvases months ago, my hubby gessoed them ready and they still sit in a cupboard - story of my life with crafty things.

    Good intentions and all that, but demo and display samples plus DT work always seem to fill my time. Something for my retirement perhaps - do crafter retire, I doubt it.
