“I'll try anything once, twice if I like it, three times to make sure.”

So I'm looking at some of my favorite blogs.And I come across this.
I'm thinking  I could do this.
I looked through my collection of 'stuff I buy on sale just in case'.
I found exactly what I needed and went about creating.
What a great way to spend the day.
A perfect way to wind down after all the Yom Tov festivities.

First I found a canvas. Yep I only paid $3.50.

Then I used this wonderful quote from a book I bought in a thrift shop.
My daughter was reading it the other day and got a kick out of this particular one.
The author  has a website  with all kinds of interesting things.
Transformed the canvas to this.
I love the way it came out.
Especially for a first try.
Thanx ELSIE.
(My first scrapbook crush.)

 And put it on a shelf to display.

I could see myself doing this again.
How about you?
Are you willing to try it?
If you have any questions on how to do it give me a call write me an e-mail.

You are one very talented woman; discovered your blog and took some time to go through the visuals of your creations.
Time, patience, a good eye, and a good "kop" for creativity are no doubt your best tools.
Will visit again.
