Loved the use of the feathers in the card, and the color choices were great. The canvas is stunning! I love the way you photographed it so we could really see the detail. Beautiful work.

  58. Wow Sonia! Amazing projects! i love the sparkly dots on your cards. That wall art is fabulous! I am an oil painter so I have lots of canvas - just never thought to use it for anything but paint :) Thanks for the inspiration!

    As for future challenges, I am just looking forward to having time to actually participate! I started blog hopping just about the time I started working on my daughter's school play. We start in January and as Props/STage manager/assistant director, I have very little time for anything else until the middle of March when the performances actually take place so now at the beginning of April, I am recuperated enough and ready to get to my craft room! I would like to make something special for our director of the play but not really sure what so I will be glad to have any kind of challenge to give me some inspiration :) Sorry to have written a book in answer to your question :)
