A new Altered Canvas and Art group day

I keep forgetting to share photos from last Fridays Art Group Day.  It was a fun day, hosted by Paula.  Paula's Daughter, and Granddaughter even got to join us.  It was such fun to get to chat with everyone. Actually I did more chatting than creating. lol   I had to work on my project at home later:)
The background "layout piece"  on my canvas was done with paper and elements from the  CD from Crafty Secrets, "Creating with Vintage Typography".  (The background on the canvas was created with Glimmer Mist).   You know me... I'm just learning things on my own as I go.. I'm no Photoshop expert by any means, but I'm finding the CD is very easy to use.  I'm loving Hybrid. I am blown away by the ability to manipulate things digitally, but I also love "goodies"  Being able to add vintage buttons, lace and other dimensional embellishments.  It's a great mix!

I thought I'd share some of the  girls canvases from Art Group day.  Each one is so unique and different from the other. All Beautiful!

Paula's Granddaughter made a canvas of her and her siblings for her mom for Mothers Day. awww

Paula's Daughter Kadi worded on this canvas for her daughters room

Some how I didn't get a photo of Jessica's, and my Photo of Stephanie's didn't turn out :(

We had lots of party favors and gifts...

and all kinds of yummy food and drink.  A good time had by all!  Thanks Paula for hosting a super fun day.


I'm  sure it will be a busy weekend for many, and I'm not sure I'll be blogging before Mothers Day again.. so I will wish all you moms, a wonderful Mothers Day now:)

(peonies from my yard... aren't they pretty?)

Ditto what Julie said,,,,what were you all drinking, looked so good! Each canvas had so much personality and so different. The picture frames will be cherished for a lifetime and beyond. Hugs and Happy Mother's Day to one of My Very Favorite Mothers!
