Frames & Canvas

Hi there!  Just wanted to post a few pics of some of things I've been working on.  I've had these blank wooden frames from Ikea forever.  I painted them purple and white and just went from there.  The Tim Holtz canvas needed some decorating too.  I never have a plan, I just kind of fly by the seat of my pants when crafting.  That's probably why I don't like going to scrapbooking crops.  The planning on what I want to work on completely stresses me out!  The frames consist of an inked up Altoid tin and a window frame from a dollhouse.  Can you tell that I'm totally in love with purple right now?

I'm the same when it comes to crafting -- fly by the seat of my pants. I don't like to have to follow any guidelines. Just go with whatever strikes my fancy at the time. The frames and collages look great. Have a wonderful weekend. Tammy

Hi Kelly, I am "by the seat of my pants" and "on a wing and prayer" type of artist too...hey our best works comes out that way! I rarely get rid of things knowing that someday I will find the perfect project for it--is that pack ratting?? LOL
Anyway, I LOVE what you created--the composition and textures are stunning!
