I bought some small 3 x 3 canvases (in the clearance section) and used Tim's grunge board cut outs and paint and some adhesive. and this is what I came out with....
I painted up the canvases and inked the edges and added some stamped images to the canvases even though some of the spaces would be covered up.
painted up the grunge board and even used some mismatched chipboard alphabet letters to add some variation
the house was from Maya road and I stamped parts of the house with different stamps just to add some interest without adding any weight - those little words are stickers also from TIM HOLTZ-I used cup hooks between the canvases so they could be connected yet leave some space.
I gotta tell you that this really opened the gates for me. It set me free from my fears of trying to create exactly like the master himself and I feel awesome. Almost artsy. I know sounds totally dumb but sometimes we have those fears - fears of living up to something or someone and it keeps us from trying new things. And if this is proof of that then the outcome of taking that next step is exhilarating. I am busting through all that from now on. I can't imagine all the things I am really good at but never attempted. now the fun starts.
as Oprah would say "I just had an Ah HA moment"

I am linking this up to the following parties:
have a carefree day?
