The one about the new canvases

My canvases came today! I had ordered 20 canvases from Blick. They are having a sale to get rid of the old style Blick canvases. So I got a pack of ten 16x20 and ten 6x12. I like to work BIG!


I started this piece a couple weeks ago but had to put it aside for some deadlines----I can't wait to get back to it before I forget was I was doing. lol Its a little bigger than 12x12 done on a scrapbook album cover. The album had come apart and I was going to throw it away, but decided I could collage on it instead. I have also saved a few shoebox lids. Help me! I've become a pack rat!
