I have a girlfriend named Tish, who I met through The Scrapbook Cottage where I work. She is an artist. A very talented one too. She makes the most vibrant, and beautiful art journals. She knows how to rock Gesso, and paint, and black pens, like no one else I know. Tish graciously took some time out of her schedule to share a little bit of her knowledge with me.
I wanted to create a canvas. I had never done one before, but read a scripture verse that I really wanted to hang somewhere. Shortly after finding the verse, I received a card kit in the mail, that I blogged about here. In the kit was this fabulous wood veneer bird. I knew I wanted that bird on a canvas. Then along came a Scrapbook Nook kit full of the newest My Mind's Eye Indie Chic Collection. Suddenly I had all the primary ingredients, now all I needed was the teacher. That's where she comes in.

It now sits in my living room. Thank you Tish for helping me to make my vision a reality. I have a feeling, this won't be the only canvas I create.
