Canvas Wristlet....

Here's a great gift idea.  You can give it just decorated or even use an ATC coaster album in it for a great gift.  I used Maya Mist to watercolor mine and added trim and dangles.  It was so easy and quick and I think it turned out great.  First I wet the whole thing with a spray bottle then I used a mask to get the detail, any mask you like will do. I then used my watercolor brush and dipped it into mist and brushed the color where I wanted it, if I wanted the color to look more washed out I added more water, or you can add more color.

WOW!!!  I am really going to work on posting more often, I promise.  Let's see I am going to shoot for at least once a week. 

Here is a project I did for CHA and the Maya Road booth.  I am so blessed to be able to play with there stuff and have lots of fun doing it.  I love working CHA with them we laugh so much, it is a lot of work but we know how to make it fun at the same time.  Poor David being stuck with all those women, between you and me I think he loves it.  Ok I got off track there here is the project.  I did the bird house Home Tweet Home here is a list of items from Maya Road I used.
