First, may I just say that Helmar products are some of the best quality adhesive products I have used in my papercrafting. I now reach to my Helmar stash FIRST when starting a new project. I especially love the scrap dots product, which I used to adhere the flowers to my project below.
But back to Tracy ... if you haven't participated in one of her Monday night Ustream videos, you really MUST stop in sometime soon and check it out. She has such a great sense of humor, and shares her artistic talents with all of us as well as providing encouragement for us to take the plunge and try something new and outside our comfort zones. I will be the FIRST to admit that I have no real artistic talent when it comes to anything involving paint. My first and last attempt at art was a paint-by-number set I completed back when I was eleven. I just never felt that comfortable with a brush in my hand. But I am now inspired to create even more canvas artwork ... it's more fun than a box of legos!
Here's a photo of Tracy's project, which you can watch her create here: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/18528213 (note: you might have to join Ustream to view the video, but it is SO worth it!) And be sure to check back EVERY Monday night for new projects! Tracy sure puts the fun back into Mondays!
Isn't this so very lovely??!! And check out some of her earlier projects on Ustream and her blog as well!!
And ... drum roll please ... here's a photo of MY first canvas project (click to enlarge):
