Affirmation Canvas Challenge:
My friend Marilyn,
http://wwwmarilyninmyroom.blogspot.com/
is having a challenge on her blog.

From the inspiration of Kelly Rae Roberts
http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=46872
Kelly Rae does ffffffantastic collages and was recently published in Cloth Paper Scissors with a fantastic tutorial of how she does her process and we were challenged by Marilyn to attempt something similar! I really enjoyed this tremendously! We are swapping canvases 1 for 1 and this is the one I created to send to Marilyn for the challenge!

I have used collaging of papers, paint and hand drawing, not something I usually do, but then that is what a challenge is! :0)

It really was great fun and I am not sure if I am completely done yet, but she is resting while I think on it! Hope you enjoy seeing this and the affirmation statements are joyful to express as well! This was a fun challenge! Hugs,Patti

Patti!! You are amazing! You can do anything! I LOVE what you did for my Blog challenge. Kelly Rae certainly has inspired so many. Her techniques are wonderful and we're making them our own. Your figure is perfect; she's so expressive and alive with emotion. I love your background, colors, and I'm so happy you found this challenge a joy. That is exactly what I wanted it to be. :)

Pati!!! I love it!!! you draw soooo beautifully, I can feel the emotion of this woman- one can see it in her face!! How did you do that???? I love the turquoise touches that you put in at the end- it really makes everything pop and the affirmations are just perfect!! i have been thinking of you all day with the weather reports. At least you can move snow out of the way, water would be much more intrusive, so I am grateful that you are not being flooded out!!!!
I am not sure that Marilyn is going to be able to swap out any of these canvases!!! would have a hard time giving this one up for sure. I will cross my fingers and hope that it comes MY way!!!!
Hugs!!
