No, not John Lennon's song, but my altered canvas.

Today was another Sue Roddis workshop at the Cubby Hole and it was another altered canvas this week, using pegs and stamps (amongst other things). No real new techniques this time, but more learning about colour and texture, and this is the result. I've also picked up some Tim Holtz grunge board shapes this week as I managed to get in before the vultures :)

After the mojo rush of last weekend I've hit a blank patch again. I've got a CJ and 2 cards to get done in the next couple of days, and several other projects which are all getting closer to the deadline. Just to add to the pressure I've got 2 long weekends away this month so even less time to work on things. Oh well, it'll all come good, one way or another.

Good news this week. I've received an amazing 'Wheel of the Year' journal from a friend, with some amazing work in it. The one I'm working on is only 3/4 complete, so that's another project that needs me to get a shift on. Once I've got it on the way and she's happy with it, I'll maybe post some excerpts from the one I received, but for now it stays under wraps.

Night all, I'm off to try and find my mojo, but if it doesn't turn up I'll console myself with wine, chocolate and 70's glam rock :)


  1. Ooooh Love the canvas :-) An altered canvas is still on my 'attempt to do list' So love the way you have used the pegs, very clever indeed.
