My first canvas!

So, I joined the Art Society over at Christy Tomlinson place.  It is a monthly art club.  This is my first project....take a gander!


I thought it would be fun to some "me" art.  I have really not done anything latterly that is just for fun.  I love Christy's work and all her amazing backgrounds that she creates are so creative and colorful....just love that!


The process is really fun and I am learning so many neat things.  This months project was to take an old canvas that you had lying around and create this overlay type of design by sketching it out, painting in the negative space then adding in finishing touches with pens, markers, stamps, rub ons...etc.

The possibilities are endless.  I want to make a huge one for over my fireplace. But, for now I am sticking to small manageable ones so I can learn more of the technique.



You can check out Christy's blog here.  Have a great day everyone!

New Paper Corsages and Boutineers

Hi Everyone,

Thought I would pop in and show you some of the latest paper corsages and boutonnieres that I have been creating in my studio.


 A paper mum accented with silver glitter and a large rhinestone center.


A silver and clear rhinestone accent add some "POP" to this wrist corsage.  The black rolled flowers add an extra touch and create a dainty feel to this bright and fun piece.



Purple and gold complement each other in this piece.


The chosen flowers here were ranunculus.  Gold daisy like flowers accented with purple/gold rhinestones.



The matching boutonniere.


For information on ordering your one of kind piece please contact me at maryfrances@townisp.com. No two are alike.  Each piece is hand made by me to match your dress or color scheme.
