Pieces of Me....a canvas class.

Yesterday I spent the day with a super bunch of ladies, we were at the Cardinal Colours Spring Weekend Crop. Unfortunately I could only do the one day, which was 10am til 10pm, but the other ladies are back there again today til 5pm. Over the 2 days there are various classes being held with some lovely ladies
In the afternoon I taught this class on a large 16inch canvas. We used beautiful glittered papers from My Minds Eye.

We made some large spiral roses with pearl centres, did some paper pleating and some layering of papers too.

I had a great time designing the canvas several weeks ago and it hangs in my lounge, I have to say I am really pleased with the end result and I hope my ladies in class are pleased with their ones too :)
In September Jill will be holding another Crop Weekend, this time in St Leonards, nr Hastings. If you like the sound of it then check out her website for details.

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend? Its certainly a lot warmer and more pleasant than it was yesterday xxxx


  1. Gorgeous - love the colour combo. I bet it looks brilliant in your home Anita! x

  2. Really beautiful Anita and I saw some beautiful canvases that other people had done over the weekend. Shame you couldn't come today - we had a lovely cream tea at the end.

  3. Another cracking class Anita, I loved it and so did Mum....hers is already in pride of place in her front room....mine is awaiting hanging. Thanks for the class Anita, looking forward to September already :D

  4. My daughter loved mine she is trying to get me to hang it in her bedroom! First canvas I have done and enjoyed the class x

  5. Beautiful and even more so in real life. I really enjoyed spending time with you and the girls at the weekend. Maybe we need to have a crafting 'week' to fit all the wonderful classes in and lots of free crafting time ;o)
