PAINT... it's Good for the SOUL!

4x6 board canvas using Unity stamps by Phyllis Harris
This week I have been allowing myself to "Just Paint".... sounds easy doesn't it... but I have an irrational fear of paint... my heart starts to pound and I break out into a sweat as soon as I open the bottle!  But if I LET myself Just Paint I end up in my Happy Place!  Sometimes it takes a glass of wine to turn off "THAT VOICE" and just do it... but it's totally worth it if I do...

8x8 stretched canvas using Unity Stamps by Susan K. Weckesser
Here is some of what I allowed myself to create this week using a combination of canvases, acrylic & watercolor paints and some of my favorite Unity Stamps...
6x6 board canvas & Phyllis Harris' Unity Stamp set

I stamped my images using Archival brand waterproof ink and painted them using my watercolors... 

8x8 stretched canvas & Susan K. Weckesser's Unity Stamps
 I painted my backgrounds using acrylic craft paint and/or gelatos and just let myself be FREEE...

My FAVORITE, a 6x8 stretched canvas and Susan K. Weckesser's Unity stamp set
I then cut out my stamped images and used modpodge and pop foam pop dots to adhere them to my canvases..... REALLY! I just love the effect and I hope you do too!! 

NOTE:  All these canvases are for sale at our new little Artists' Co-op shop in Water Valley, Alberta.. contact me by e-mail or facebook if you are interested! (grin)
