Welcome to my mess. If you look .. you can see that it is a colourful mess. It happens. Both these canvas pieces, I found in a thrift shop. Both I brought home with the intent to recycle. How I would end up recycling tho’ I had not predicted.
I was looking for something rather specific for another canvas I had been working on, and it turned out that the tail on one of the birds was perfect for what I wanted. I pulled the canvas off the frame, and ripped it into pieces to get the piece I wanted.
Lo and behold I found that it was a very satisfying sound, the ripping of the old, dried canvas, and every more pleasing was the discovery that I really had myself some great pieces to do some unusual cards. So today when I found this other canvas with the paint splatter all over. There was something about it that drew me.. it was too busy for my taste, but I saw possibilities. For a few dollars it came home with me.
Once again I found myself delighting in the sound of tearing canvas. and … Now, I have a mess on my desk. I know, I just know. I really do… that these pieces are going to come in handy. At what .. I don’/t know yet. I’ll keep you posted.
Meanwhile.. I’m a very contented camper. I’ve ripped, torn, and pulled apart a canvas, finished a super special card, found a piece that is perfect for my “escape” canvas… and the day is not done. How lucky can one person be. =^_^=
Now that the mess is made, and I’ve recorded it for ??? I can pack up the pieces and put them away for another day.
Happy happy happy, every one..
