Guided by the Pattern... and a Video!

I recently worked up a little mixed media canvas to give as a baby gift. By using the design of a patterned paper to guide this piece... I was able to complete this canvas in no time!

I just love how using that larger pre-printed design as the inspiration and starting point of this art piece, allowed me to craft up a special gift with great ease!
So, the next time you want to try your hand at a bit of mixed media art play... grab a patterned paper and let it guide you!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend! Remember... Saturday is (Inter)National Scrapbooking Day and I have a special post going up at the Simon Says Stamp Blog. Be sure to check it out!
