WOYWW July 25th 2012

Morning WOYWW’ers and all who follow just a quick one this morning as it is stinking hot and muggy here so we haven’t slept well so my girls are grumpy and trying to kill each other over what we watch on TV this morning!
DSC02400DSC02391So not a lot happening i took this yesterday just after i had finished the canvas that is propped up; and not much has changed except that the canvas was picked up last night and the local paper has been deposited on my desk this morning!

The canvas was for a friends little girls first birthday party, She wanted a picture that could last for years and the brief was that i had to include a way to her to add family finger prints so that is why there are some bright white balloons.  I am happy  to say that she loved it and has promised to send me a picture of its new home as they move to Scotland on Friday!


Until next time

This is brilliant! I love the idea about the finger prints too and how you incorporated that request!

Hi Charlie. I love the canvas. Its no wonder the recipient was pleased. The fingerprint idea is a lovely personal touch. Great idea for a family celebration card or a scrapbook page....I think I might have to preserve a few fingerprints for prosperity! Your calm crafting space gives no hint of the grouch kids!.....How many days holiday is there left?! Happy WOYWW to you from Helen 39

Well done Charlie..there's always a moment when you wonder what they'll think of your take on the brief. TRIUMPH! Hope the day is short unless you can get them to take a nap!!

Stunning canvas, I am sure it will be treasured for years! I actually slept last night reasonably well, although did wake at one point very very hot!! Helen 6

The canvas is lovely. It intrigues me about how you did it. Did you paint this picture and then have it somehow printed on canvas from a drawing on paper? And the fingerprint additions are unique. Thanks for showing this...

I love that idea of the blank balloons being the space for fingerprints of the future!! Clever idea, I really find that touching.
Hope everyone sleeps better tonight!!
