So to continue transforming from something I don't like into something I do like, I took the above play canvas and tweeked it some more with Golden interference paint and cut it up for ATC's. I added some embossed metal, stamped metal hearts and funky yarn. All this to participate in an ATC trade with ELK who's art you really need to check out.
Mary, sent me some punchanella after I asked if she knew any place in town that carries it. She sent not just one but two different kinds. I can't wait to play with it although at the moment it is so pretty and shiney. I actually can see using some as an element somewhere. We shall see.
