Pencil Lines #95 - Ifa Zainon

This week, Ifa Zainon is guesting for us. How adorable is she? I had a blast! Please visit Pencil Lines for more beautiful works from the other girls. They're simply fab!

We are sponsored by the fabulous Riff Raff!! Boy oh boy, I visited their Etsy shop and just fell in love with the possibilities! So many designs, and a thousand ideas floating in my mind! Thank you Riff Raff!!

I did my work on canvas for Sketch #95, totally inspired by Ashley Calder! And even if I say so myself (*grins*) I think this canvas is yumminess! (Thanks to Indah, I'm can't get the word "yumminess" out of my head). I played with paint, UTEE, glimmer mist, bubble wrap, crackle paint, glossy accent, liquid pearl and my old and forgotten heat gun. LOL. Seriously, that fella is so under utilised!

Some close ups.


The tree chipboard - crackle painted, swapped with some inks, and UTEE-ed.


Prima alpha chipboards - smeared with some liquid pearl. I used my fingers. To say I enjoyed finishing up the canvas, is an understatement. I don't think there's a word for it, actually! LOL!

The heat gun is still on my table, actually. So fun is still to be had. Hope I will be able to share more projects with you soon!! I'll leave you with a beautiful quote I got in my inbox a few days ago, courtesy of Quotations Book.

Happiness... is not a destination: it is a manner of traveling.
Happiness is not an end in itself. It is a by-product of working,
playing, loving and living. ~ Haim Ginott

This is so gorgeous! Is the canvas stretched on a wooden frame? I can't tell if it's just a flat piece of canvas or if it's framed.
