She pursued big realities

I've been working on this canvas for about a week, and am really happy with how it turned out.  I've been inspired by Julie Fei-Fan Balzar and have signed up for her Stencil 101 class.  I can hardly wait for my stencils to arrive, but I've been trying out her techniques and playing around with canvas.

The saying is really very meaningful to me, and I've chosen a Tiddly Inks digi stamp to use with it.  I've used acrylic paints, tissue paper for texture, modge podge, Papertreyink alpha stamps, stazon ink, and glossy accents, along with my copics and a sakura clear sparkle pen.

It's going to be displayed in my classsroom sometime this year.  It's my canvas/inspiration display I'm working on.

Thanks for popping by.
