No Day But Today – 12 x 12 canvas Mixed Media piece


Here is another mixed media piece that I created on a 12 x 12 canvas…I used both of my March Scraps of Darkness and March Scraps of Elegance kits together to create this.  My inspiration for this was from a gift bag that I unearthed in my great Studio clean-up of 2012 🙂 as well as an Owl based assignment from the on-line Art Journaling class that I am currently taking called The Art of Wild Abandonment!

the Scraps of Elegance March kit is full of beautiful BoBunny Country Garden papers (used one for the background here & the tree) and the Scraps of Darkness March kit is full of the amazing Graphic 45 Old Curiosity shoppe (used in my owl, some of the leaves, sun center, etc.) for complete kit ingredients please visit www.scrapsofdarkness.com or click on the links above.

Here are some up-close photos:

I made this piece for my son’s 1st grade teacher – she loves owls! I am so grateful for the amazing job she has done teaching my child this year! and most importantedly, he loves to read & he loves school!

I also used a bunch of my acrylic stamps and rub-ons that have been in my stash forever!  Projects like this are perfect to use up your stash and a great use for all those paper scraps that accumulate! TFL my friends and I hope you have a blessed and wonderful week!

    Hi, just found my way over from the wild art fb group. Love the chance to see all the detail shots here. This canvas is stunning. I’m sure your son’s teacher will be over-the-moon with this gift. It’s so nice.

    Love the other stuff I’ve seen on your blog too. Just had a quick glance over the last few posts and will add you to my feed.

    I found your beautiful artwork while looking for owls to post on my Origami Owl team page. This is beautiful… and as I am a paper crafting nut as well, I was immediately drawn in! Thank you for sharing your unique art!
