Ocean Colors

Happy Weekend to you!!  
A little bit of spare time turned into hours of fun!!  This canvas is fun and inspired by Finnabair's work.  I love how you can spray color all around and watch it run and turn into other colors. I love how the textures come out and some unexpected really cool things appear.  Making a canvas like this is artful discovery of your thoughts, it relaxes me.

First came the Gesso then the Finnabair doily mask......many color changes.

I love the discovery of items tucked away in the canvas

Having a smartphone is great when you are unsure of the direction you should go.  I sent a photo and asked for advice from a dear blogger friend.  It is such a blessing to have a friend you can just text and ask, thanks Karen.

Here is the end result of the canvas, I just love the colors and all the trinkets that are in it.

Hope you have a very crafty weekend or adore some of the new babies I am seeing on Facebook, congrats new grandmothers!


  1. Kelly this is wonderful. As you say a feast for the eyes as you discover the elements hidden behind the beautiful mix of colours. Whilst the influence of Finnabair is evident this is very much more about you and the joy you had making it. Jenny x

  2. Very pretty, Kelly my girl! I love those colours and it is a gorgeous canvas!

  3. Very beautiful Kelly, I love the wonderful colours you used and there is so much to see in there too. I really love the flowers and the clock shape too. I did a class with Finn late last year but was not happy with my creation.... I think it is time to have another go! Thanks so much for inspiration (as always). Hugs, Anne xx
