Check out these 5 Fun Facts about Dance
It's No. 3 that has me totally in agreement
You'll get lean and less mean
I love to dance and if I am stressed nothing beats loud, fast Latin music and a good cha cha cha around the studio. Frightens the dogs sometimes but boy it makes me feel good!
My canvas is all about using my stash.
The background is a gessoed paint piece. I make a series of these in one go ready to be used when inspiration strikes.
I slashed the paper and used leftover purple cardstock which I embossed and inserted into the slashed areas.
I am currently exploring the new Luminarte Primary Elements kits and I am loving what I can do.
I layered the cutouts and additional embossing on the edges of my canvas and then brushed and added
the Luminarte Primary Elements over the top. Using stamps to add depth but not image is also fun.
I like to seal everything when completed to combat dust and bugs!
The gorgeous girl is from a discarded catalogue. I can't tell you how long I have had it!
I detailed her with Pan Pastels, Primary Elements,
Viva Decor Pearl Pens and a touch of glitter. Trust me, she is lovely and in this case the camera lies!
Currently I am enamoured with affirmations and double meanings.
Thus the title! This is a terrific way to use up the bits and pieces of alphabets that tend to accumulate.
As we all deal or not with the month that is December maybe it is time to go find my maracas and give my lovely legs a work out! I wonder if I still can, can, can?
On second thoughts, maybe just wild maracas will keep the hips and knees working a while longer!
