I Painted a Canvas

Ok - as you all know by know, I LOVE Pinterest and I get tons and I mean tons of ideas from there.  So, while on there, I found a painting that I just loved and pinned it and clicked through since she painted it from one she found she really liked and found one similar at World Market, but did her own take and it was so beautiful.  So, I just had to do it too!  I used my colors and didn't add as many dots, because I needed another color and at the moment, I am not sure what color that should be.  So, for now, it is staying as is. I may add more color later.

My Take on it all:

I don't know how to add a link yet and not see all the garb!  I will eventually figure it out.  But you can go to her blog and see her creativeness too.

My new Obsession...Quatrefoil!!!

Well, if you don't know what Quatrefoil is, it is a pattern that I am so in love with. I want to stencil it on things, but I want to make my own stencil with my Cricut and I cannot find a cartridge to make it.  I am attaching photos of the design. There are actually variations of this pattern, but this is one of my favorites.

I love it!  I found on Pinterest (big surprise there!!!).
