    I think its great the way you were honest about not liking it and was willing to go and pull it all apart to change it. It’s great to know the people we all follow and aspire to also make mistakes and show us it can be salvaged! It’s lovely now!

    Kathy!
    OMG! It DID turn into a SWAN! LOVIN’ IT! I really like the little garden scene. Awesome job!!!! (want it!)

    Kathy, I agree no matter what you make, it’s terrific!!! Hope to work on my canvas mini today! Thanks,

  13. Renee April 22, 2012 at 11:42 am

    Looks like Spring! Love everything you make.

  14. Teresa April 22, 2012 at 11:59 am

    Kathy, you accepted the challenge and struck it out of the ballpark! The black cardstock was exactly what the “fugly” paper needed. I’m with you its not a very exciting paperline but with the “right” accesories a girl can tranform an “outfit”! lol

  15. lolo April 22, 2012 at 12:20 pm

    That is amazing!!

  16. Barb April 22, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    Turned out great! Love the black.

  17. Anonymous April 22, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    Another new idea…..do you ever run out??? I hope not!!

  18. Cheryl M April 22, 2012 at 1:02 pm

    I watched the video last night. You did an amazing job bringing this to the next Kathy level!! Also, if there is a cruise being planned I’m in!

  19. v April 22, 2012 at 1:11 pm

    What a fun project, Kathy! It turned out so beautiful! Still, I loved how you continued to make changes when necessary! That gives me the courage to do the same…when it’s just not right don’t be afraid to re do it!!! Thanks!

    How many hours are in your day? When do you have time to sleep? Do you sleep???? I love all of your work. What I don’t understand is how you come up with all these wonderful and unique projects, make them, film them, write up the tutorials and sleep. Inquiring minds wanna know!
    Thank you for your inspiration.

  26. Mardi April 22, 2012 at 2:12 pm

    That is so pretty! What paper line did you use for this?

  29. Shari April 22, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    Fabulous, as usual. Very different feel light & airy. Has a whimsical feel to me. Almost feel like I am a butterfly in flight enjoying someone’s yard on a sunny day.

  30. Shari April 22, 2012 at 2:29 pm

    Your work is always fabulous! This one feels different though – almost like we are enjoying the outdoors on a sunny day while in flight. Just carefree & whimsicle. Love it!

    You just proved that our creative side makes our art unique, special and beautiful to not just us but everyone viewing it. Beauty begins from within and blossoms just as this beautiful art canvas project did for you. I am so glad you changed it so that YOU were happy and it also taught us how to problem solve if we ever feel disappointed in how a project is evolving. Love it Kathy πŸ™‚

  32. Becky Dunham April 22, 2012 at 2:30 pm

    Absolutely gorgeous Linda! And what a fun idea – a mini album on canvas – gotta love it! Have a lovely Sunday sweet lady!

    It truly did turn out to be beautiful. My chat wasn’t working on ustream when you were commenting on the paper – I was agreeing with you.

    Nice job as always. Can’t wait to see what’s next.

  47. ladybug458 April 22, 2012 at 5:02 pm

    A little bit of this, a little bit of that… can make a big difference. And, of course the addition of a ladybug steals the scene. Since I celebrated my birthday a few days ago, I think this piece should make a new home in upstate NY near the Canadian border. πŸ™‚ ladybug458

  48. Scrappybear April 22, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    Oh Kathy… it is beautiful!!!

  49. ladybug458 April 22, 2012 at 5:07 pm

    A little bit of this, a little bit of that… does make a difference. I too, didn’t care for the paper. However, the seasonal addititons make a statement, especially the ladybug. Since I celebrated my birthday a few days ago, I think this piece should take flight to me in upstate NY near the Canadian and VT
    borders. πŸ™‚
