Today I am going to start off by sharing another layout from my eldset son Robert's birthday.  I used Let's Get Sketchy Team B September Week 4 sketch.

Here he is opening one of his presents!

and here are a few close-ups!

 Lot's of fun stitching!

 great 3D embellishments from Paper House!

The other project I'm sharing is a very simple canvas I made for a friend that is struggling very badly with chronic pain from surgery gone bad and other health complications.  

I started with a 5x7 canvas that I covered with a layer of black gesso.  I applied it using an old credit card so that there would be a bit of texture.  Next I took one of the photos I had from that spectacular double rainbow that I saw this summer.  The rainbow is a promise from God.  I mounted it on a bit of purple cardstock and attached it to the canvas.  Finally I added an acrylic sticker that says "Never give up hope".  I thought that was a good sentiment to encourage her combined with the rainbow making it a promise from God that she should count on when she is feeling doubt and pain.

I am going to share my canvas in challenge #203 - Anything Goes over at Word Art Wednesday.

I hope that you have enjoyed these and now I am going to publish and head back to creating so I will have something to share with you tomorrow!
