Actually I Can




Hello how are you today? I currently have my right arm in a splint, but I am thinking of ways that I can still craft! 

Today I am sharing this very, very heartfelt canvas, which I completed some time ago. I began by drawing a lady in a wheelchair and die cut her. I also die cut the words  “Actually I Can” I used a box canvas and created the background with  Distress Oxides. I also used several Indigoblu Stencils, the rose stencil is one of my very favourites, it is so gorgeous and easy to use! I used  Indigoblu stamps around the edges of the canvas. I stamped some of the larger images  onto copy paper -  tissue paper would have been better, but I did not have any so copy paper had to suffice!  I added some colour to the stamped images, and adhered them to the canvas. 



I stamped and fussy cut paintbrushes and pencils from the Indigoblu Art stamps range. I stood some of them up in little glass jars, and added the others as embellishments.

  1. WOW brilliant canvas -you drew the lady in the wheelchair-brilliant I am so envious of people who can actually draw-my little grandaughters used to ask me to draw things--laughed then showed me how to really draw them-still alive to this day !!!Love all the added brush embellishments

    Sorry that I visited not often lately but I had a bad angina and no power at all.
    Happy start of the weekend and I cross my fingers for your arm that you soon can use it for your wonderful art in the normal way again!

  6. You certainly CAN create Jannet, the copy paper worked a treat. It's great when our improvisation's work. Your silhouette die cut stands very proud on your canvas, as does your words. Another one to be proud of.
    Hope you are feeling better ??
    Have a super weekend Hugs Tracey x

  8. I feel for you and your arm. I am basically typing with one hand, as I hurt my wrist recently. I can certainly empathize, and hope you understand why I'm running so late visiting.

    This is a poignant and beautiful canvas. It may be a fantasy, but it is a gem indeed. Thank you SO much for sharing it with us at Art Journal Journey. We are so glad you joined us and hope as your arm improves we will see even more of your beautiful art at AJJ.

  11. Your gorgeous art made me think of one of my favourite quotes..."whether you think you can or you think you can't.. you are right!!". Love your silhouette Jannet, and all the fabulous extra elements in this piece of art, very poignant too, hope you are back to 100% soon. Love seeing your creations at The Artistic Stamper challenge x
