Hi there! I'm stumbled across you through various surfing and your blog name caught my attention! Hello Love Shack! I live in the Happy Shack! :-) I'm also taking Donna Downey's Canvas Create but I haven't had a chance to get started on January's lesson yet. Your piece is beautiful!


Hello - I found you from "In the Studio ~ Sneak Peek Friday". And I love how your canvas turned out - it's Beautiful!!

this is so beautifully rendered. Wow, it's cool to see your process, I always wondered how it was done, lol.

It's so beautiful! Love how you can use it with your art journaling. That will be sweet to look back on.

Wonderful eye candy lusciousness! I also enjoyed your desk space, so neat!


It's beautiful! I love the soft blending. Lovely!


I am getting to really like this style of flower...and finger painting! Such bliss! I think it is fun to see all the ways your word is cropping up!


This is gorgeous! I love the colors. What a great inspiration photo... that patina is amazing. Did you use something to give your stencil dimension? It doesn't look flat... unless you did that with paint. I love 'joy rising'. Sounds like a fun class. Beautiful work Roberta!!

Your painting is so beautiful, I love all the textures and colors!


Yoru canvas is wonderful!!! I'm signed up but haven't tried the first one yet, soon.


Oh my gosh...I LOVE this canvas! The texture, the colors, the words - perfect! Also, stencils in a album instead of thrown in a bin (like mine) is brilliant. I am going to have to try that for sure. I am also dying to try Project Life. I don't have all my supplies yet...so I hope to start in February. :)
