Art by MiRan Facebook Team Extra Challenge - Anything But A Card

Good Morning and happy birthday to me, to me! Yep it's my birthday so we're off out tonight for a slap up meal and then I'm out tomorrow night celebrating my best buddy's 40th! Must make sure I don't get too hungover! LOL

Anyway, as there are 5 fridays in July this year, I thought we could have an extra 2 week challenge at the Art by MiRan Facebook Group. This time for something different and fun we are doing an Anything BUT a card challenge, so you could make a tag, a bookmark, alter something, make a box, make a picture or like I did and create a canvas. The choice is yours!

I used the gorgeous Leomaris and Mermaid Meara with lots of spray inks, die cuts and sea life themed embellishments. I just LOVE it! I am slowly creating a wall of canvasses (and by slowly I mean this is only the second one!), but I do intend on making about 6 in the end, all different colours and all different themes. I have a purple and grey steampunk one and now my blue & green mermaid one. Fairies are up next I think. This canvas is 8 x 10 inches and a really good size to work with - not too scary! LOL
