"Canvas of Me" Tutorial for Swirlydoos

Hi all. I'm super excited to share a project that I am just getting started on! It's a new year, and I always say that I am going to scrap myself every year or work on a "Book of Me", but I never do it. So this year, I thought I'd try something else to see if I would actually commit to doing a project just about myself, and just do a "Canvas of Me"! The only reason that I am even getting started on this is because I've had this idea brewing in my head for a while, and while browsing at Michaels, it HIT me: just do a canvas, and keep it simple to describe yourself. Instead of focusing on journaling and straining to come up with topics, use the embellishments and colors to symbolize who I am.

So, here is the first part of my canvas, which is a four inch square canvas panel that I will add to a larger canvas, along with a few more little squares.
To see how I made this tiny canvas, watch this video: CLICK HERE.

Let me know what you think, and thanks for reading/watching!
