London 2012 Olympics canvas

I've taken two weeks off work for some time off and to take in all the Olympics while I get messy and inky. I was so proud of our gymnastic boys this afternoon. Well done, I was on the edge of my seat!

This little 7" x 5" canvas will be my memory of enjoying my time off and crafting away while the Olympics was on.

I'm entering this into the brilliant Try it on a Tuesday too, their two week challenge is 'So very British', and I only have a few hours left to enter into it. I better get cracking then.


I used Portobello Road Urban Stamps, Dylusions inks Postbox red, and London blue, red and blue acrylic paint and gesso.


I love being off work, see if I can post something everyday! Have I just set myself a challenge? Oh no.
Is it G&T O'clock now?

Hi Michelle, I love your canvas!! What a fabulous way to remember these wonderful games. Yes, the gymnastic lads were brilliant today, shame about the change from silver to bronze but an amazing achievement nonetheless. Sorry for Tom Daly though......Anne x
