Live your Life – Breast Cancer Awareness Crafting

Linda shares with us a project very close to her heart as she walks through life waiting for word on her diagnosis.  Getting creative was a great outlet for her and we just love the special canvases she created during that time.  They stand for so much and are such a good reminder to Live you Life every day.  What a terrific gift idea for someone who is battling breast cancer or for those who need a little reminder to take care of themselves and Live your Life…Love your Life!!!


What you will need:

Tools Used: Glue Gun; A good pen (sharpie)
This project we were asked to do to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month got to be very personal when I found something in my own breast in September.   I was waiting for my doctor’s appointment when I made these special canvases. The qoute is ‘live your life, love your life,’ became so much more important to me during the wait. Its so important to live your life to the fullest.   <3  And just to let you know, I’m fine, the lump in my breast was nothing, the doctors did not see anything 😀  Please enjoy my canvases and the video I made to show you how I made them.
The video shows the details, but the fun part about this canvas is that I used the back as the front, letting the raw edges be exposed.  I covered all of the canvas with Gesso, this is not required, but creates a white smooth surface and the colors pop when added.  Speckles of paint create an amazing effect with the layers of tiny papers on the inside of the canvas turned shadow box.  Find a heart of special trinket that means something to you and add a tie of hemp or ribbon to create your own pink ribbon.
The pair of Live Your Life little canvases were created with a little water and and brushes the pink mist where you want it.  It will pool darker in some areas which looks so great.  After it dries with a Sharpie or stamp you can add your staying – Love Your Life!!!!
Here is a video with all the details.


Love these special little canvases Linda created.  We are so thrilled she got good news from the doctor, what an important reminder to stay on top of those check ups.

Thanks Linda for getting up close and personal and inspiring us!!  To see more of Linda’s work visit her blog
