Perspectives and Whimsies Mini Canvases Project + A Giveaway

[On the Blog] Perspectives and Whimsies Mini Canvases Project + A Giveaway

 

Sometimes, it’s all about how you view something. A simple change in perspective can make all the difference in mixed-media art. A whimsy is defined as “an odd or fanciful notion” and that is what these mini canvases are. They are a collection of the odd and fanciful items from The Shoppe and experiment with gelatos and new materials, like Relics and Artifacts, to create something that is decidedly full of new perspectives and whimsies.
