Have you ever had moments in your life that inspire you, whether they were good or bad?
First I had a girlfriend who had a man problem so we did what any girlfriends would do...
we drank wine, ate chocolate until she felt better.

Then a couple of days later I dumped some letters from a project down on the floor that I was working on and it just hit me, or should I say inspired me....maybe it was a chocolate induced inspiration, cause we did eat a whole lot of

 From those two things, a canvas was born, and it's basically nothing but text.

If you could unscramble the letters it would say this:
 Love is all mixed up. Trust your instinct and let go of regret. 

DecoArt Americana paints applied with a brayer directly to the canvas
Bannana Cream, Tangerine and Snow

Then letter cuts out on the Cricuit
Out of Character and Don Juan

Sealed with Americana DuraClear Varnish
