my GiSt class canvas

I recently did an online class by Giovanna Scott, a very talented mixed media artist.
Giovanna created the most amazing tree in her class
which i attempted to replicate. 

My tree ended up with one very large overhanging limb and 
trying to put my own spin on things it just looked like 
it was begging for a swing. I remember the swing 
we had as kids hanging from a pussy willow tree in our backyard. 

so I added a little swing with some twine and chipboard.
I was going to stick it down but i liked the idea of it 
dangling there, just waiting for a child to start swinging...

I love how my canvas turned out, thanks for a great class if you're reading this Gigi. :)

So if you're looking to try something a little different creatively
 I highly recommend this class by Giovanna
