Yam Puff Lacrosse

Good morning everyone!! And a very happy Monday!!  Is that possible?  Happy Monday?? haha!! Monday really comes all too quickly!!  And now it is time to go back to the working grind for the week... Yuck! But that is what it is!! I hope you all had a nice weekend though.

A while back I was looking around and then asking around for who could create a digital image for Lacrosse. I have a Lacrosse player... my youngest daughter Bailey is a Goalie. I wanted a girl lacrosse player and a girl lacrosse goalie. I searched and searched and just couldn't find a digital image anywhere. Then I went to Kit and Clowder and started asking who would do images. And then Alyce mentioned Yam Puff!! Duh!! I knew that! So I reached out to her and asked her about a commission. I paid for the two images and I've been waiting while she gets her orders completed. Then one day .. she sends me the images she has been working on. I'm floored!! They are perfect. And now I have them completed!!  They are so wonderful!!  If you ever want a commissioned piece of work.. definitely go for Yam Puff!! She was so easy to work with and she gave me just what I wanted. Not to mention her art is ADORABLE!!  I knew I would make use of these.. for the girls, the coaches, etc for at least the next four years! And then there is college .. so I am super excited!! And I went to work on using them for the first time. I made an altered canvas which I framed in an altered frame. And then I also made a matching card, which I'll post in a couple of days. First comes the canvas:

I created this for the coach. I figured she could hang it in her room or something. The two images are from the most wonderful YamPuff!! And they were both commissioned. Thank you Thank you!! for these awesome images!! If you haven't guessed, her High School team is  the Allatoona Bucs or Buccaneers. The frame started out this awful wood. It was a dark brown wood and it wasn't very attractive. I purchased it from Goodwill. I painted it black and then I splattered white and red on it. Their colors are of course red, black and white HAHA!!  Just in case you didn't get that! ;)  I altered a bottle cap and added Coach Carmichael to that and put that on the corner. I wanted to personalize it for her. I took the canvas and painted it a lighter gray and then splattered it with black, white and red. I cut that A in the middle out with the Silhouette and then I colored it in. I also cut the "Allatoona Bucs Lacrosse" out with the Silhouette. The two girls are colored with my Copic markers. I fussy cut them with a little white border around them. I really love that look. And that's it! I had a lot of fun creating it and she really seemed to like it. I gave it to her at the dinner we had to celebrate the team. See you in a couple of days to share the card that went with it. I'm not going to post that tomorrow as I'll be posting the Open-Minded Crafting May Challenge that day ;)
