CANVASWORK THE ECLECTIC DESIGNS

This page is for all the other wonderful designs that I have created that do not fit into one

of the other categories.
  When you purchase one of my designs for the most part I have a

list of the colours I used and beside it you can place your own choice of colours.  If you

are not too sure how to do this pull all my colours and then pull the colours you like, just

make sure you match the colour values correctly, to achieve the same shading for depth.

FIRST SNOW
