Open the Door - BoBunny The Avenues Canvas

Hello Everyone

I hope that you have started your week on a great note and that Monday and Tuesday have been good for you.

I created a canvas using the gorgeous BoBunny The Avenues Collection and wanted to share it with you.

Of late, I have been feeling a little anxious about changes that are happening in my life and also changes that will be happening. I guess we sometimes, all are a little afraid or anxious about change and it is very normal to feel that way. But I also decided that being anxious or afraid, does not really serve me, and that with any change, it is really what you make of it and the mind set you give yourself everyday.

So this canvas was created with the idea, to remind myself that every door that opens is an opportunity and not to be afraid to open that door. Even if I have opened it and it's not quite what I thought it would be, I can always then make another decision. But "open the door" and allow myself the choices!

So here is my canvas.

I just love The Avenues and have so enjoyed creating with it over the past few months.

I love the shutters and the doorways and the soft, beautiful colouring! Just perfect for this canvas.

So how about do you feel about change?

Hope you have a super evening!

  1. I love this canvas. It has that the look of an beautiful old neighborhood. Change can be very scary. I guess it depends on what you think will be happen. There are some changes I see coming that I look forward to and others I fear.

  2. What a beautiful canvas Denise and as I read your post I can see how much it means to you which just makes it more beautiful. I like what you said about opening the door and giving yourself the choice, that's a powerful statement. Remember when one door closes, another opens.

  3. A gorgeous canvas full of symbolism and hope. Change can be threatening and disruptive; it can also bring about new opportunities and teach us new skills. When you open the door and step through, I hope you welcome the change with enthusiasm and hope :)

  4. Wow!!!!!!!!!!!! This is absolutely gorgeous! Love what you've done here.....stunning!

  5. It is really such an amazing canvas! Love it so much!

  6. Beautiful work. Such a gorgeous canvas, and you've done an amazing job with The Avenues too

  7. Your canvas is beautiful Denise. Well done.

  8. LOVE your canvas Denise! Avenues and you are a beautiful match you know. I have very often found that what has been really daunting to begin with and has demanded courage of me, has resulted in a major step in my own development. I can so relate to seeing one door closing but another one or several opening where I have not expected. xoxoxo

  9. Oh that is so pretty too Denise... love the window/door... beautiful canvas.

  10. This is so pretty!! You are firing on all cylinders at the moment Denise!!
