Design by Cathy Blackstone
Cathy painted an artist's canvas with yellow paint and then covered it with 56 patterned-paper blocks for the background. Painted and distressed chipboard letters are interspersed on the blocks, along with photos, artwork, and paper-pieced accents that correspond with the letters.
