Where in the World Challenge: Canada

#2: Canada. So I'm thinking "what can I do for Canada, eh?" well, they have the flag, that's an obvious pick. I also thought of doing  a pretty landscape with mountains & trees & river, but eh I wasn't feeling it. Then I started thinking that Canada has supplied us with a lot of fantastic actors who have entertained us a lot over the years, to name a few: Michael J. Fox, Brendan Fraser, Keanu Reeves, Anna Paquin, Christopher Plummer, Rachel Mcadams, Ryan Reynolds, Ryan Gosling, the list goes on...So I thought maybe I should pick one of these gifts from Canada & pick a movie they have done & use that. 

I picked 2, that just happen to have been in the same movie....Rachel McAdams & Ryan Gosling in "The Notebook". There were a lot of ideas I had for this movie, love letters, the costumes, dancing in the street, the kiss in the rain. I decided to go with a love letter & rain to portray the famous rain scene where he says "I wrote you 365 times".

Using a white on my ring finger & gray on the other fingers. With acrylic paints I used my fan brush & combined white & a light blue to make it look like it's raining. I used black & red for the letter on my ring finger. So here is my Canadian day design to celebrate the two lovely Canadian actors that attributed to this movie.


  1. I love the story of how you came up with it - great idea!!!

    1. thanks! I actually really liked the fan brush effect, I'll have to try that again sometime.
