Hello and Introducing Wood Lucker

Hello there! Its been ages since I wrote a post! I have to sheepishly admit that this is my first for this year! I seem to be more active on Instagram lately and would love for you all to join me there as well. 

Sustaining a blog is hard and yet My Dream Canvas and your constant support gives me immense joy! My aim is to bring you inspiration, fresh ideas and new content. While I have neglected my writing, my love for photography keeps me going :) I post daily snippets from my life on Instagram along with pictures of the MDC Casa. The absolute best thing about belonging to a blogging fraternity is interacting and discovering immensely talented and creative people.

Ann Wood and Dean Lucker  are the dynamic crafting duo behind an amazing and imaginative Instagram account WoodLucker. Ann particularly is renowned for her paper botanical creations. She creates stunning paper flowers and paper food among other things that look astonishingly like the real thing!! Don't believe me....take a look at my favorites from her collection. Ann manipulates paper and wire, using drawing and cutting with sharp embroidery scissors. She then applies fine cuts to achieve realistic feathers, food and flowers. These sculpted creations are then hand-sewn on to wool and velvet backgrounds before being framed in vintage frame stock. The work is delicate and a nod to craftsmanship from decades ago. Ann hand paints all the paper creations in her collection.
Ann and Dean's collaborative work combines a love for illustrated paper art and forgotten histories into  objects that are filled with sentiment and longing.













I am equally charmed by their 1940's home in Minnesota. Here are a few images....




I hope you have enjoyed seeing a preview of Ann's work and home. Visit their website and follow them on Instagram to know more about this dynamic and creative duo. 

Thank you Ann!!
