Creating makes me happy

I have been having so much fun creating with the January kit from Birds of a Feather. I decided to use some of the paper from the kit to create a canvas piece and I am thrilled with how it turned out.
I stared out with a blank thin 8x10 canvas. I put Mod Podge down and then tore the paper and layered it ontop. I then used the black paint dauber from the kit and a yellow/golden dauber from my stash to add some extra color to the pattern paper and make it kind of look older...
I used the bubblewrap that was wrapped around the paint dauber to make the cool black dot pattern on the how that looked...
I then cut the flowers freehand from the pattern paper and used the same black ink to edge the petals. I cut the black stem using my Circut and added it to the base of the flowers; and added the extra pieces around the flowers for fun details.
I then used my Stazon ink to stamp this great stamp from the Unity Stamp cobranded Melody Ross She Sprouted Wings set onto the canvas. I used some post it notes to block some of the image in places and randomly inked/stamped the image all around the canvas.
I finished it off with more paint along the edge... here it is and some closeup shots:

I have to say that creating canvas art is one of the most relaxing things... if you don't like part of it, just put more Mod Podge down and keep layering! I hope this inspires you to pick up a canvas and give it a try....Mod Podge rocks and you never know what beautiful piece you will create until you give it a try!!!

Happy crafting....Lynda

(I'll be back tomorrow with the rest of my kit projects....had to share this one first)
