Canvas Art

Wow guess what I have managed to do something for me!!! I have tried some canvas art. With this one I just covered the canvas with gesso then red acrylic paint. Around the edges I added some bronze paint then some darker areas. The heart has been die cut out of a piece of fabric using an Xcut die called Homespun Heart. I then put some of the paint on this too - lovely inky fingers. I have added some Frantage glitters and Mahogany embossing powder. The flowers have been cut using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die then put brads in the middle. The butterfly is a Memory Box die called Vivienne and used this to cut out the background in a dark brown glitter card. The stamp is one from my stash that I won several years ago now. I have also used a stencil from Dylusions called Diamond of a Border and the bronze paint.
Here are some close ups.

I was inspired by the artist over on Paperartsy, Jo Myhill. She has done three projects so I have tried to take some ideas from them and came up with this.
I am therefore entering the challenge there:-
Paperartsy - Challenge by Jo Myhill,
Creative Inspiration Paint - Anything Goes,
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes,
Sparkle 'n' Sprinkle Challenge - Anything Goes, glitter , embossing powder o flock,
All Crafts Challenge - Anything Goes no cards,
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes, and,
Divas By Design - Use red.
I really hope I have time to do more of this as I really enjoyed it.

well done on making something just for you, it's all too easy to get caught up making projects for other people all the time. I love the yummy red background here and the glitters.
