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,

I really hope I have time to do more of this as I really enjoyed it.
