Spring Canvas

I am finally seeing some signs of Spring...how bout' you?
I needed some of it in my home...
so I created this canvas piece for my mantel...
How it came about is a group of friends got together at Joan's Gardens
for a day of fun and prior to it Dar (from Dar's Crafty Creations) and I got our
heads together and decided we would work on a canvas....
so all six if us made one, each very different and unique to who we are.....
we had so much fun and laughter and good food and we all shopped
while we at Joan's too...oh my, it was like being in die heaven!!!
I brought home something like 13 or more new dies, plus other goodies
the ole' budget was blown to heck that day!!
 
 
Anywho, I love how she turned out with all her Spring colors......
the canvas is very "3D" and has alot going on.....
the canvas is appro 11 x 14....
 
 
I used paints, sprays, pearls, bubble wrap, dies, flowers, a hero arts bird stamp
rub ons, stamps and a wonderful saying from Crate Paper that says  
"stepping back from her canvas, she saw her soul"...I LOVE that!!
 
 
I am entering this in the challenge at City Crafters....
it's an anything goes challenge..sort of...
each design team member has a requirement to use and you need only to pick one..
I choose 3 of the four...
Ros use pearls, Kirsty use mist or spray, and Charlene use a circle die.....
and also at Cheery Lynn Designs the challenge is "Back To Nature"
I used one of their wonderful doily dies English Tea Party
and also to Simon Says Stamp and Show...anything goes
 
 
I can't wait to make another one, so very different from this one!!
