Mixed media canvas....LOVE

 Good Day All!! I have been so busy making Christmas presents, that I haven't made anything just for fun lately!! And plus I can't post Christmas goodies!! But today I received some inspiration from a pinterest pin of a canvas painted and embellished  the opposite way, so I wanted to give it a shot. Unfortunately, I forgot to photograph every step, so all I have is beginning and end. I started with a blank canvas and used the back. I applied two coats of gesso and let dry.

After it was good and dry I applied some texture paste in a dot stencil on the canvas and wood framing and let that dry.

After that was dry I used alcohol inks in aqua, pink and yellow and sprayed 
the canvas vigorously!! Let dry.

After that was dry, I added a stamped phrase "live life to the fullest" on the canvas.
I then hot glued my letters on and flowers and DONE!!

Love the way this turned out...hope to add a full photo set from start to finish, 
when I attempt this again.  Thanks for looking and God Bless!!

Snail Mail Mania

There is something about receiving mail, no not bills, but mail from friends or loved ones.
Especially pretty mail, decorated just for you. Pretty envelopes that someone took time on.
And then pretty words inside <3
I use to hate to write letters, hate it!! But now...I want them, and I want to write them, It may be shorter then maybe the average letter, but it is writing and keeping in touch with friends.
Why not reach out to a long distance friend this way with me? Why not reach out to me?
Want a pen pal? Let me know!
Let's send pretty mail to each other!!

Thanks for looking! God Bless!!
