Mixed Media Canvas

I'm having so much fun making these. I'm learning as I create and it makes me so happy!

I made the one above for a friend of mine. She is an amazing person and I wanted to give her something for her birthday that conveyed that.

On my next piece, I added texture/color to the background which gives it more interest.
Mixed Media is so much fun, I just love getting out tons of stuff to see what works!

Here is a list of everything that went into this:
Acrylic paint
Water Color Crayons
Pitt Pen
Close To My Heart Legacy Writers
Close To My Heart Reinkers (sprayed on)
Close To My Heart stamp pads
Close To My Heart stamps
Pages torn from an old Hymnal
Close To My Heart cardstock and pattern paper
embroidery thread
Close To My Heart Rub-Ons
Golden's Regular Gel

Now off to clean up my mess!
Hope your day is fantastically lovely!
(yep--I just made up a word)
