Love Helps Us Grow Canvas

Happy Mother's Day!

I know you're all very busy eating breakfast in bed
and being completely pampered, right? ;o)
I hope so!
So I'll keep this short.

I wanted to share the gift I made for my step-mom.

I've been obsessively watching mixed-media on canvas
videos on YouTube for a few weeks now, 
and finally decided to take the plunge and try it myself.

Click on the photo to see all the details.
There's lots!

For this project I used a 10''x10'' deep-edge canvas
and added layers of book paper, acrylic paint, stamps in StazOn ink, 
Faber Castel markers, and black gel pen.

I had each member of my family finger paint a blossom
which I then turned into a flower.
Then we each thought of at least one word to describe 
my step-mother, and wrote those on the front, 
and along all four edges of the canvas.

I really hope she loves it!
And I hope each of you have a wonderful Mother's Day!
Thanks for stopping by.
