Live, Love, Laugh..

I was inspired after Mixed Media Monday with Tracy to sit straight down and paint on my very first Canvas, it was best I think as everything was all fresh in my mind of what to do.  I tried to stamp on the canvas as Tracy had done but it did not work with the stamps I had, it just did not look right it just did not stamp at all.  So went for the flower stencils I had. So I got all my favourite bright colors out and just started dabbing away and popping layers of flowers for the background.  I painted the main flowers at the front and attempted the best I could with leaves they are tricky.  I used my bigshot and cut letters out for the words, then I used my new white pen and went around them so they look like they are embedded in the canvas and not just stuck on top.  I used left over paint and dabbed on some cardstock and stamped with a word stamp. Then I used the Tim Holtz butterfly movers and shapers die to cut it out.. I popped bows in the buttons with some colored string I had saved.  It was from a little parcel I had received, thought it was the perfect color, I only just had enough of it for the 3 of them.  I had a lot of fun getting paint everywhere, was lovely to use such bright happy colors. 

I would also like to say a big welcome a new follower to my blog, welcome to Gibby.  

I am going to enter this in the challenge at
