Good Morning !!

Turkey Day is almost here and the weather here in Texas is beautiful! Wish it could stay this way all year long.

Today I am sharing my first canvas with you.  I see so many beautiful canvases in blogland I thought it would be fun to try one.  SCACD has so many cute stamps I want to try to incorporate with canvas.  The latest release - MYTHICAL REfLECTIONS  has the prettiest dragon (LITTLE DRACO) that I can't wait to play around with.

The background of this canvas  is various paints with various colors of LUMINARTE SILK ACYRLIC GLAZES to give it a pretty shine. The technique was a little different. The image "BIG HAT PEEKER"   is from the ELISABETH BELL - SAMPLER #6 (HATS).  

The image is stamped on tissue paper and colored with Copics.  The tissue paper should be a non bleeding tissue paper.  After coloring the image, I cut it out and applied it to the canvas.

The butterfly is cut from paper with a little STICKLES applied on the solid purple pink.  I couldn't get a good pic to reflect the look.  It is finished off with KAISERCRAFT RHINESTONES.


Will see you back here on the 27th.

Wonderful first canvus. Love the background effects. These can be as addictive as art journals, as I can testify to 2 art journals and a weakness for doing art canvus. LOL Hope your Thanksgiving is full of family and laughter.

Lovely card. I love your textured canvas background, that adorable peeker, and the butterfly.
