It's always fun to start with a blank canvas and it's the main reason I'm so drawn to scrapbooking and painting. There's a certain energy I find in the uncertainty of the outcome of what you create. Sometimes I have a vision and sometimes I get a little inspiration from layers of things spread out across my table and other times I make little groupings of things I want to work with. The process is the fun part and creating makes me a happy girl!
I've been making these little layered canvases lately and I just fall in love with them each time. For these two I went with working with pinks and magenta. I think for each season I'll make a few, changing up the colors and embellishments. For now I have them sitting on a frame that hangs on my hallway wall and I can just imagine a full wall of them! How delicious would that be!
I thought I'd share a little moodboard of sorts along with the canvasas. I always enjoy styling with pretty colors and random objects.
I glittered the bottom half of one of the canvases above completely using glue and some pretty thick silver glitter. Adding a little sparkly flower piece just adds to its shine! Often during the holiday I love diving into the Christmas decor bins for all sorts of sparkly things to use on projects. Most times they only cost .50-1.00$ Hee hee Amazingly the glitter hasn't created too much of a mess and has stayed on really well. I looooove how sparkly it is!
I'm not sure if I'll make any for the holidays but I will be grabbing a few more canvasas from Michael's just in case the inspiration hits me!
Hope you enjoyed my random mess of pretty things today! Have an awesome week!
