If Friends Were Flowers I'd Pick You



If friends were flowers I would pick you.  One of my favorite sentiments from the Vintage Affections Collection Friends which you can find by clicking here.   This was perfect to go with this mixed media canvas.  To add some additional flowers I used the LDRS Designer Dies - Darling Square Set which you can find here.  This set has the cutest little flowers which were perfect for this project.


I wouldn't even know where to begin explaining how I created this canvas.  Honestly, I woke around 4:30 with this project on my mind and I just started.  I didn't even really thing about it...I just did it.  There is a lot of gesso, texture paste, metals, flowers, chip pieces, sprays and micas.  It's all about layers and drying each one before adding the next.  



Thanks for coming by today I will be back soon,  Rhea
