Mini canvas


This canvas is approximately 6 x 6 inches. I've gessoed and painted with acrylics. I then added 2 images from Gecko Galz, and then the fun really starts.
I added some Prima flowers, chipboard key and bits and bobs from my stash. I then blended everything with more paint.

I do so love this creative inky, sticky painting process.

I'm entering this over at Snazzy's where they are asking us to be inspired by Ania Dabrowska  aka Finnabair. So I really couldn't pass this one up, as I'm still on a creative high after attending 2 of her workshops on her recent New Zealand tour.

This is so beautiful, Debi... the central image is enchanting, and I love that chocolate label, adding such vintage detail - and your Finnabair style embellishing is gorgeous! The colours are so serene and lovely - this is way up there with my all-time favourites of yours... a wonderful piece of art!

Hi Debi and thank you for taking part in our Snazzy's DT challenge this week.

Your Finn inspired canvas is wonderful. I love the image you used and the colours are beautiful. I especially like the scattering of tiny beads.

Hugs
