Mixed Media Canvas

I was very inspired by a canvas demonstrated by Christy Tomlinson (Scarlet Lime) titled 'Love is in the air' and the fabulous video tutorials she prepared  (see link to her blog).  Christy demonstrated a 10"x10" canvas, but being my first mixed media adventure, I decided to try a smaller version so mine is 6"x6".  I had so much fun with this (albeit very messy) and will try a couple more of her tutorials soon . . . so much to learn!.

This is how mine turned out:

I used a 6"x6" canvas and followed Christy's instructions for sealing etc.  Background paper is Basic Grey Ledger paper.  Flags, tree branch, flowers, and little people all cut from Prima Jack n' Jill paper stack.  Mixed rub ons, teeny flower punch, mesh for stamping background, stampin up roller for yellow paint, misc ribbon, Making Memories paint, baby wipes, Mod Podge glue and a 0.3 Copic multiliner pen.
