Mixed Media Canvas

Happy Thursday!
Or is it? LOL!

This is my late day and for some reason I'm always wide awake at 4:30am. Sure makes for a LONG day!
Plus this is my full weekend to work. Monday seems so far away. While most of you dislike Monday morning, I'll be jumping for joy LOL!

Yesterday Chloe and I got crafty together. Not often does she like to get involved in anything artsy.
She's the reader and writer in our our house.
So when she said she wanted to do something with canvas, I thought, what the heck! Let's do this!

She doesn't want me to show what she's working on but I'll show you what was completed yesterday.
I started with a blank canvas and added a layer of Gesso.
After that dried I added some hexagon shapes with a stencil and modeling paste.
Rubbed some Baked Brown Sugar ink over it and added some swipes of aqua colour paint. Thinking it needed to be muted a bit I rubbed more of the Baked Brown Sugar ink on the entire canvas.
I die cut some MFT flowers and leaves and sponged them. Everything was attached with a glue gun. Afterward I decided to spritz the entire canvas with some pretty Angel Mist. 

Thanks for stopping by!
