Follow your dreams Canvas

Hello friends! Giovana here today, I want to show you the canvas I made few days ago, I used different mediums for this project and I hope you like it.

I started my project with an 8" x 8" Stretched Canvas, covered it with Gesso a couple of times. Then I added Lettuce and Pool Acrylic Paint, and set to dry. While my canvas was drying I stamped the pretty Prima stamp Riley Doll to a piece of Watercolor Paper in Jet Black Archival Ink, colored it with Inktense Pencils and cut it out.

After my canvas got dried, I added embossing paste over my Summer Garden stencil, then I added more Lettuce Paint to add some color, I color the flowers with Red pepper Acrylic paint, but at the end I covered one with the pretty Petallo's  flowers, I added a bit of color to the edges with Red pepper paint as well.

Then I took the Mini Chicken wire stencil and Metallic Copper paint and added it in random spots. Finally I took my favorite stencil (for now) Rays by Tim Holtz and Amber Gold Ferro Paint and added it to the left corner. The doll was added after the paint dried.

 
 
This is the final look, I worte the sentiment with a black marker.
 
Hope you like it!
Have a great day.
