Blooming Marvellous ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your Easter weekend is going well. I have had this idea for a while and I finally got around to creating it and I am happy that I did and I am happy with the end result and here it is …
A 20cm square canvas
Lots of lovely depth and texture
All the yummy flowers and embellishments
All the lovely details
Created for me and especially for these Challenges

Country View Crafts Challenge Pimp it up!
Emerald Creek Dares Spring
Frilly & Funkie Challenge Bloomin Marvellous in vintage muted pastel tones: I did add a little pink to the top of the roses as they were getting lost on the canvas
Mixed Media World Challenge Spring
Mix It Up Challenge Blog MIUCB#12 Anything Goes
That’s Crafty Challenge Spring into Action
For me this was a big step because it is a canvas that is bigger than I usually create and I think that’s why it has taken me so long to getting around to create it. I am comfortable with my usual 5” x 7” canvas but this one is 20cm square and it seemed so big at first lol! I know it’s quite good too because hubby was impressed and he thinks it’s beautiful too, if a little feminine, so I will try to create a more manly themed canvas next time. I need to purchase further 20cm square canvas panels lol!
I used the following items: a canvas, DecoArt Americana acrylic paint, a diamanté pin, Distress Oxide ink pads, ephemera, laser cut wooden butterfly and heart, Pebeo acrylic paints, Pebeo acrylic texture paste, Pebeo gesso, Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen, Tim Holtz ink blending tool and foam, Tim Holtz stencil, vintage style seam binding, Wild Orchid Crafts paper flowers and leaves and Wild Orchid Crafts silk flowers.
A lot of different products and techniques, if you have any questions about how I created it then please ask and I’ll be happy to share. However I didn’t think it needed a full list or description as they are all techniques and products I have used many times before when I have shared my steps with you. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do soon ttfn Karen x
