I {heart} Linnie Blooms

Hello,  Donna K here with a very photo filled post.  
This is my first post for Linnie Blooms…yay me!
I was so excited with all of my Linnie Blooms treasures when they arrived I went a little canvas crazy!
I started out with the 9" X 11" canvas blank and an idea for a Love theme wall hanging.
I used spray color shine paint in peach, acrylics in greens, browns and white along with lots of metal embellishments and ribbons to create this keepsake.  
I painted and/or stamped on each Canvas Heart piece.

At the top of this piece I used metal eyelets to create  a sturdy place to thread the ribbons for attaching a dowel and chain so that this piece can hang nicely for wall display.
On to project number two…
another Canvas Heart project.
I created this Valentine and used Gelatos for my first time to shade the canvas piece.
How FUN they were.  I simply sectioned the piece, shaded it and added stickles for some shimmer in the center.  I also used 3D adhesive to pop up the heart so it has plenty of dimension.

These Gelato kits  make it so easy to shade and combine your colors.

Lastly…I just wanted to make oooonnnneeee more project.
I wanted to use an owl, but somehow that owl …. with some orange acrylic paint turned onto her side and became a FISH.
 A feathery gold fish with shimmery gills and a pearly eye!

I'm pretty tickled with how this sweet little CAS card turned out.  
She will make a great valentine for someone special this year.  
Thank you for letting me go a little photo crazy in this post and for the opportunity to share my fun, canvas filled projects with you today. 

We'd love to have you join us for our January Sketch Challenge here at Linnie Blooms.
