Bird Canvas Art
http://www.ashleyannphotography.com/. Click here for a link to her project. She's crazy talented, and I was inspired to create something with some cute papers I had on hand from DCWV and a pair of canvases I got on sale at Michaels for a total of $4.50!!! Such a deal! The leaves are cut at 1.5 and 2 inches using the Mother's Day Bouquet cart (one of my favs as you will see) and I used the flip function on my Expression for half of them. Once cut, I used Mod Podge to seal the paper to the canvas. (****BEGINNERS TIP**** I wasn't sure if I should use Mod Podge over the whole canvas after....I'm a newbie to it and didn't know how it would dry. I didn't and should have!) The branches were drawn freehand with pencil, then painted over with dark brown acrylic paint. I LOVE how these turned out, and I'm anxious to make more fun stuff using canvas!
