A Canvas or Two from Linda

A Canvas or two with

Linda Thompson

"Bright as a Flower"

This canvas is 4" x 12" I was given a pile of these canvas's from a friend, they are
 12" by 4" so I have been creating gifts for friends.

Starting on one side of the canvas witha  white flower spray hidden behind an array 
of roses and cherry blossoms. Raffia has been tucked in behind the flowers to
 mimic the look of a bow along with some lace. 

As we go along the cluster of flowers grows to include more cherry blossoms,
 apple blossoms, gardenias and an azalea.

Up the other side, again a white flower spray has been used, cherry blossoms
 and apple blossoms along with more Raffia and lace.

Some tulle has been tucked in behind the paper and then heated 
with a heat gun to make it curl and shrink.

"Dream Believe Be Happy"

Again starting of at one end you will find Roses and a cherry blossom teamed 
up with self adhesive leave ribbon & crushed organza ribbon.

An Azalea flower takes center stage with a bunch of stamens, a rose and 
cherry blossom. I've tucked some burlap ribbon in along with some lace.

Raffia ribbon bow in two colours topped with a butterfly.

Another small cluster of flowers and stamens.

Washi tape has been torn up and the sides covered, a light coat of gesso applied 
to tone the colours down and the canvas sprayed with glimmer mist.
