Heart Flower Mixed Media Canvas Process Post!

How's that for a long post title? Ha! 

Good morning my friends! Today I have a heart themed - could be Valentine's, could just be for home decor - mixed media canvas, and I took pictures as I worked on it to share with you! 

(I try to do several canvasses like this at once, and just keep a "stock" of them for fun projects.) 

Take apart the Maya Road heart chipboard album from the Love Life kit, and cover it in mod podge. Adhere it to the backside of a paper.

Flip it over, cut it out, and adhere it to the canvas.

Cut some wonky scallops and tuck them behind part of the heart.

Add a stem and some leaves.

Layer a couple more paper hearts.

Using a red gelato, add some pretty watercolory red around the edge of one side of the heart.

Go back around all the edges and use a black Pitt pen and a fine tip pen to define the edges with black. Throw some rub ons on there too! 

Add some doily and bubble wrap stamping on the edges of the canvas, and then a handwritten phrase.

The final touches- some sparkle (using the Zazzle from the Love Life kit!) and glittery hearts.

All done! :)
