His Love Made Her Happy..... Sentimental Sundays And Just Some Lines

Happy Sunday! Another Sunday means a new challenge at Sentimental Sundays! This week, we're doing something totally different! The challenge is to create a small canvas or mixed media piece! I know it may be out of our comfort zones, but if I can do it so can you! You really don't need anything special for this; your card making supplies will suffice!
I bought a 4x4 inch white canvas at Michael's. It was 2 in a pack for about $5. I did a base coat of pink with some acrylic paint (you could also use an ink pad ).After that dried, I used a damask stencil and sprayed with a gold shimmer mist. you can see it because I covered it with embellishments! Ooops!  Our sponsor this week, Just Some Lines digital stamps, provided me with this lovely image to work with. I colored her with Copics and cut her out and glued her to the canvas using white glue. You can use Elmer's, Tombow,or Mod Podge for this step. I then went back and brushed white glue over the entire canvas to seal it.After it dried, I  dabbed white ink around the edges for a distressed look.Finally I embellished as shown, using hot glue to secure. Easy peasy and so much fun! I'm going to hang this little work of art in my craft room.

I hope you'll consider stepping outside the usual  and taking a walk with us as we explore mixed media this week at Sentimental Sundays!  I can't wait to see what you create!
