Spring Mood MM Canvas

Here again with a 8x8 Canvas, depicting my current mood..."Happy ".

Oh yeah, Spring is one such season which brings such happiness to our mind and soul. Though am residing in an arab country, must say, best days are 4 years of my new wedded life at Taiwan, a wonderful country in Pacific ocean, those memories are still etched in heart. The pic is from a photoshoot taken there.

Took a primed canvas, misted liberally with Gorguss green, sunny yellow, emerald green mists - Mistries brand of Diecuts and more. And i heat set at every application to fix the color.

After misting, took TCW mini stencil of birds and feather and using texture paste applied at top corner. Then i stamped trellis kind IBS background stamp using archival ink Sepia randomly on corners. Then using TCW microbial stencil applied texture paste and misted again with topaz yellow mist. Doily frame and on top of it pic is matted on cardstocks.

Made a floral spray, using all store bought flowers here, which i was hoarding for many months. It incudes teeny tiny acrylic flowers which i pollen centred and used as an infloresence here, few prima flowers too with Cheerylynn designs ivy florish diecut leaves.

Used mdf birds, primarily gessoed and followed by that misted with pearlescent topaz yellow mist. Few paperpieced butterflies and a IBS butterfly stamped using teal colorbox pigment ink.

Few ink splatters in white and black inks to create interest and a Happy diecut is added to finish off the canvas.

Hope you like it! Thanks much for all the encouraging comments for my previous canvas and it drives me to improvise well :)
