Just had to......D

do something other than sort out blogs this bank holiday weekend.  All this computer stuff is really time consuming lol.

So off I went upstairs and pulled out a canvas.  I wanted to throw something together quickly to make me feel I had achieved something.  

I basically stuck some flowers, mini wooden birdhouse and birds to the canvas.  I had transferred a vintage image onto some calico and laid that down too.  I added web like lace and added some feathers between the flowers.  

I had already cast some hearts in plaster on Saturday and thought they would be ideal for this project. I then painted it all over using white and pink acrylic.  

I used TH distress ink, aged mahogany to highlight the different textures and give some shadows to it.

Now that was quick huh.  I feel a little happier now I have achieved something.  Hope you all enjoyed your visit today and please do drop on by again soon.

Hugz and love
