Spring Canvas with Astrid

Hello Shimmerz friends and happy April, the month that Spring is meant to start here in the Northern Hemisphere. So I decided to create a little Spring Canvas:

I have a few step out photos to show you how this came together.
I took a 6 x 6 canvas and layered on some scraps of paper
Next some further texture was added with the help of some stencils.
Then everything was covered with a thin layer of gesso, I also added a scrap of chipboard still on the left side as well as some background stamping.
I chose a few embellishments I wanted to use
But not before having selected my chosen colours first. This time I decided to use Vibez sprays only
These are the colours I used:
Palm Reader
Jeni B Bleu
Grape Escape
Quit Yer Wine-n
This is always my favourite part, I love to see how the sprays blend and play together.
Time for the finishing touches....
The flowers were glued onto the little paper clay frame that I made in a mold and coloured with the sprays to match
When doing a canvas it's always important to pay attention to the edges too. I used tissue tape, stamps and of course the sprays
And here another look at the finished piece.

Well that's it, and don't forget:
See you next time and thanks so much for your visit!!
