Finished canvas

Hi,

Another quick post, just to share with you my new canvas.
It's called " I gave you my heart" and I used acrylic paints, watercolor pencils and crayons, stamps, inks, tissue paper, dimensional fabric paint, designer paper,crackle gloss medium, pressed flowers, say it in pearls, buttons and Copic multi liner.
I used techniques that I've learnt when I was doing the courses Mixed Media With The Girls and Art Play with Wyanne Thomson and some learnt from Milliande, another wonderful artist. The canvas is sealed with faux beeswax ( Wyanne recipe).
But most of all, I played, enjoyed and had great fun! And I really put my heart in it.
So, here is my fairy-angel dreaming her love. And here is a close up.

The text is a quotation by St. Augustine, " Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the heart." Isn't this just great?

Thank you for your visit,

Hugs,

Sanda xx

Hello :) You can send the award to anyone you want, it doesnt have to be an artist. It just goes to whoever you think deserves it. Hope that helped. Have a good night.
