Love brings you Home ♥

       Good evening friends!!

       Today I'm sharing a mixed media canvas. A different try with loads of flowers & my first canvas with chipboard. Had lots of fun creating this ♥ .
       I took a 8"x10" canvas & primed it with a layer of gesso. Applied yellow & orange acrylic paints to create a distressed background. 

       Applied a coat of diluted gesso to tone down the colors & then added some home-made texture paste using HOTP & TCW stencils. 

       Then added the flowers & flourish chipboard from Dusty Attic-Doodads #7  and loads of semi-circle glitter beads.

       Added the words Life, Love & Home using Tim Holtz stencils and home-made texture paste. Then went crazy with scented spray inks from Hampton Art (grapefruit, vanilla, cinnamon & lavender).
       Took the "Journey" chipboard from Dusty Attic-Word Pack #3 & then embossed with metallic pink embossing powder in two layers. Then added highlights with red & pink pigment ink & embossed them too with clear embossing powder. Added it to my canvas & gave a coat of glossy accents for a glossy look!! 

       Added highlights to the flowers & flourish using acrylic colors & Inka gold in Gold. Hand painted the sentiment.
       Added some background flourishes in Archival Monarch orange & sponged the border using the same. 

       Well, I am happy with how it turned out. Gifted it to my cousin's House warming party with best wishes for the happy & exciting journey in their new home
