I am having the best time with the Canvas Create series with Donna Downey! Working on canvas is awesome. I had canvases and had created some mixed media pieces mainly like decoupage. Painting and mixed media is more rewarding for me. I think I feel like a "real" artist painting on canvas.LOL. I did two for January. Mainly, I did two because I was afraid to write on the first on so whipped up a smaller one to practice on. It turned out my flower was way better on the second one. I liked the way the word goes up the side on my "practice" canvas. But I like the background on the first attempt, better. I know I will use these techniques and create more similar to this.
The February project used modeling paste. Never used this before, but you can do such neat stuff with it besides just make a textured background. I am really glad I committed to this series of lessons. It gives me a focus each month so that I have no excuses not to create.
