Daisy Mixed Media Canvas

Good Morning all, i hope you all enjoyed your weekend. 

Today i am sharing this Mixed Media Home Decor Canvas that i made for my mum for Mother's Day. 

Box Canvas 16x6" (40x15cm)  After doing the brick background (see below for details) I die cut lots of daisies from white card, made them up, added yellow stamens & florists wires for their stems.  I then die cut various foliage from brusho and inked cardstocks in different shades of greens and ferns from kraft card.  I then slowly built up the layout.

The top half.  I added a lovely big bee metal charm ive had in my stash for years.

The bottom half, i added more foliage and ivy in the bottom as you naturally find at the bottom of a wall

Just close ups. Once it was all stuck on i sealed everything with a matt sealant to keep it all fresh. 

The wall - first i added texture paste through a stencil and once dry i added black acrylic paint over the whole canvas.  Once dry i put the stencil back over and added red and orange starlight paints to the bricks, i found doing it this way kept the black between the bricks better.  I then added touches of green paint to give a kind of mossy effect once everything is added on top. 

Items Used:
Tattered Lace fern dies
Joanna Sheen & Brittania Ivy dies
Heartfelt Aster die set
Stitched Daisy dies
Tim Holtz foliage die
Brick stencil
Imagination crafts starlight paints
Golden Texture paste
Cracked Pistachio & twisted citron oxide inks
