Mixed Media Canvas Fun

Happy Sunday!  It's so nice today that I'm actually wearing sandals!  Oh, my toes are so happy!!!

This is my latest canvas.  It measures 8 x 10 (inches, that is) and I love it.  Painting the sun really got me in the mood for warm weather.
Hello Sunshine
After I took this photo I added dots to the four corners.  The two birds are cut from Starbucks coffee cup wraps.  I love the varigated texture that they add.  The grass area is strips of different patterned green paper.   The white dots are made using bubble wrap.  All paints are acrylic.  I also used a black sharpie for outlining.

Whatever you are doing, don't forget to smile!

Peace,
Kay

Fabulous Kay - love the sunny look it has and those birdlies are gorgeous.

Remember us collecting coffee wraps in that lovely book store in Santa Fe? Sometimes it seems just like yesterday, other times like another world. Sigh :(

Hugs, Di xx

So pretty. Great idea to recycle & paint the S/Bucks holders. I'll have to remember that. This is SO cheery, I can well see why you were thinking 'spring'. Not been that hot in SC as yet. We did have some pretty sun, but with a nippy, biting wind. Rain today, from the storm up in the northern plains I guess. I can deal with rain, better than SNOW! TFS & Hugs

Hi Kay

Ahem, yes, I confess - I do have every single H2O color - shame on me. Such a greedy little piglet :(

Happy Wednesday!!

Love and hugs, Di xx

You are having fun with your birds and canvases. I think I like this one best out of the two I have seen. Thank you for your visit and kind comments. sorry but the work in progress will not be on show until April. I am frantically trying to get ahead for the next few months so I do not have to panic when we go away. Hope you have a good week. xx Maggie
