Ribbons Fairy Canvas

Well it has been 2 months in my new home and getting used to transitioning visits from my husband and swapping teenagers.  I am lonely with just the 6 year old here right now but I sure have a lot of crafting time since he became friends with the kids in the neighborhood.  I have to make him come home and eat!  My little guy was extremely shy, still is to strangers, but he is blossoming and adapting so well with kids his age.  I love his joy and freedom to be himself not holding back, why can't us adults do this?  lol  I am taking lessons on their whimsy and creative play they seem to enjoy to their exhaustion.

Here is a canvas I made using a Saturated Canary image Ribbon Fairy that I colored in Copics.

I colored my background with Distressed paints and Ayeeda Sprays.  

The flowers are tiny burlap from The Paper Studio and I tinted them to match my canvas

The chipboard swirl is from Southern Ridge Chipboard which I covered in Aged Ivory Frantage from Stamendous

I doodled a bit around as I wanted the image to stand out and not get lost.

Here are some beautiful cloud photos taken from my porch after a storm passed by.

There is beauty here all the time.

Have a wonderful day!!
Hugs Kelly
