Sunflower Canvas

Hello friends, how are you all doing! Today is the day we are debuting a brand new collection at Heartfelt Creations.Long days filled with sun rays begin to fade and the crisp evening breezes begin to call for some cozy wool knit sweaters as the fall season slowly ushers out the lazy days of summer.

I have a water color background canvas welcoming the autumn days and also the bright sunny sunflower.



Instructions

 Its a mixed media canvas measuring 8" x 6". Layer a thin coat of white gesso on the canvas. Using texture paste and stencil create the first layer and heat dry it. Sprinkle water and then random sprays of water color, sprays and shimmer color. In between every layer, heat dry the canvas. 
Stamp and die cut several pieces from the HCD1-7153 Sunflower Accents Die and stamp set in Archival Black ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating die. Color each of the accents using any medium (here I have used water color using distress inks).
Also stamp and die cut several pieces using the HCD1-7153 Sunflower Accents Die from Beary Fun Retreat Paper Collection using Archival Black ink on white cardstock. This will form the foliage and filler leaves. Color with distress inks Vintage Photo, Pine Needles, Twisted Citron, Barn Door. Shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit.
For the center die cut several pieces of the Sun Kissed Fleur using  white cardstock and then color and shape the petals and leaves using the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Complete the flower with some center prills. 
To assemble all on the canvas, use soft gel to place all the leaves, sunflower accents and then some twines. To finish the canvas layer the large sunflowers. Embellish with some art stones and prills. Use a sentiment from the paper collection and tuck it on the canvas.
